Under hood covers include heatshield barrier insulation panels to protect painted surfaces and to reduce the vibration and noise produced by these large body panels from entering the passenger cabin. Under Hood kits are year, make, and model specific, pre-cut and ready to install, and come with a hardware kit and illustrated installation instructions. Where possible, the manufacture uses factory hood insulation mounting holes and will require additional mounting holes. Instructions for drilling mounting holes and a “drill stop sleeve” are included in each kit.
The HeatShield Thermal Acoustic insulation panels are designed to fit between the structural ribs of the hood to stop vibration. The high-temperature ABS panel covers and protects the insulation. It also conceals the underhood rib structure and the blemishes that come as a result of exterior body work.
