fiberglass rear scoop installation
Posted by: sweet66monza ()

I got the rear scoop behind the back window of my dads car ready for paint, which was a major PITA because of such poor fit. I didnt want to glass it in so if anything happened to it, it could be easily removed. What would be best to put between it and the tops of the rear fenders to prevent it from eating all the paint away? thanks

There are also three screws going into the top of each fender but i dont have pics with them all in place

I would use a 3M body putty caulking

Where each bolt is place a rubber washer under the scoop.

I think it would look neater with a tiny stainless carriage bolt with a washer and nut installed on the underside.

the only reason it is screwed in with stainless sheet metal screws is because the front screws are impossible to reach from the underside. I just want something to give it a clean look where it met the body.

I would ditch the screws and run 3M two sided tape. It will bond metal, plastic, fiberglass and rubber, painted or not. It is what is used on most modern trim, body side moldings and emblems. it is very tough stuff.

I second The 3M double sided tape to protect the paint and prevent rubbing. However I would still use some sort of mechanical fastener. That part is designed to catch air unlike the flat body side moldings and emblems that are typically held on with the tape.
