Default Lund Hood Scoops

My uncle used to have a 2002 Dodge Durango but was in accident with other vehicle so it is totaled. He just bought them black lund hood scoops and don't want to throw them away so he want to give it to me for my Durango. It is for free from him so I might just go ahead and put it on. How hard is it to put it on the hood?

Pretty simple, just paint them to match your truck color and then they apply with 3M automotive tape.

Position them on your hood, then outline them with masking tape. Then you will know where they go again when you pull them up to peel the protective later from the sticky tape.

This assumes that these have not been installed previously.

If they have been installed, it can still work to position them on the hood and guide you for after you put the two-sided tape on them before you install them.

Does this make sense? It's late and I may be a little loopy as my fingers smell of latex....... Because of filling 250+ Water balloons for an epic "WBF" tomorrow :-)

On another Durango forum someone posted about matching paint for Patriot Blue, and they linked this website Automotivetouchup.com

They said it took about a week to get a spray can, but it matched well.

My uncle want to put it on tomorrow before he head back home and auto parts stores here don't have that paint in stock. Can I just install it on there now and paint it later? I think my uncle want to see it in person before he leave.

most napa auto parts can match your paint better to paint fisrt as it will cost more to paint once installed. I hope he can wait and take pictures of it later to be satisfied. You will save alot of cash to paint first. otherwise paint it black it may look ok with contrast to your current color. if need it done fast.

Napa here where I live said that I can get the color but will have to wait until Friday to get one. Can I install it now and just cover the hood and window to paint it this weekend?

Yes you can it is just harder to paint it on the hood compared to before installing. You can mask off the area around it and anything your overspray may hit. I have done it that way with other cars, but next time I will paint first reason being you can move it and more evenly coat it. keep us posted to what you do. also dont forget a can of clear coat once you have a good coat of paint you can apply clear to give it great finish.

AAAAHHHHH.
Don't have clue punctuation was proper spell for me. Drive nuts me know not how type proper sentences when easy so do.
Find read hard when people try not show intelligence.

Sorry but it is true. Do you speak the way you type?
I'd imagine it would be difficult to understand you if you spoke that way.
Am I being an ***? Yes. I am. But I am also just trying to help you sound more intelligent than you are letting on by your terrible typing.
Let me geuss. Your in your twentys and school let you get away with it and you text in slang and short, hence you never learned proper sentences or punctuation.
Imagine speaking to a prospective employer like that.
Would you get a job?
Probably. Bottom pay and grunt labour where your speech is not required. Heres a shovel Johnny.

Hope scoop fit from uncle ok and paint come well out for you.

Ever consider that what you read might have been "auto-corrected"?

You are correct in that there is no excuse for not proofreading, but there is no need to post your comments this way. It could have been written with a little more politeness.

My Dakota was the same coloir as your Durango. I purchased my paint from Imatchpaint.com (NMB Paint sales). The use professional quality automotive finishe paint (Dupont), plus they sell a two-part clear coat that is as good as it gets for rattle can paint.

I installed a hood scoop on mine. As previously stated, I masked the area off where the 3-m tape would be sticking to and I roughed it up with a scotchbrite pad to give some more adhesion. I painted mine off the truck. Thats a no brainer. No masking of body parts.

Yeah I am deaf and people do have hard time understanding me. English classes and speech were the hardest classes in school for me but I did graduated. I do work part-time 5 days clean shop, offices, and delivery parts. Only can work 14-18 hours a week. So I don't blame you for being an *** but I can't help it that my typing isn't good.

You are so right. But I was being polite. Yes, I am an ***.
But I try to at least help people understand they are sounding dumber than they probably really are.
Forgive my rudeness. I really was trying to be polite.
I know I could have been a real dink. But that doesn't help at all.

That ok. I just want to let you know that my typing and talk isn't the greatest. You just give your options on what you think.

stick on scoops are always tricky to do w/o them coming out looking tacky, definitely have to paint before you install, and be carefull that they go on well, put the time in and they will look fine, rush it and you will have problems.

Scoops look good. But at least make them functional.
