    Hood insulation?

    At any point in time, did the hood come with insulation underneath? I have a US 91 and it did not. Is it necessary?

    most likely not. Heck the 95 P38s across the pond did not come with hood pads. All 96 P38s came with them.

    Re: Hood insulation?

    Are you referring to the noise adsorbing “fleece” on the underside of the hood/bonnet for quieting engine noise? My UK 1985 classic had it fitted

    My Classic has the bonnet/hood insulation. I guess it helps with noise but if we have a hot summer like we did last year I might take it off for the summer

    Manish, what year Classic? Please your year and engine to your signature field... it's just a few fields above your location field

    Re: Hood insulation?

    Its not just noise. It protects the bonnet paint and lacquer from heat (to some extent)
    89 Vogue SE = sold, with a tear in my eye want it back!
    98 HSE = sold, good riddance.
    03 Vogue = sold but not bothered
    now 93 EFi = I like a challenge and a 4.4 TDV8 VSE L322 Stornoway Grey.

    Yes, but they usually fall apart.

    My 92 County had it but it was pretty much dust so I removed it. I'm thinking of putting some aftermarket sound deadening in there though. I just put a set of headman headers on and now I get a lot more valvetrain noise in the cabin.
