Odd LEGO Piece : HOOD SCOOP ?
Posted by oldcarguy on Tuesday, May 30, 2017 9:07 AM

 Hi ;

    I decided to let you all know that that ubiquitus Brick company has a new part . Why worry about LEGO ? Well , it is what I call a finish plate . It came along about the time their Disney Castle and Carousel did . Don't know it's regular kit use .

    What caught my attention is how it resembles , With very little work , a low profile , Pointed Center hood scoop ! I sanded one down and removed the locking mechanism molded in. Note ; All plastic bricks have locking tubes or circles molded in to lock together .

 This is thick enough to tolerate some energetic sanding for rounding the edges . Geez , I wish I could send a picture of it ! The Part number is 22386 15-02 And you can contact LEGO customer Service in Connecticut for the part . Probably about forty cents with shipping . I hope this helps someone .  O.C.G.

You need to get yourself a used compact digital camera. They trade for the equivilent of a handful of pocket lint, and are easy to use. Photo hosting and posting is easy too. It's worth a try, and so helpful when communicating as you do on these forums.

Perfection is achieved not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing left to take away.

Is this the part you mean?

It was interoduced in LEGO's "Nexo Knight" line and is often simply referred to as a "Nexo Knight Shield." It's found its way into a lot of other sets, though, thanks to the myriad decorative options it offers.

LEGO parts have found their way into a few of my builds, including minifig arms for rear-view mirrors...

...elbow joints for exhaust pipes...

...and backpacks for saddle bags...

Lots of fun possibilities out there
