Sound Dampening Material

Postby FrEaK » Tue Jul 30, 2002 11:43 am

The sound deadening material under my hood is starting to get raggety... i want to remove it... there's no big deals about it is there? It's just an eye sore, and i need to clear in there anyways... any real reason i should leave it, or replace it for that matter... :squint

I took mine off... its just there for people that dont want to hear their engines, the faggots dont belong in a 240SX IMHO. Anyways I didnt even notice a louder note under acceleration from under the hood, maybe a fraction louder but nothing drastic. So rip it off!

I love that smilie... he looks just like me... sort of angry but not really... hehe

anyways if anyone else is doing this... once it's off a big bottle of goo gone works wonders to get rid of all the grease and dirt buildup.. it takes alot of goo gone and alot of rags but it's worth the effort..... My hood never looked so sexy... well except the time that sexy chica sat on it... mmmm :boink

That's part of it... the heat can become very intense, and that stuff does provide a certain amount of insulation. I don't know if it has anything to do with fire retardation, but it can prevent paint damage. The clearcoat will peel over time if you live in a warm climate, and don't have that insulation in place.... but it isn't THAT important, chances are you'll never have a problem.

I really SERIOUSLY doubt it will ever be a problem. It does serve a purpose, but I don't think it's very important to the paint. It can help to have it on, but if you already removed it... leave it off. And if your hood paint goes to crap, how hard is it to repaint..

You can always go with some nice shiny metallic replacement material if it begins to present a problem.
