    Default Interest in Kenne Bell Stage 2 Hood Scoops?

    I have obtained the rights to produce Kenne Bell's Stage 2 hood scoops using the original tooling. If I were to have a run of scoops made, how many people would be interested? I haven't called yet for pricing or anything, just trying to gauge preliminary interest.


    EDIT: This is my 1,111-th post lol.

    I have a nice hood just waiting for one! Depends on price, though. Not looking to break the bank for one. I really don't think you can loose on this one, stamping is cheap, it's not a complicated part to make, so price should be reasonable. Get some pricing and do the numbers, I think you will get more interest with a price tag...
    No, its not a chevy motor

    It would have to be priced right. If you "sticker shock" everyone, it will be a waste of your time.

    If this goes through, you should try to make them a bit more heavy-duty. A couple extra layers of mat couldn't hurt.

    I know VFN's aren't the greatest, and they're pretty thin. I'd be willing to bet people would pay a little extra for a part that is built a little better.

    *Sniff*, I've been following this thread . . . . *hopin'*

    Doesn't anybody have a picture of these scoops? Lots of you old timers know exactly that this item is but . . . . . what about us newcomers?

    At first, I couldn't imagine any interest in such a thing, but as I keep watching things on this forum . . . . now I'm not so sure!

    It turns out that would not be my cup of tea, but the only way I could have known is indeed to see an example in action. So I do appreciate the info!

    I had lost the phone number to the guy, but get it from Jim Bell when stopped by to visit last week. I called the man up and he said he'll work out pricing and give me a call back, so hopefully I'll know sometime next week and then can get a sample sometime after that.
