Got bored... Making an intake scoop.

Just finished the template. Probably start metal work in a few days... not sure if I want to weld it or bend it in a brake...

It would make better use as a sun shade. Yes. Do it.

I'm a visual kind of guy. Perhaps a sketch of where this goes? Read the title and though you were duplicating BeMyWhip's hood scoop. Now I think you are designing something for underneath the car. Perhaps a photo of the cardboard in place on the car would help.

Can't believe this many people are clueless as to what this is/what it does...lol

Good on you, OP. I'd like to see this once it's done. Don't let it become a hack-job!

My advice is to try and make it as stock looking as you can. If you can't do I would not move forward with the project.
