I have seen really nice Rear Deck Lid Scoops on Fieros but each time I have asked about them I was told they where from a Mustang but didn't recall the year. What years have you been using? Pics?

Thanks

The hood scoop from the Fox body Mustang is probably the one you're talking about. That seems to be the most popular.

"thadriver" sells a Mustang style scoop that is specifically sized (a bit shorter front to back) to fit the Fiero.

Look under "decklids, scoops, and louvers".

I used Paul`s on my 86 but someone gave me a Mustang scoop and I think it will look good too.

Thank you gentlemen. I just emailed Paul. I am hoping he can help me possibly design something custom.

The description on his website says it is a mold in scoop. You could likely convert it to be bolt on with some work.

I molded mine in but you could fiberglass some studs onto the inside ledge to make it a bolt on.

Here, this is picture of my car, before I owned it but who's checking



This is a bolt on set up. You end up with a slight gap that a bonded one will not have and there are the bolts to deal with under the trunk lid.

You didn't mention what scoop it is. Is that a Fox Body Mustang scoop?

That one must be a Mustang scoop because it`s longer.
Here is one of Paul`s that was on my car.

I did not have it installed but I was told it is a mustang scoop. It was on the car when I got it. One of these days I am going to put some screen in the back and open up some vents to the engine under it. But that is awhile off, the car is currently in storage while I am working in Taiwan.

I have Paul's scoop. It has a ledge around the inside, that seems like it would allow for the installation of studs.

This was a Mustang scoop, that was shortened slightly, on the front edge.


And another Mustang scoop.

Are they for looks only, or are they actually open to allow hot air to escape?

If open, where does water run off to in the engine bay?

I had a hole cut in my decklid but it was far enough back from the rear edge that the water ran towards the back of the car and didn`t go into the hole.

Any scoop can be made into a bolt on. All it takes is fiberglassing some bolts on the bottom side. I prefer bolt ons as opposed to molded in ones because 9 times out of 10, due to varying thicknesses, it will swell or crack at the joint sooner or later.

If you going to drill holes to bolt it on you may as well mold it on it isn't like you can just unbolt it and all is good again.

You can put plugs in the holes if you remove it. You have to saw or rip off a molded one or buy a new decklid. Bolted on ones wont crack and bubble after a year. Besides, you still have to bolt or screw it on to mold it in.

Looks like a Boss 429 scoop to me, though from what I gathered, it appears some '79-'82 Mustangs used a similar "retro" lower profile scoop. I also know later SN-95 GT's also came with a non-functional Boss 429 style scoop as well. That said, I appreciate the fact that a Mustang style scoop is being offered for the Fiero with no modification needed. I always liked the look it adds to our cars.

I guess I was one of the lucky ones, or used good materials.
My "Camaro" type spoiler and "Pauls" mustang parts were molded on my car right up to the time it burned, which was two years and there was never even a slight crack where the decklid and fiberglass part joined.
I fiberglassed the parts on with a good resin and cloth and then used Evercoat filler, both made to work with SMC.
I really thought they might develop soem small cracks but they never did.

Ill agree sometimes people are just lucky. Years ago I fixed the lower quarter panels behind the rear wheels of a 55 Ford for a friend. He didnt want to weld on it so we just glued on some screen and bondoed it up and painted it. It still looked fine 4 years later when he sold it. Ive had other rust holes (like my minivan) I duraglassed, filled and painted that popped back up in less than a month. Its just a beater so not worth time to do more.

I took a bolt on one that came from who knows what originally, I think I saw something similar on an older Dodge truck.
I used a couple of the bolts but bonded it on as well. Looks pretty slick with the spoiler on. Almost hides it.
