You will have to find a set of Mecham scoops which are hard to find. They look like this:


Or buy the Archie rocker panels that have a wide scoop:

The Mecham scoops look very nice and it's the type that I want
The Archie rocker / scoops are great but not what I am wanting for this car

Yeah HARD pass on that. When they come up, they're usually in the $500 range. Oh, and yes, I mean for the original ones, not the fiberglass knock-offs. I've bought two sets now, the first was from Eric Mecham, and the last was a little over a year ago off a guy in one of the FB groups. They're not THAT rare, but you do have to act quick when they come up for sale.

Another smaller option is scoops off a Fiat X1/9 , which go onto your existing panel rather than replacing it. They're about the same size as factory one, only longer, and can be had for both left and right sides.

Unfortunately you'll have to find a junkyard or purchase them used online. Here's a set from the U.K

I got mine on Ebay. Start with a search for like "Fiat X1/9 scoop." eg https://www.ebay.com/itm/Vi...0:g:h9YAAOSw~jJchcAI

Note they are "sided", ie left is different than right. I was fortunate to find a set of both sides, but you may have to get one of each from different sellers. Or just do the one ..shrug..

Also easier if you have something like the Rodney Dickman cold air intake; in any event, expect to do a little fiddling with your plumbing to install, along with cutting the body. But that's to be expected.

Thanks

I pulled the trigger and bought a pair of Fiat X1/9 scoops from a company in Ohio. I have to have them in my hands to decide if I want to use them. I haven't had any luck in finding anything I like, new or used. I started mocking up some scoops using an extra pair of rear quarter panels and I got a shape that I like. I have done fiberglass work in the past and got kinda excited about the project. Almost ordered material to get it done but I hesitated before I hit the "Place Order" button. I think I am getting to old, tired or just lazy. (Maybe all 3) I will see where this road leads me.

Thanks for the help
