Any PhotoChoppers?

Need these blended. Doing a hood prototype for a manufacturer and trying to get an idea of how I wanna do this.

These are test fit #1. Not sure if I like it this way or if I wanna move the cowl forward a bit to completely cover the center dip in the hood....










Of course, the scoop is plastic, so once its painted and taped down, they'll be able to make a fiberglass mould without the big seams.

EDIT: The design has the big cowl in the center and a pair of louvers on the sides like the 5.9 LTD (except further back). If anybody has any input, shoot, and I'll see what kinds of changes I can make.

Re: Any PhotoChoppers?

Those projector headlights are messing up the flow of your jeep. You should pass them down to me... LOL But Downstate or FatherPaul should be able to hook you up.

Re: Any PhotoChoppers?

Hey man is that a hood scoop that attatches with 3M tape? If so where did you find that at? Who makes it?

Yes, it is. I got it from Summit Racing. They make it.

Re: Any PhotoChoppers?

Looks like crap.. it needs to be bigger, if you can do something like the viper hood, without the viper cut outs, and in full Carbon fiber, you can add me to the group buy list... I just want a cowl hood, is that too much to ask for?

Re: Any PhotoChoppers?

I didn't see any bigger ones. This is the biggest plastic one I could find. Fiberglass is wider, but anything thats wider is also like 2 feet longer, which won't fit our hoods.

I really wanted to find aluminum so I could weld it on, but not a single manufacturer makes an aluminum cowl scoop. Steel is available, but I'm not willing to use an aftermarket steel hood to be able to use one. Aftermarket body parts rarely fit perfectly, so I'd rather not have a mould made off one.

IDK if it looks like crap...IMO it looks kinda sweet...I guess it could be a little wider, but if you put it on I don't think you would be disappointed.

Re: Any PhotoChoppers?

I dont want to come off as an ass or knocking your idea. I really want a plain cowl hood, but if it could be wider from at least nozzle to nozzle and larger like covering the middle indent too

Re: Any PhotoChoppers?



How about that? Its just a quick 2 minute job of what was already posted because I am waiting for a CD to download...

I like it.... Also, I am not knocking your idea of your small hood scoop one. I think its awesome people are finding a niche for the jeeps to do this to them, but I wouldnt buy it because of the smallness, And i have been asking for a 3-4inch cowl forever...

Re: Any PhotoChoppers?

That works too. Find one and I'd do it. They don't seem to be available.

Not sure about 3-4" high though. That would block the view out the front.

Chad aka Odvious is making one. He announced that after the Venom hood is complete, these will be available as well (in both carbon Fiber and fiberglass).
