      Thank you.
      Yes, there are several firms who sell them but to just order one and ship to Sweden just to discover like with the one I have from Unlimited, that has a dip in the scoop, is not fun at all.
      I need to see what is out there prior to ordering.

      Same problem here - bought glass fenders and a hood from VFN - utter garbage - phoned to talk to someone about it and all I got was crickets - complete waste of money. Shipping was damn near as much as the parts and I had to wait almost 2 months for them to be made and almost a month for delivery to Canada .I do not recommend VFN to anyone.

        Sorry I don't have a picture of the back side, if I have time this week-end I can take a picture. Here is pictures of a 5 inch scoop and 4 inch scoop.

        Yes, but you got the scoop on hood complete from Glasstek? Pic in post #5
        These scoops look good though.
        Thank you.

        Yes I bought the complete hood, but the scoops in the pictures above are the same as my hood, my hood is the 4 inch scoop. I just used the pictures as a reference.

          The absolute "best" hood available today for a '68 A Body Hemi car is from Synergy Composites. They aren't cheap but they look amazingly straight and fit better than anything else on the market today including OE panels.

          I hope this helps.

          See if I can get in contact on FB...

            I got an AAR superstock hood scoop and it was very nice. Already had the mounting studs in it so all I had to do was make a template and drill to mount it on my steel hood.

            No, not sure. He did have a L023 hood which was a nice piece. Not sure about BO hood. Guess best to give him a call.

            Yes I´m sure what he offers is as correct as it gets. What I´m trying to figure out, is if anyone else offers a good repop for a little less...
            Like I say is twice the price when it´s home in my garage :(

            Just call and ask for Tim. He'll hook you up.

            I've used Glasstek, AAR, and a few others. Synergy is by far the best quality out there.

              And just an FYI - their fenders are a bolt on, scuff, prime and paint. They fit that good!!!

                Here a picture of my hood from the back. This is the same hood that you saw in primer, it's in satin black now. I hope this is what you were looking for.

                Yes that hood do look very nice. What I meant was inside though, but still good to see how well done the scoop is molded to the hood.
                If it´s possible to get a shot of inside (we actually have the difference in Sweden as well) I wont bother you no more…
                A big thank you.
