If the scoop is original look under the hood and youll see holes in the center, those are the holes for the hood scoop location.


thanks

I'm putting one on my 70 as well, its in the body shop now. You can see the punch outs in the support frame under the sheet metal. I measured my buddies 69 428CJ factory scoop location at the rear middle of scoop to rear middle hood and it was 2 5/8" IIRC

One good way to make sure you have your holes properly lined up, is to: mount the screws into the scoop, and gently place it on the hood. Then,
use a few lengths of string, across the hood. Left to right, front to back. Where the strings meet under the studs, mark that exact spot with tape. Then drill.
