    Hi.

    Installing the lower scoops on 67 Shelby restomod. Any info on locating the scoops?

    I initially installed even with the edge of the door opening...but looking on the web they seem to be set back from the door opening edge about 1/2". Any info out there?

    Thanks for the pictures Rusty...I have read almost all your build threads...VERY nice work.
    If I ever win the lottery I will bring my car to you.

    Is the opening of the scoop basically even with the door opening (Your side picture appears that way)? ....or should it back off the door opening about a 1/4" or 1/2"?
