    There should be no gaps along the sides. The tricky part is at the rear - where it goes over the peak of the hood. My original KB scoop fits that peak very well with just a very small gap. My scoop has 8 holes for bolts, 4 on each side. I mount mine with 10-32 stainless bolts.

    The two bolts in the back on eather side of the peak are a pain, as there is not much room between the top of the scoop and the bolt holes. You have to get the perfect size bolt to fit in there.

    We have two scoops that we are currently using to get the correct fitment of the scoops coming out of the mold.

    You're to young to know...but that brings back memories of Kenne-Bell!

    I'm still in for one even though I have an nos one sitting here.

    As far as the fitment of the "flange" to the hood, it looks as good as the steal Buick made scoop. It would be nice to see it a little thicker though, or with a lip around the opening like Buicks original.

    The Stage 2 scoop mold is in the process of being modified for a better fit and to allow for an easier and higher quality install to a hood. The back lip just wasn't coming out right to match an actual hood, so we're having a friend in the area take a hood over for the fiberglass guy to use as a reference for the corrections. I don't want to sell you guys a low quality part that doesn't fit right and looks poorly made.
