Pretty poor glass fibre - waffer thin where the base joins the actual scoop - very poor moulding!!!!

So we got out some Pro Stick 2000 and stuck it back on - and trust me Pro Stick does exactly what it says on the tin - IT STICKS ANYTHING TO ANYTHING - yet it still allows a little flex - we use it in the bathroom industry to stick vitreous china to marble to steel to glass!

I wasen't planning on this on Sunday was pretty p*ssed it happened - a wee bit embarresed at the car wash when I had to reverse out! Not to sure what Milsport or Scoobyworld? (whom I bought it from - long story) should know about it - but the car wash would exert far less pressure on the scoop than the airflow over the boonet at lets say 100MPH ?? (not that I ever drive that fast of course!!!!) Trust me it will not come off again unless the bonnet comes with it?!?!?!?!

I just like the personal touch!! Its nice because you know you've cleaned it yourself and knowing that next week you'll have to do the same over and over again!!

Might take a little too long mate.. Besides, I think a sponge does a fairly good trick !!!!

the car wash prob did u a favour .
as u said it could of came off on the road
plus car wash,s creates slight scratch marks which are very fine but over time it will dull paint work
