Title: 76 F/bird Base model hood insulation replacement ?
Post by: custom on September 19, 2018, 05:28:37 PM
Could the hood insulation be totally removed or is there a real need for it ? Mine is looking a bit shabby and if I can do w/out I will leave it off ! Thanks.

Thanks, I read that it was an option and didn't want to have the paint get to hot or something odd like that happen if I left it off !!

It's not necessary.  The shaker hood on Trans Ams didn't come with any.

More for sound insulation than heat, regardless, poor condition should be replaced or removed.

Remove it, you don't want that crap to fall on or clog your air cleaner or other parts.
