shaker style scoop

Hello.. I want to take two great taste and put them together..

I want to take this cowl scoop and make it a shaker by way of a dragrace carb scoop plate. to mount it..( like the moroso plate) like this one.. but longer


attached is the scoop and photo of the unerhood of a 67-72 chevy truck for those that never seen the inner skin

as you can see there isn't much to the inner skin.. BUT it would need to be moved what would be the best course of action to do this and still give the hood some strenth.. as most of the center would be cut out..

But what would the gain be?......The hood would be weak and unless sealed properly it would leak rain water into the engine compartment....I just dont see the point, other than saying that you did it.

well thats part of it.. the other part would be to hide the efi(down the road) when hood is open.. and allow the happy gas soleniods to be out of sight..
yes drainage would be needed.. but should not be that big of a deal..

the other reason is everyone has a cowl hood...
use'n a common style that looks good on the truck but just enough difference to not be bellybutton..
will hide items.. and well be different..

I was thinking move the supports that run front to rear outboard some then reinforce the rear,front with 1/2" square tube unside them...


I could just but weld the scoop on.. but at that point it's just another vehicle with a cowlstyle hood..

I say go for it, use some common sense and ingenuity to accomplish your vision.

worst that can happen, you waste some of your money .

There are those 2 fore and aft braces there..the shaker should go up between them..turn a rim on the cut out to gain a bit of strength of the hole..requires a bit of metal work skill..

How would it look if you shortened the 'shaker' part a bit? If you brought the front edge back 6-12", and cut it off 6" short of the back, you might be able to leave the current supports, just cutting the space between them. Rolling the edge of the cutout would improve the look, and definitely add some strength, as Sam suggested.
