If you cover the hood with aluminum foil, then apply a coat or two of wax to the foil, you can set the scoop on top, then work some resin and some shreds of mat into the gap where it's too high. You are using the hood as the bottom of your 'mold'. When the resin sets up, pull the scoop off the hood, then sand the edges smooth, being careful not to sand the surface where it will join the hood. The foil keeps it from bonding to the hood. This would be a place where you could use some of the short-strand body filler ('kitty hair'). Regular body filler would chip off the edge.
