I've had a bit of a change of plan with the hood scoop. I was going to create a raised section in the centre of the bonnet surrounding the scoop. So the hood stepped up about 1/4 inch surrounding the scoop. I did it like that in filler and put it on the van to see how it looked and I didn't like it.
Now I'm gonna smooth it in to the hood. I also decided to fill in the back of the scoop so it's a smoother line to the windscreen/ wiper cowl. I did this with some expanding builders foam which I shaped then laid some fibreglass over.
One more coat of filler tommorrow then putty,sanding and painting.
You can see below how it used to drop down fairly steeply at the rear of the scoop. I thought it made it look too much like a bolt on ricer special.
And here's the mesh I put underneath to keep out leaves etc. I made some plastic frames and used the mesh for strengthening bondo work. All those bolts are holding the scoop down nice and solid.
