WHY A FORD THUNDERBIRD CHROME HOODSCOOP BEZEL?
It adds value and also because Ford did not incorporate the chrome bezel with the stock Ford Thunderbird.

It also helps to increase your Tbirds value giving it the look of a "premium" upgrade. We sell a lot of Tbird Hoodscoop Bezels.

Important Installation Note: Please be sure to bend the edges of this stick-on tbird hoodscoop before adhering it to your Tbird. If you don't bend it to the contour as much as possible, it will pull up over time. If you do this bending before applying this trim to your hoodscoop, you will eliminate the problem before it happens. I hope this helps. - Aaron Scott
PREMIUM TBIRD HOODSCOOP BEZEL DESCRIPTION
This Ford Thunderbird Hood Scoop chrome trim is
a chrome plated ABS plastic. This Hoodscoop Bezel Kit is an all in one snap-on part that replaces the whole existing hoodsoop bezel you currently have on your Tbird. You will not have to
drill any holes or screw bolts into your Ford Thunderbird to install. The Ford
Thunderbird Hood Scoop trim attaches with the ford factory snaps and will not damage your Thunderbird in any way thus keeping the value of your Tbird as a collectors vehicle. We recommend this PREMIUM Hoodscoop over the Stick-On Hoodscoop Bezel because of the way it replaces the whole bezel section, including the louvers. Also, the look does not look "aftermarket", thus giving it that more natural original factory look while at the same time giving it more of a luxurious look. This will ad value to your Thunderbird. We offer two versions: the Black Louver, Chrome Top Premium Hoodscoop Bezel and the All-Chrome Hoodscoop Bezel!

I recently received the replacement hood scoop bezel and tail light bezels for my '05 Thunderbird. I have not installed the tail light bezels yet (waiting for 65 degrees or better), but the hood scoop bezel is installed and looks great. I wanted to pass on my experience with that installation.
When I read the instructions that came with the new bezel and it said to remove the hood liner, I knew I was in trouble, since I had neither the tools nor the know-how to do that. So I called the Ford dealer who sold me the 'Bird in '05 and talked to the service manager, who sent me on to the body shop that they use for such projects. When I got to the body shop (Accurate Lines of Marysville, WA) and explained my needs, the mechanic looked at the car, the replacement bezel, and asked why I thought I had to remove the hood liner. Being a good soldier (retired), I replied, "Because that's what the instructions that came with the part said to do." So he said, "Not so," went back into the shop, came back with two flat bladed screwdrivers, popped the old bezel out, popped the new one in, and that was that -- in about ten seconds. Needless to say, while this is going on, I'm standing there with my mouth hanging open in astonishment and awe, waiting for lightning to strike him, me, and my precious 'Bird for such an act in the face of the instructions that came with the part. When I asked what I owed him, he replied, "Just a big smile." He certainly got that.
Will go. Keep up the good work. I will be coming back to you soon for more "dress up" goodies for my 'Bird. I learned of your existence, by the way, from the Thunderbird Scoop, the magazine published by the Vintage Thunderbird Club International.

Thunderbird Concepts Note on Installation: We suggest you don't use a screwdriver to pop off the existing hoodscoop (although it can work like it did for Trammell) It is a really easy install. All you do is pop off a few clips on the inside hood liner and then pop off the clamps on the INSIDE of the existing hoodscoop. This way you will not BREAK off the tabs or scratch your paint. JUST SIMPLY PINCH IN THE CLIPS UNDERNEATH THE HOOD LINER. It's a very simple install. We suggest this method over the screwdriver method.
Here is a note we received from one of our valued customers, George H.
Received the Ford OEM Hood scoop chrome trim.....Looks terrific of course.....OH yes.....here is an installation tip that can help out other Tbirder's:
Installation tip: Before inserting new hood scoop trim piece, place a tiny coating white grease, or even vaseline on both sides of each of the 3 clip/fasteners. The trim piece will pop right in with very little force and binding. Additionally, a slight wipe (we're talking barely visible..) of the same white grease (Available at Radio shack in small tubes) applied to both surfaces of the big boot snaps before you install, makes on and off a breeze. Snaps push right on, hold as usual, AND pop off without massive pull.
*This is not required for installation. It will simply make installation a little easier.
