Default Fake hood scoop?

My wife wants me to add a phony adhesive hood scoop to our Cruiser and even bought a nice smaller sized kind of squared one at Auto Zone. It doesn't look terrible setting there and I'm not opposed to the idea. Anyone have one?
Careful, I bruise easily.

There is a huge picture gallery on here. Also they have one on pt people on Facebook. Bound to see something similar on somebody's. I will keep my tastes to myself. You bought it, you decide what you like.

Actually, imo, you should take a photo of it lying on the hood and compare it to the following pictures:









Personally, not going to voice my opinion about these. Don't want to offend or insult anyone.

Post a picture of the scoop and/or it setting on your hood. Heck I will give you an IMO response!!

I played with this idea last year, but decided on something else. Good thing when I posted it I got the honest opinions of the members....
Needless to say even if I liked it no way was it going on the PT after that!

I guess I forgot to tell you I don't like the flat black on the bottom of the bumpers.

Looks like we're going for it. I ordered the Cool Vanilla paint from AutomotiveTouchup.com and scoop will be painted to match the car before being installed. BTW, the scoop is smaller and more squared than those posted. If we decide against later, a hair dryer and fine fishing line will remove it. Will post photo in a week or so.

Well, it's done. Scoop is on, as well as hood portholes, and chromed pillar covers. Hey, I'm nearly 63. All I have to do is impress myself. Couple new photos added to my gallery.
