Default Cooper scooper in the nose?

Has anyone tried it yet? I know some have put it in the hood. I need more air flow and instead of just cutting an unfinished looking hole I think this would look much better.

Brain, use your mad PS skills.

I haven't tried it, since the cut in my nose was made before I got the cooper scooper. But, I have mine out of the hood right now preparing for paint and set it in the opening I have to check it for you. The contour looks like it should fit okay, and the nose is flexible enough to conform if its not perfect.

The garage is pretty cramped, and unheated. If i open the door to make more room then the garage is the same 36 degrees it is outside. What are you looking for? I will be pulling it out tomorrow to load on the trailer for the event Sunday.

Holy dogshit- Hustler was polite, and didn't even mention spanking his little sister or how much he can squat.

Sure he's polite. He wants the pics put up. Once the 1st pics are up then we get the "can you send a pic of that scoop between your dwarf girlfriends thighs while you give her the dirty sanchez?"

is the angle of the scooper parallel to the groud...essentially, does it look like it belongs on the miata? I really want to run it with the oil cooler behind it.

Recall that the scoop changed size/shape in 2007, IIRC.
