Cool Breeze Scoop

Cool Breeze Scoop

Do you find yourself hot and uncomfortable even though the top is down? Are you constantly trying to scoop in air with your hand from above the windshield or through the window? The Cool Breeze Scoop you will have fresh outside air being forced in over the console and into the foot wells and cooling you below the waist. The Cool Breeze Scoop is an easy-on/easy-off accessory that take less then 10 seconds to install and fits easily in your glove box when not in use. The Cool Breeze Scoop is molded from an automotive ABS/Polycarbonate composite plastic. It is non-reflective black with a textured finish. It can be primed and painted in a color of your choice with flexible bumper paint, but looks great the way it is delivered.

Glad they were at MATG XI... I got my scoop there and love it! Figured I would kick off some CB love. So come next year, get a scoop from these guys.

Of course, for the interests of objectivity, I do have to say that the first day my scoop picked up TWO bumble bees on the blue ridge parkway (hehehee) and tonight it snagged a wayward bat that swooped just a little too close to the car.

But on the other hand, even when the temp outside is 105 like it has been in Raleigh these last few days, the scoop keeps a steady stream of air blowing into the foot wells that keeps them from getting to be stuffy and hot.

This is definitely in the top 3 list of things I have bought for my Miata.

i woulda loved to have had a bat follow me home.
Is my glass half full or, half empty?

I don't really care. All I know is I'm gonna have to wash another friggin' glass.

We've had one Bumblebee and one Japanese Beetle pass through ours. When the bee came in it was sort of fun to watch my wife hopping around over there in the passenger seat. Score Wife-1, Bumblebee-0

Bug screen yes. A way to keep the thing attached to the car that really works, no.

I just lost the 3rd one that I've owned blowing off on the interstate. :cry:

Great idea, but the little scotchguard thingies just don't cut it. Anybody out there find a way to keep them attached?

I've never had a single problem with mine. I'll attest that they will hold on up to 90 no wait.... 55 mph! :D

But then again, mine was installed by the guy that designed and sells them.

The biggest issue most people have is not making sure the post that goes in the gaskets are fully seated. I've noticed myself not doing this and had to reset it to make sure it didn't blow off.

After losing the first one, I was pretty paranoid about making sure everything was seated. Ditto on numbers 2 and 3.

I think my problem is the velcro like pads wear out after a while. Since the Uber install, AC goes from high temps to overheating in 20 minutes of highway driving, so the scoop is pretty useful, when it stays put.

If I spring for another one, I need to figure out some kind of safety chain kind of thing. Somehwere out there on the highways of Western PA, I've got a hundred bucks worth of plastic getting run over. :shock:

How about a short length of picture hanger wire that hooks around the post of the rear view mirror somehow?

The problem I was having with mine was that the plastic would leave black marks in the paint when I put it on and took it off. I was tilting it forward when taking it on and off when I shouldn't have been. Now I rest the rod on the gasket with the scoop about 1.5 inches to the right of center, put my left fingertips on the left end of the rod and my right fingertips on the right end of the rod, then press the rod into the gasket as I slide it to the left. You can tell when the rod is in all the way because the scoop slides more easily with the rod at the bottom of the gasket.

There's some good information in this thread on m.net.

I got my cool breeze scoop at MMG 2006. I added a 1/8 inch air conditioner screen cut to fit the front and have never had a bee or have grass come thru it again. When it gets dirty just rinse it out and go again. AA++ I highly recommend this low $ add-on. :drive:

I've never had a problem with mine. I think the key is getting the rod firmly in the groove.

This does look like a really nifty little add-on. I will definitely have to track this guy down.

You'll never understand HOW you ever drove a Miata in the summer without it... it is by far the best Miatabucks I've ever spent... well, except for the money I spent to buy my second NA... :drive:

Will you have some extra velcro for the scoop. Mine just melted off over this summer and though I can use the scoop, it rattles. Regular velcro doesn't work either, you must have some kind of magic velcro!

go to Wal-Mart and buy some industrial strength velcro -- it comes in a small box with both the hooks and the loops -- just cut to size and stick on
