Default Where can I find upper side scoops like many have on the eagle ss

I really like the late 70's Lamborghini look of the eagle ss upper scopes. Any idea where to find a set? Are they just universal scoops?

Here are a couple of scoops. Not quite like the eagle and I am sure any of them will need slightly modified. The first one is a hood scoop from a 70 Dodge Dart Demon. The second is a scoop that covers the side window on a fiero. The last one is a side scoop for a shelby mustang. This is off the car from gone in 60 seconds "Eleanor".

The Eureka in Australia had those as well. You might want to sign up at their forum Purvis Eureka Car Club of Australia and see if anyone has a spare set. Probably wouldn't be too hard to fabricate using a cardboard template, though..

Yup, there were a standard option from the second model onwards. They don't often come up for sale second hand though. I should point out, just like the rest of the car, they tend to be asymmetrical, that is, one is bigger than the other (that's what she said! lol). That said however, one of the Eureka club members made molds, and improved upon the design. Originally their is just lip on the inside of the intake that you can use to bolt/screw/tape it to the body work. What he's done is made it into a two part design (I think I remember that correctly). There's a base plate that will fit into the 'scolloped' intake in the body tub, and the top half which you can fasten to the base plate. That means that the new air intake will fit into the existing intake, which you can then secure through the body work inside the original air intake, or even by using something like a section of pvc pipe and securing that to the new air intake so you don't have to drill/screw through the body tub. Also, The fit to the top of the body tub is much cleaner/smoother, and would help channel more air into the body tub to be ducted to where ever you want/need it.

Another thing to point out, shipping between Oz and the rest of the Known World isn't cheap. As a (poor) example, I'm getting a new fuel sender shipped out from the US of A, and that set me back $27 USD for the shipping alone.

If interested, I can try get in contact with the member who made the redesigned 'elephant ear' intakes. He doesn't tend to post a lot on the forums, and so it can take a while to get a set of intakes made up.

I act as the International contact point for the car club anyway, so I don't mind doing the 'footwork' on this side of the pond.

Thanks Rick. Those eureka ones are exactly what I wanted but I didn't know they made those. Now I just need to find a set.

P.s. I chose this picture for the car!

Sorry you posted while I was exploring the Eureka site. Those scopes are awesome. If you don't mind asking that member what he would want to make a set that would be much appreciated. I really think those scoops with the side skirts I'm putting on the sebring would give the car a great Lamborghini / ferrari look.

Thanks
Brian

Just as well the guys came up with options as the scoops on the SS are part of the car not an add on. From new they are blanked off and most leave them that way but mine are right to engine fan intake, left to oil cooler fan. same for the 'gills' on the lower nose which I have used for DRLs.
