Did you paint the whole car at once or did you paint the scoop later. I am concerned about paint matching and your car looks like it may be the same color as mine. My paint code is TT1. Can't seem to find it in a 64. I think in 65 it is called Dark Red Poly.
Don’t know about any really bad stuff from Larry @ Sled City, but he does tend to say his is ‘the best’ out there. I did buy a T/A hood w/scoop for my ‘73 Challenger (T/A tribute) from AAR & I can tell you it is SECOND TO NONE! Their quality, at least for me & my T/A hood & scoop, is absolutely TOPS! The gel coat looks like it’s already painted, clear coated, & beautiful! I’ll probably buy my Hemi scoop from AAR too, although I REALLY want a USED SCOOP since I’m gonna Just cut a ‘hole’ in it for my injection stacks to stick thru.I also did not cut the hood, Swapped it for "stuff" to a fellow B-Owner. This one weighs only 19 lbs. Avatar shot is same car and actual color, the one attached is just more of a frontal view copied from a scanned picture. As for Sled City I had to file with the Better Business Bureau about them. With out any satisfaction. Beware!

Agree!!!!! Plus if ya add hood pins you can drop a bunch of weight ( hood,hinges, latch "stuuf" ) all heavy. Mine is a replacement one piece hood, composite NOT fiberglass, came all molded as one piece. Total weight 19 lbs.I have no problem with scoops on these cars, i think they look great, but just please dont cut up a nice steel hood! Get a whole glass hood from sled city , or whomever, with a scoop on it. I cut up a nice 62 hood for a scoop, and regret it every day. I think you will get a similar opinion from others here.
Mine is Very Effective. So much so that at the top end of the quarter approaching 130MPH it was getting enough pressure in it to lift itself up in the center. I pulled it off and had to cut a minor amount out of the rear corners to let some air escape. If we are caught in the rain on the street I have an old Summit Racing plastic sign I trimmed and glued closed cell foam to and just pop it into the opening of the scoop. Car now breaths as normal. Air Cleaner assemble is a K & N extreme, 16 inch Dia. 3 inches tall. And when on top of the 1050 with the hi-rise intake it actually sits up in the scoop area. As you can tell, it's not stock. Most people are not fans of the FM3 paint anyway, but wife and I think the changed color on the hood and in rear trunk panel help soften it up. The bright color is actual, The other is a _hitty picture I took. Bumpers are plastic weigh 3 lbs. eachNot planning on making the hood functional, I understand they aren't very effective in any case so no plans to cut an intake hole. If I do it, it would be a bolt on so if the car ever went back stock it would be an easy fix. Body color may be an option but I kinda like the late 60's early 70's look with blacked out scoops.
