    From what I can tell the Pass side is about right, but yea the driver side is little outa whack, just need to dress it off with a block and some 80 grit. Thats just Fiberglass but fortunately it responds well to grinders and such when it needs to be modified.

    I called VFN and their shipping and crate fees would have been almost $100.00 alone.
    TA charged $40.00 shipping

    I did not pay anywhere near that amount for shipping when I bought scoop from VFN last spring. Closer to $20. It just came in a cardboard box with foam peanuts in it. It looks fine, just don't care for the way it mounts with the randomly placed metal tabs fiberglassed into it.

    Are these currently in stock?
    Looks like there was some supply/quality issues.
    ...only ever saw a price of "about $100.00"

    Adam,
    10 in stock right now.
    TA 9099 $99

    After the first run I had the glass company redo the mounting surface. Bruce Kent and Harrison were able to get a Skylark hood over to the shop. They re-did the mold so it would lay much flatter to the hood than the KB scoop did. I also had them thicken up the flange so it could be drilled and tapped to bolt the scoop down. I would install Heli-coils if I were to do one. That was my idea anyway. Good thing is, they are available again.
