Hi There,
As (to mine opinion) the offerd airscoops are far to expensive and I was looking for a "Saterday afternoon challenge", I created my own airscoops :7:

And I must admid, they are not looking so bad.
Maybe this is helpful to anyone of you.
It took me in total: 1 Saterday afternoon, and roughly 20 Euros (for alu sheet, paint and decals (Ebay))

Step 1:
By paper I made a fitting model how it should look like, en fit in the car.
This step took most time, as it was trial and error before I had the correct dimensions (see picture with all dimensions on it)

Step 2
Copy the Paper model to the alu sheet and cut out the pieces

step 3
Cut and bent the alu sheet in correct shape.
Remark: try fitting it before poprivet the parts !

Step 4
Poprivet the sides to eachother

Step 5
Painting the parts
I used several layers of paint, to have good coverage

step 6
Finish with decal and clear coat (several layers)

step 7
Mounting the parts in the car

Lol I know, don't know why it was upside down but I fixed it. Also don't mind the dirty car, winter is a B out here and I drive as often as weather permits.

Nice job, I noticed on the picture that you mount them up side down...:grinyes:
Now the fitting should be ok !!
Enjoy !!!!
