Fiberglass Hood Scoops

When it comes to changing the outside appearance of your car there are many things you can do. Although some changes are easier to make than others, adding a new hood scoop is just one of the ways to give your car a whole new look. Hood scoops give your car a powerful look. They are great for muscle cars or anyone who has a car that has a large engine or a lot of speed. You may find hood scoops that are just add-ons that simulate the appearance of having real hood scoop or you can purchase performance style hood scoops that actually require you to cut the hood of your car to allow more room for the engine and air intake.

Hood scoops can be purchased in a variety of styles and made out of different materials. You can get a single hood scoop or a dual hood scoop depending on the look you are trying to achieve. Many hood scoops can be purchased with only flat black primer in order to give you the ability to paint your hood scoop whichever color you prefer, or you can order custom painted hood scoops to match the existing paint job on your car. Many of the hood scoops can be purchased to fit your car specifically. There are so many hood scoops to choose from that you should take your time to find exactly what you want before making a decision.

Another thing to consider when it comes to purchasing your hood scoop is what type of installation will be required. When purchasing a simulating add-on hood scoop you will need to decide between purchasing a hood scoop made out of a plastic material or a fiberglass material. Fiberglass hood scoops tend to be a little more durable and have a very nice look. Fiberglass is also very light weight so you do not have to worry about the hood scoop weighing down the hood of your car. A lot of the add-on hood scoops are very easy to install and come with full mounting instructions. They usually require you little work on your part and can be installed relatively quick. The performance types of hood scoops will require a lot more work including cutting out a place from your existing hood to install the new scoop.

Many people choose to go with the fiberglass hood scoops in either the simulation type hood scoop or the performance hood scoop. The fiberglass hood scoops are very nice although you will want to consider what the hood of your car is made out of before purchasing a hood scoop. If you have a fiberglass hood then a fiberglass hood scoop is your best option. If you have a metal hood then you may have to take other precautions before installing a fiberglass hood scoop. Fiberglass hood scoops will not adhere to a steel hood so this must be taken into consideration. Fiberglass hood scoops are a little more expensive than plastic styles however hood scoops are generally an inexpensive way of adding real style to your car.

Whether you choose to use a simulation add-on style hood scoop or a performance style hood scoop the end results should be pleasing to the eye. Adding a hood scoop to your muscle or race car gives it the extra touch of having power and speed. Hood scoops can make a dramatic difference in the way your car looks and once the hood scoop is painted to match your car you will be surprised at just how amazing your car looks.
