Good point. I figured maybe the paint would stick better to alumn than stainless, if you're painting it.............

I needed to dig this thread back up, since I'm now in the process of installing my scoops. I took off the padded board that's bolted to the fiberglass hatch below it. I bolted the hatch scoops to the fiberglass hatch, now my upholstery guy and me are trying to figure out the best way to fit the padded board back over the scoops to get the wood, vinal and padding snugged up close to the scoops.

I'm looking for close up pictures of anyone that has done their own and took pics of the process. I need very close up pics where the vinal meets the scoop. Also, I'm open for suggestions on how to cut the wood properly so it will lay right against the scoop. I hope someone can see where I'm going with this and offer advice and pics... thanks

you probably will have to piece the wood in since most scoops are bigger on top than bottom and that will be the only way it fits tight around the base.... so your sunpad may have to be in parts if you want the bottom to be super tight around the scoop.... all depends on the scoops though...

i would start with a carboard template and see if you can slide the cutouts around the scoop or not...

look at the cig hatches that have scoops, i think that is what you are after, i know glh has posted his many times...

I suggested a cardboard template to the vinal guy and he agreed. Yes, the problem lies in the top of the scoop being larger than the base. This means the board will have to be cut into a few sections. I'm still looking for a better idea though.

Here's a look your probably trying to avoid. Boat came this way.

The ring is one piece and upholsterd in vinyl with no seams. It doesn't look like the ring would fit over the top either, but I think it was done this way because the upholstry and padding are attached directly to the hatch without it's own board. Maybe the ring was flexible enouph to fit over, and I think it hides a larger whole in the pad and how they secured it.

The hatch is all glass with a 1" foam core and the padding is only 1/2 inch or so - needed the clearance underneath hatch without "pad" sticking up.

I tackled all but the vinyl. I cant sew. I keep stabbing my finger
with the needle.
Reinforcing the harwoods with more glass is a good idea. Mine now has a 6" crack in the side - someone leaned on it - never saw or heard it happen..............

That really doesn't look all that bad with the trim ring. They're probably just covering up the rough edges. I'm trying to go without the trim ring, so all you would see is the padded vinal nice and tucked next to the scoop.
