Let me first say that I haven't read through any of this thread yet, so if this question has already been asked or answered I apologize.

Is it possible to use the aluminum scoop from a 427 Cobra as a replacement for the SGT?


No. The curvature of the hood is VERY different.

Any update of the warped hood scoop issue? I also have fading or spotty stripes. My warranty runs out at the end of this month. Any advice would be appreciated.. :happy feet:


Update? What update are you looking for? There is a new version of the scoop, has been for two years, go file your claim. Stripes will likely not be covered.

Maybe lawdude needs to take this on as a class action on behalf of team shelby members and try and resolve this. It continues to amaze me that it is so hard to repair and replace these defects and very few dealers know how to do it correctly. It seems like the only people that get this resolved are the ones that pay the out of pocket expenses.

Shelby should have been more aggressive in establishing select shops that could handle this by providing more technical assistance. It also appears on average to take way too long to get claims resolved.

A real shame and tragedy........... :finger:

Did you have your scoop replaced with the latest version?

I think my sig picture below shows pretty clearly that, when done with care following the tips and tricks here, the new scoop and car shows shouldn't be an issue.

I just received my new silver hood scoop today, and was a bit surprised that it did not come with pre-drilled holes. This will be replacing my original scoop on my black 07SGT. The original was attached from underneath with the large bolts.

I am having my stripes painted on (thankfully) and I would like to provide my body shop with some clear instructions on how to attach the new scoop.

I have read through all of the lenghty history on this topic, but was just looking for some tips on drilling of the holes, using the supplied rivets, or perhaps even some rivet nuts or fasteners as some folks have previosuly recommended.

Any help or recommendations would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance for looking at this..

I would call and verify tht the scoops are not coming pre-drilled. That would complicate things but the new scoop is worth it long term.

This is true. I just received my scoop a couple of weeks ago and it came un-drilled. I have been dragging my feet on having this installed. Anybody installed one of these un-drilled scoops. Is this possible to do on your own or does a body shop need to do it. My stripes are fine, Thank God!

Well my answer every so humble is also my 1000th post. Some of us used the rivet nut method, just another type of mount rivet that allows some adjustment. If you will search there is additional info on it, location on where to purchase, and pics. TS Sam used it also, I actually still have his tool if you decide you want to borrow it. Sam goes by "devil bunny"
