Anyone with experience with the scoops. How much fitting is required. Did the body shop do the fitting before painting. What kind of cost can i expect for painting of both side and rear window scoops.

thanks

Yes I have experience and have a set that I am looking to sale. I have them on my car at this time. I am looking at something else to put on. Theres is nothing wrong with them and they are painted Black. To change color all is needed is to wet sand the clear reshoot the color then clear coat them.

how was the prep and install on scoops. How do you remove them once they affixed. Heat

Well, it was fairly easy alittle sanding and primer filler and sanding then paint. Yes I am going to apply alittle heat to the doubled sided tape.

the instructions talk about final fitment before painting. did you have to do much. I put the raw unit up to the car they seem to fit nice out of the box.

The lower side scoops require drilling and upper are 3D carbon which require tape.

I would suggest not drilling any holes to install the side scoops. Mine are Ford side scoops, the same as on the Calf. special, and I used only the included double sided tape for the install. My body shop tech said the tape will hold them on without any problems and his years of experience proved true. They have been on for plus 6 months and two trips to Fla. He felt that if for some reason I wanted to go back to the stock look, I could do so without an issue of covering holes. Bottom line, don't bother drilling holes!
