Hi,
Just wondering for anyone who bought a hoodscoop from Wayne....What do you use to get the mesh to stick to the inside of the scoop? And I went to have it installed and the guy said he had no idea how to put it on.. :confused: I was going to silkaflex it but now i want to screw it in....i think you just have to use the 3 points underneath right?

thank u,
Carolyne

I don't know who Wayne is, however, if you're talking about the trianglular hood scoop from Visteon like most are, the screen mesh attaches easily.

Flip it over upside-down and place the mesh so the 3 holes line up with the 3 plastic stems sticking up. Push the grills holes over the stems and using a soldering gun, heat them up and push them down so the plastic mushrooms over the holes. This is called heat-staking.

or you could just go to home depot and buy some speed-nuts...put the mesh over the plastic stems and put some speed nuts on the stems. If you don't have the plastic stems, there's plenty of adhesives out there you could use.

hot glue!!! that's what i used to hold in all of the mesh on my dragon z bumper. the mesh is still holding as strong as the day i installed it. plus hot glue is cheap and quick to use.

wow hot glue eh? Something as simple as that and I've been killing myself on how to hold the mesh onto my No Limit Grill...think it'll work on that? Right now I've got ties holding it onto the grill.

you seriously wouldn't believe that i used hot glue on my car unless you looked behind the bumper. whenever i told people about it, they were like 'ya right'. then they seen it and they were in shock. hot glue is the best:thumbsup:
