RMM Carbon Fiber Hoodscoop Installed

First, remove the stock scoop with a ratchet and 10mm deep socket (self-explanatory):

Next, use a wrench to unscrew the stock screw posts (since the Rod Millen scoop doesn't come with any)

Time for the power tools grin

Gently and carefully drill out the holes, using a slightly larger drill bit each time until the hole is wide enough (but not TOO wide - you don't want the screws to fall out)

then, screw the nut onto the bolt and use the ratchet to gently tighten until it sits flush against the rmm scoop... BE CAREFUL: this is the most critical part, and you don't want to break the Fiberglass, it's VERY fragile if you put too much pressure on it.

I like your Celica so much Evan, it looks so clean and not over the top with Rice mods. thumbsup thumbsup

To have played and laughed with enthusiasm
and sung with exultation
To know even one life has breathed easier
This is to have succeeded.

Evan, get the RMM wing bro. It'll look hella tight with the rest of your mods... I got one but have yet to see it. Getting back to philly on Monday, then modding resumes.
