Removing stick on hood scoop

So I went to remove the stick on hood scoop the guy that had my truck before me put on and turns out he drilled through the hood with about a 10mm bit and used bolts and double sided tape to hold it on. Seriously? I was wondering what's the best way to seal those holes or should I just say f it and get a new hood? Any help is appreciated.

You could patch them but I think a new hood would be easier and cheaper in the long run.

with yours being a thunderbolt, that's how the hood scoop is supposed to be attached.

Well it's not really a thunderbolt. The guy that had it before me converted it to a thunderbolt. It was just a regular ranger. It's single cab and stepside. All the thunderbolts I believe were ext cab and and whatnot. But I def know he converted it because the stickers on the side have came off and there's holes behind them where the original ranger decal was

I would patch them with something (bondo?) and then touch them up black. If you do a good job you shouldn't even notice.

Being a small hole you could patch them with bondo easily and be fine. Patch sand prime and paint. You'll be good to go.

Not seeing the holes… dimple then surface a little to give you some depth and allows for edge finishing.

Give us a pic or two of the hood, the holes, etc...

NEVER FILL HOLES WITH BODY FILLER! it WILL fall out. always weld them up. first time you get moisture under the hood and it hits that body filler, it's gonna fail. how i see it is you have two options. leave the scoop, or sell that hood with the scoop and buy a hood without.

Good point…
If you have to weld up the holes, fill them, repaint the hood and you want to keep the OEM styling then replace the hood.
An ’03 Power Dome Hood would look good but hard to locate a good one.
