DIY: Liftback Hood insulator install PICS

Well, it arrived today along with some other stuff.
Here you see the "box" (a folded over piece of cardboard).
Close up of part #.
Baggie of hood clips, you need 5, I bought 6.
Insulator was $58USD , clips about $1USD apiece.

Pretty foolproof, no skills or tools required.
I think there's fiberglass in that thing because I feel itchy now!

Thanks!

So it appears this part is readily available in the USA, BUT they are'nt in any of the LB's sold there. There must be a big pile of these things in a warehouse somewhere.....
What a waste......

I can tell just by looking at it that it's designed to be a flame retardant. Thanks for sharing.

What exactly is a hood insulator supposed to do and how does that function justify the price? Just curious. I live in interior AK and engine warmth is a big deal for short trips around town.

2 purposes....

1. hold ambient heat from engine in from escaping through thin sheet metal of hood

2. partial sound deadening.....yeah.....

Keeps inside cabin noise down, protects paint from direct heat of engine, "insulates" like the pink stuff, and may help contain engine fire.
Oh, and did I mention it just LOOKS GOOD too?
My old twin cam Saturn had an insulator, my single cam Saturn did not. That used to bug the heck out of me!

My pleasure.
It's not a cheap mod for what it is, but it gives a real nice finished look.

Perhaps, but it was bugging me that something was "missing" on the car.
Kinda like when you sit in a car and see all those plastic plugs in all the holes in the dash where all options would have gone....glad I sprang for the power package!
