  • Adhere hood insulator

    I am having problems keeping the rear half of my hood insulator adhered to the hood. On hot days it droops loose, push it back up and it stays for awhile then same thing again.


    What works and where do I get it?

    Last time I do this,I promise
    It is an addiction!

        3m Super Trim Adhesive,
        I comes in a spray can. Spray both the pad and the hood. Let it tack up several minutes before you put the pad in place.

          Make sure you get the SUPER Trim Adhesive. 3M makes three different strengths. I believe the number of the one you want is 8090.

              And be careful. Once it touches the other surface, you won't be moving it again. After installing one I realized why so many of them are crooked in factory installations.

                Cover the engine bay and fenders with a sheet, the stuff splatters like crazy.

                    I attached the insulater tonite, I used a plastic drop cloth tho protect the car along with masking tape. I followed the directions on the can and all appears well.

                    One thing I did that seemed to help alot was to cut a piece of the plastic(clear) slightly bigger than the pad and placing it over the glued pad. We raised the pad located it properly and then gently moved the plastic back a couple inches at a time. This allowed us to rub out any air pockets as we moved from the cowl back to the front grill. Straight as an arrow in perfect position. Hope it helps someone in the future.

                    OK I lied....I'll do it again for the "right" car, I love the chase.....
