Hood Scoop Adhesive?

Is anyone familiar with a 3M adhesive tape that aftermarket hood scoops are attached with? If so, what is it called and is it any good?

If not, any other adhesive anyone would recommend...painted scoop to painted hood?

Thanks,

Jerry

Why not just pop rivet it in place as per the originals? Or, of course, you could epoxy it in place and fair it out to look like part of the hood.
Never heard of taping one in place...

3M VHB (Very High Bond) tape is what you want...

Thanks Mark.

BS, That is an excellent point, however I made a mistake that cost me the alignment of the holes I drilled. It is a long story but the advice I would give is; DO NOT assume because you align your scoop to the hood squarely, that the hood itself is aligned at all with the body. My stripe lines looked great on the hood, scoop, cowl, etc, but they in turn were not lined up with the rear deck center stripe unless I made some adjustments. 3 of us worked on this for close to 2 hours and I finally conceded to move the scoop since I could not do any better. It was a low moment in the paint booth and it is hard to admit on this forum but hey, it is what it is and I need to move ahead.

I read a post from SRP that he bonds the scoops to the hood and then glues the rivets in the holes. They are non-functional rivets in his case. That is the line I'm going down now but I don't want the embarrassment of my scoop flying off the car, or fasteners falling off. This is not where I wanted to be at this time and I'm really dissapointed that all my careful measurements of the hood and scoop were in vain in the big picture of striping the whole car. Who would have thought? At first I thought it was my buck but we were able to eliminate that as the cause. I'm not necessarilly sold on the tape as I want it as tight to the hood as possible. I'd really like some kind of panel adhesive but I have no experience with any of them. Any other suggestions are welcome.

Thanks, Jerry

The problem with VHB tape is that it's about $100 a roll and 1/16th" thick which will leave a gap between the scoop and hood. Personally, I think 2-part epoxy would be your best choice ...travis

Okay, got ya'-

I've heard great things about the VHB tape Mark suggested but don't have any experience with it. Easy enough to test it out on a part I guess before committing to final placement of the scoop.
Good luck, if we didn't make mistakes we'd never learn- right?

You can get the VHB in smaller rolls. The scoop's edge should conceal it. If not then I would use 3M's Panel Bond. It requires a special heated caulking gun, but you can take the hood and scoop to a body shop and have them bond it on for you...

Yikes... 1/16" and the money are both what I didn't want to hear. I like the epoxy idea but I wonder if there is one that would remain just a tad flexible (like a soft-crack candy). I can envision regular epoxy popping off for some reason.... Something like this must have happened to me once that I'm so nervous. Oh yeah, I have had epoxy failures on giant scale warbirds. That was ugly!

Take a look at 3M Structural Adhesive. Part number 08101. It's a two part adhesive, and usually found in professional auto paint and body supply stores. John

Sorry about the scoop. I take it you have holes drilled in the scoop and the hood already? If so, and as an alternative to the glue or tape approach, you could use the scoop holes as a template to drill new holes in the hood. The old hood holes could be covered with a horse-shoe shaped "scoop mounting flange" that you could make out of heavy aluminum or some other rigid material for the underside of the hood. If the old and new holes are close enough, a flange could cover them and maybe wouldn't look bad at all. Just a thought.

Jerry,

I have the 3M panel Bond adhesive and gun. I think the part number is 0817 or 0816. I used it to bond the aluminum to the inside of the trunk panel. I can ship it to you, use what you need and ship it back.
