    Padding for hood on roof

    I have been using the closed cell, flame retardant roll bar padding glued to the underside of my hood to protect the roof paint. Is there a better padding out there?

    IMHO, that sounds pretty reasonable to use. If you have really nice paint and want to retain it, also toss a 100 % cotton baby blanket on the roof before setting the hood on it. If the roof is steel, sew in some magnets to keep the blanket in place in a breezey situation. If it's 'glass, then it's a two person job. I'm surprised that your adhesive is holding up with the presence of heat, above AND below....

    Thanks DD. I used construction adhesive which bonds anything to anything. I am getting some blistering/crusting on the foam.
    edit - it is glass..

    I used Peel & Seal from one end to the other on the 73 Camaro. Its a poor mans Fatmat. Sticks on its own great, works excellent as a heat barrier and sound deadner. You can buy it at Lowe's. Did my whole interior firewall to back deck, doors and roof for about $130

    OOps, my bad!

    I used to keep a set of water weenies on my 68 Camaro drag car, they store easy and I would just lay 2 of them on the roof when I removed the hood.
