Hood Scoop Opening

I am installing a hood scoop on the hood my Jeep Wrangler / SBC conversion.

I have the scoop located and temporarily mounted but trying to decide what to do with the sheet metal edge of the opening. It is only visible when the hood is open but I am not a fan of a raw sheet metal edge regardless of location.

Any thoughts would be appreciated.

I use pinch weld trim to cover sharp edges and etc. Something similar to this:
PVC Pinchweld Large 18mmx11mm Black (PER METRE)
