Showcars Fiberglass " Steel Bodyparts Unlimited — Avoid at all costs!- Coronet RT hoodscoop junk
My dad ordered a hoodscoop and when it arrived it was utter rubbish. The mounting studs are just 1/4" bolts cast in place at all sorts of odd angles and with different amounts of threads exposed. This was supposed to be a replica of the original, but the studs on the original are smaller. The hood in that area is flat from front to back and the scoop has over 1/8" bow in the middle so it rocks front to back. The finish is not smooth. The corners are not a smooth radius like the original so the trim does not fit right. The mounting holes for the trim are all filled in. We sent it back because the owner said he was sure he could fix it. When we got it back, it looked worse than before with a corner chipped off, a long crack along one edge, and a short crack on the other side. There are grinding marks all over it and places where there must have been voids or surface flaws that have been filled with something, but not smoothed out afterward. The tops of the louvers should all be the same height, but the middle two (of four total) are over 1/8" lower than the front and back ones, because of the bow in it. All of the mounting bosses on the bottom where the studs are embedded are broken. The owner said he needs pictures of it on the hood so he knows where to make further adjustments. Even if he gets it to sit on the hood flat, the shape of the louvers is all wrong and they don't line up right.
