Custom 98+ Ranger Hood with functional cowl induction scoop. (CA-NOR CAL)

Checking interest here. I am getting my front end re-painted and going to use this hood as a temporary hood.I got for cheap at the junkyard but If anyone is looking for a functional cowl induction scoop I can get it done. I will show you pictures of mine when it's done and show how it turned out. This hood will be primed and ready to paint when done i include the scoop just like that one to get used. So any of you local NOR CAL guys I can help deliver or SO CAL. PM me for more info, I don't know if LMC sells ones that are funtional but this will be less then what they sell them for hopefully but I can get a quote on monday and ask my body shop guy about it. This hood fits the 98-03 ranger (correct me if I'm wrong please about fittment) Also this is a steal hood and not fiberglass but it is very lightweight. Here are some pics with my scoop on it just for reference:

I have to talk to my body shop guy to do it and how much it will be. I'm checking interest and if anyone is interested then I can get it done. I'm not going to waste my time and money and not have anyone interested in it hence that's why there is a "Checking Interest" in the title. I hope you understand these pictures are just a model of what it can look like. Anyways I will get pictures of MY hood when it's done.

Yes it is an all metal scoop but it is not going to be welded on. The way a member on here did it and what my body shop guy told me, was it's best to rivet the the scoop onto the hood and use heavy duty fiberglass as well as the body fillers and all the sanding they have to do to get it looking right.

Sry to thread jack but....

They want 79 for the scroop its self which isnt bad at all then they want 41 to ship it holy hell so 120 for a scoop then you need to put it on the hood and paint it.
