Yeah, it's meant to be a 'shut' line, only on the F4. From memory neither the Sport or the PL30 had them.

I like the vent scoops. One of those things I keep thinking I will do but at the same time it's one more thing to do.

Just playing with it.
Here's what I got so far. Can't have it sweep much farther forward because the opening will get narrower

I like the front of it. What do you think about sweeping the back of it following the body lines a little farther, elongating the piece a bit. That way it's not blended in but follows the lines of the car and looks like it was designed for a sterling. Though the more I look at it I think even now it fits better then the big eagle scoops. The color difference doesn't help.

Just a though I could be way off base. You've got the vision.

Right now I have it wrapped around the opening(sort of), if I take it farther back it wouldn't direct the air into the opening that well.

The shape of this is a lower,slimmer profile than some that I've seen and it doesn't look like a box stuck on top like some do. Just my opinion.

Well I guess I should make another one for the other side.

Digging it Brett. Always have loved the elephant ears on the Eureka's, this makes those and adds a bit more sleekness. Personally I would take the bottom edge of the "scoop" and bring it so it mirrors the curve of the body line just under it. Depth of the scoop is spot on.

Nicely done and I know what a pig it must have been to get it to fit the multiple curves on the body.

I'm not going to mess with it much more.

I'll build one for the other side and then make the molds for them.

I was asked if I would consider making an extra set and yes I would consider it. Not sure what the cost would be at this point.

Heres a picture of how close it follows the lines of the existing port

Don't blame you about making more changes Brett. Scoops do look really nice.
