ok, I have removed my grille and put in a grille delete, but I still have the pesky honey comb crap in my scoop. I really dont like that stuff at all, and was wondering if anybody new of any tricks or deletes that are out there. I have seen the aluminum peice that Upr offers, but thats too flashy for me and besides that, it says it wont fit Bullitt or 35th. Any help would be appreciated.:dhg01: :dhg01:

If you want inexpensive, try Home Depot and Lowe's for the plastic guttter guard material. It's about $3-4, and you can cut to fit and place it (glue or strap) on top (in front of) of the honeycomb. If you don't like it, you haven't invested much. It's usually shaped in a cross bar configuration, but there are some that are bars. And it comes in a variety of colors, white, black, green, tan...whatever. It hides the honeycomb and isn't as obvious as other treatments.

I got one of the billet ones and painted it black when i still had my stock hood on mine. I didn't like the honeycomb one either. it also allowed me to open up the scoop to let some cool air in.

The 35th Anniversary hood scoop is different. It is not quite as high as the hood scoop on the Bullitts. I think the Bullitt and the 01 and up GTs use the same hood scoop.

I think your correct in that. I remember reading it someplace, maybe on here, I dunno. Bottomline is I can't find the reference at the moment.

My plan for the hood scoop

Since y'all are on the subject of hood scoops, let me run this by you...

My scoop is currently off the car. I have been studying the structure underneath for the past few days. I've ordered a set blue LED police lights that I plan on mounting under the scoop. I'm going to use a dremel tool to cut away the center of the scoop's insert and mount the lights behind it.

I bought a piece of Plexiglass that I am also going to cut to cover the existing insert. Ive been told I can but spray on tint at the local hobby shop. I plan on tinting the plexiglass and using it as a lens to conceal the lights.

If I pull this off with out screwing up the whole project, I'll start a new thread to show what I've done....

LOL! I have another question about the scoops. What would it look like if I took the honeycomb out and just left it open, would I incur any problems with air catching it or excessive rust?

It would surely collect rain water as you are driving. Not to mention robins, cardinals, and bluebirds. :smile:

I did that, but I also opened up the hood to let air into/out of the engine. I thought it looked great. I did need to reinforce the hood scoop with a layer of fiberglass laid on the underside of the hoodscoop and I put a piece of mesh over the hole I cut in the hood so no large objects could fly into the engine bay. Never really had a problem with it. I ended up puting on a cobra hood, I think I still have all of the pieces (hoodscoop and mesh with frame) I could sell if interested.

I know there was someone on here awhile back that cut the hole in the hood and removed the honeycomb without doing any additional reinforcing on the hood scoop and he had the hood scoop rip off of the hood when running fairly hard (around 100 mph). If you do this, be sure to have some of the others that have reinforced their hood scoops tell you how to do it so that it won't cause you any trouble.

When you pull the honeycomb out, there are a couple of small holes in the hood that will be exposed.... It might not look so good.

I've started my light project. I'm actually going to try and drill out the holes in the insert first. If that does not show enough light, I will probably cut out the center....
