    Default Under bonnet insulation

    Has anybody taken their's off and ran without it.

    I was thinking about yesterday, so i can have a fully detailed bonnet and it would make the engine bay look nicer.

    Just wondering how much noise it would let through, although it is a quiet 2.2 petrol.

    What about the heat from the engine mate, would that not effect the bonnet as I thought it was made from alloy.......
    PS, it would look good

    Iam running my 3.2 at the moment without the insulation and no probs (yet) but you will have to get the under neath of the bonnet sprayed as its still in primer beneath the sound proofing !!!!!!!

    What tight gits, now that is penny pinching not spraying the bonnet both sides. I wanted to remove mine and polish it up to boost the appearence of the engine bay. I now know better, I won't be having the underside sprayed.
