Hood Liner needs to be repaired or replaced





Hi gang! This is what my hood liner looks like. I was wondering if any of you have had a liner in this condition and attempted a repair (i.e. contact cement and paint touchup) or just replaced it.

I'm tempted to try a repair, but wouldn't mind a new one with the Corvette logo painted like I've seen in other pictures. Any thoughts?

Thanks!

Re: Hood Liner needs to be repaired or replaced

WOW! I thought my hood liner was bad. :eek2:

You are better off to replace it with a new one. They are not that expensive. Be careful removing the round retaining clips. It is a very easy DIY.

My vote is to have a new one customized than to try and salvage the one you have. Once they start to peel, fugitaboutit!

Re: Hood Liner needs to be repaired or replaced

Another option... remove it and just leave it off.

I had that same thought until I saw what it looked like under my old liner.

New VS Nekked?

Here it is @ about 3 months new.


Sorry, no nekked pics.

Buy a new one embroidered with some beautiful emblem work from Carmotorsports.com in Georgia. That's where I got the liners for both my Z16 and my Grand Sport.

Re: Hood Liner needs to be repaired or replaced

Decided a new hood liner was a bit pricey for me right now, especially with other projects that need to be done on my Z06. So, after a little research I decided to do a refurb. Nothing new here; you guys have probably seen other posts of refurbs on hood liners. But I'm really pleased with the results:

Here's the hoodliner before.....



And here's the results.....



It's not perfect. The material to the right of the emblem was severely deteriorated. Very difficult to reattach to the base material. Because of it's condition there are a few wrinkles especially around the hood light fixture. The new emblem (stick-on decal) was a challenge too. On to the next project!

Re: Hood Liner needs to be repaired or replaced

Considering what you started with, that looks pretty damn good! And, no water spots!

Re: Hood Liner needs to be repaired or replaced

For those who have removed it, are there any issues with engine heat damaging the paint on the underside of the hood over time? I don't track the car but lots of time spent stuck in traffic during ridiculously hot Chicago summers...

Re: Hood Liner needs to be repaired or replaced

Anybody heard of the outside paint on the hood being damaged by heat, due to no liner? I've heard that happens to the Mustang GTs...
