Ordered a pair yesterday and they arrived today. Good work
Not fitted yet as the bus is in bits and I have to paint them.
I am running a Subaru engine and the engine bay gets very hot after a run at speed so hopefully these will sort that out. I was going to fit some engine bay fans but this seems an easier solution.

What's available for a 66 at the moment? The website only shows alloy/stanless for £90, is that correct?

Yes, the latest scoops are a bit more expensive taking into account longer to TIG, prepare and increased costs....

I decided not to paint mine in the end. Figured they aren't original so I didn't want them to look like they were part of the bus

I polished them up a bit instead

Two questions - have people found they mark the paint or dent the vents? Do people use a bit of rubber stop body rub?

Thanks
Andrew

They come with rubber strips to go between the scoop and the body. You can see them on my photo above.
You have to be a little careful when fitting not to mark the paint when screwing them on as the screws pass through the vents and if you are sloppy you could scratch the paint, but it's not difficult. I don't think you could dent the vents unless you over tightened the screws
You need two people to fit them, one to hold the bracket on the inside and one to screw them on from the outside

Well I had a chance to give them a good test. A 500 mile round trip to Carfest North.
These scoops knocked 10 degrees C off my engine temp. This is bowling down the motorway at 75-80mph.
Most of you will not be running water-cooled set-ups but that will give you some idea of how much air they are getting in there.
