I know some of you have replaced the 20+ year old under hood insulation.

What materials did you use to do the project? Was it one big sheet?

An Impala kit?

Where did you source the materials?

Details please!!!

Dave on a tip from the Impala guys, when I hit that deer in 2015 and had to replace the hood, I pulled a decent pad from a salvage yard caprice, and then pulled the outermost layer of the pad off, which was peeling a bit. Then I used universal black frame and chassis spray paint, and did 2-3 light coats. It dries to a semi-gloss color that looks just like the stock color. It's held up just fine!



My next project is to try and find a stencil to paint BUICK and possibly the tri-crest on the pad, like the Grand Nationals and mid-80's FWD Electra and LeSabre had. I think it would look great!

I guess I'm after something a little prettier looking than stock
