DIY sealing the hood.

so many asked so you had me out in the rain today. nissan part#66830-50Y00 this only comes with 11 clips the white one's in the picture i am sure you can order some more i used a total of 17 clips. the strip was a little long so i cut it down to 42'' after i had it attached. drill holes are 3/16'' i didnt really space the holes any special way just how i thought it would hold the best,i did one hole at a time and snapped it in place as i was going along. you will have to respace the clips make some new holes in the rubber,but is is pretty simple just dont make the holes to large it will stretch over the clips.

May I sugget that everyone use tape where you drill to avoid any blistering of the paint, just as a precaution. Good luck everyone, nice job indeed

looks better and if you got a cone filter it keeps water from going in during rain and being sucked in to your airfilter.. with the air and everything...

How much was the strip? Where did you buy the extra black clips?

Nice clean job... But, there are plenty other ways water gets under your hood. Are your going to seal those up to?

Also, people could use this if they don't want to drill. It has 3M double sided tape to hold it in place...



It's actually truck tailgate seal and can be found for about $30 a roll (probably 2-3 Yaris hoods worth). The density feels about the same as the factory rubber seals around the doors. I keep a roll around as you can use this stuff for lots of things...

Wow, they actually make kits for this:

Not sure what "fender beadings" are, but they come in different colors:

Does this affect closing the hood? Do you have to use a bit of force? Are you able to reach the latch when you open the hood?

The Yaris is the first car I ever owned that didn't have a front hood seal.....another corner cut by toyota.

Anyway, sealing the front of the hood should keep the upper enginer bay a bit cleaner especially if you drive alot in inclement weather.

I have an idea about using something that will be a custom fit, will fill the gap and be real easy to to install.

I will keep Y'all posted about this.
