I finally got around to buying some hood insulation for my 69 SS. Which way is it supposed to go in the hood? Should the insulation side face the engine, or should the paper side face the engine? And should I use something to attatch it in place?
Dear Guys: I realize that Ed325hp, in his original post, is probably talking about the real thing, while I may have bogus; however, I had to share this. I purchased a set of underhood insulation pads ( couldn't tell ya the name ) from NPD Detroit about 5 years back. They were all wadded up, kinda double, double in a cello package, and I thought "What the heck have I got here?" Well, the've been under the sport style hood of my '69 Beaumont for years, they look great ( the folds and creases came right out ), and here's the good part...compression fit only. Ya, I couldn't believe it either, so I just went out to check my car before posting this. For once I lucked in. So, if this is of any use to anyone else interested, these aftermarket bits are great. No glue, strips, maintenance of any osrt required. They just kinda sit there and do whatever they are supposed to do. Hope the next guys are as lucky. R.B.
