Well, we finally got the MTF scoops on and reinstalled the doors. What a disappointment. I should have known that you cannot glue something on top of the quarter and then have it meet flush with the door. Has anybody else installed these scoops and had better luck. If so do you have photos as they might look better with paint on them. At this point in time I am ready to yank them off and go back to the stock look. What a disappointment!
If you want them to sit flush, you have to move them back about 1/2 - 3/4 of an inch and blend them. I wanted mine to sit up, so I flushed them with the doors. Head over to the MTF forums for more info.
Looking at what you have there on a computer (I looked at them on a phone last night) I would say your easiest course of action is to add a little filler to the door and blend towards the fender. You probably don't want to do that, but the other options is like I stated above, rip them off, move them back 3/4 of an inch and blend towards the door.
I won't attempt to bore you with all the details but we have spent many hours attempting to make these scoops work. Three sides look great but the door edge just plain doesn't fit. I am now going to remove them and go back to original. If anybody has installed these and been happy with the results please post some photos. This looked like a good product but the end results haven't borne this out for us. Few hundred bucks down the tube.
The scoops are very simple to install, In my video I show how you need to shave the leading edge 3/4 of a inch, then you are blending to the edge of the door. By doing that it won't require any filler on the door. If you were having any problems with the install you could have called any time. Rich.
