1965-69 MOLDED HOOD AND FENDER INSULATION
We finally found a company that made molded fiberglass hood insulations during
the 60's. They explained that the "dots" were due to the perforated steel tooling
used for the molds. The hot air was forced through the holes to cure the raw
fiberglass. They said most car companies now want insulation to appear smooth,
but they could still make the old style tooling for us. The original molded hood &
fender insulations had the fibers showing & were a variegated color from light gray
to dark charcoal. Most of us think of them as being darker, but I think that is due
to aging, oil & dirt. As with the originals, there may be minor creases or "imper-
fect" areas as its very difficult to work with raw fiberglass (similar to sticky cotton
candy). Like the originals, ours have some areas that are "perforated" (engine light
hole, side marker lights) that you can finish cutting out if needed.
HOOD INSULATION UPDATE – The first run the hood light "cut out" was slightly off.
Current production has the correct location.
STIFFER – The Repro Insulation is a little stiffer. Have someone help with installation of the fender insulation.
Please read our detailed instruction sheets, especially for Convertibles!
NON-ORIGINAL INSULATION? Yes, we will continue to sell the non-molded insulation below, but seriously consider all of the molded pieces.
They really are much nicer!
Weights are high due to oversize shipping so insulation gets to you in perfect condition. WE WILL NOT FOLD THEM!
