whilst driving to work this morning through the monsoon in Kent i noticed steam coming off my bonnet. pulled over fearing the worst but nothing untoward was seen.
im thinking that, as i don't have an under bonnet insulation pad, the heat from the engine was just causing the rain water to evaporate.

is the insulation pad crucial? and does it have more that one use ?

cheers

Keeps noise down, helps keep your paint from checking and crazing and give the oil and mud splatters somewhere to congregate. :D

To me that would be more enough reason to get one if I was without it....

Did you offroad in mud with that thing on? I did and bashed it quickly. The **** thing absorbed all water and mud and was lying on the turning belt and pulleys. I was lucky that it didn't break something.
