hood scoop seals
#1
I just finished fresh paint on my hood. Before installing. I am guessing whether the scoop inserts were somehow sealed to prevent water leakage into engine compartment. Does anybody know ?

Are you talking about the inside of the Scoop or around the edge of the scoop. The inside of the scoop does have a cover if you are not using the ram air system. There is not seal for around the edge of the scoop though.

Thanks, I am talking about the aluminum molding to hood, not plastic inserts. So if I understand no seal was used around it, right ?

No seal / or gaskets.

There is a 1 inch X 1/4 inch foam that is on it I assume for vibration and paint chipping.

Hmm, thats on the original only. I do not have that on my repro but mine is all one piece so it would not need it.

You may want to add it. Hell it's easy enough to install just in case.

Hey guys, I used hot glue gun to install my plastic inserts grill and one fell out. I guess I should've used screws. Anybody has an extra one lying around? Thanks,

Markmel, just so you know that is not an original screw
It is close but should not be self taping
