Any drawback from original design?

Having just cleaned a mouse nest from my Mom's car over the weekend which was between liner and hood, just curious if similar could happen, or other issues?

What's the source for this liner? TIA.

Looks like the one Rob Budd sells @ Classic 9:

No drawbacks except not OEM. In my experience however, this type may last longer than OEM.

Looks like the one from Jager. I did not have good luck with that one though, specifically the decal attached to it, which bubbled up from the heat. I used another of their decals on the reflective liner from 928 Motorsports and that has been perfect for a few years now. I'm thinking reflecting the heat is better than absorbing it.

Original installation




When the decal bubbled off, I tried a reverse effect, painting the whole thing with high-temp paint then peeling off the decal, but it kept dropping red dust



Then eventually just replaced it





The reflective silver material worked so well on the 928 that when I built my custom widebody Cayenne, I found the same material at Lowes in the HVAC isle and made a custom hood pad for the Cayenne (they don't usually have them).

Yep I think they are both Budd's, and just a note, the factory didn't cover the smaller front part where the higher Air pressure flow is for the Rad, usually has decal for the Vac/PCV/Emissions info.

Yes, it loses it's intended purpose of sound deadening. The stock "Waffle" design is far superior as compared to a smooth design for sound deadening.

But, they look "nice".

Cost some pointage at concours too..OR at least if not a negative, the OEM one would be a distraction from something minor if another car had aftermarket..

Im at that point...expensive hobby..

I went OEM on the black 91 this time - per Roger's recommendation it really sticks to the hood once you remove every bit of adhesive residue.

In the future I would make cuts in the adhesive backing to allow to place it and remove sections of the backing. That would be a lot easier and get better results.

The stock waffle lasts only about 10 years or less before it becomes crisp and the least disruption knocks off chunks of it onto the top of your engine. The other choice lasts much longer in my estimation. YMMV.

Porsche greatly improved the material used in the stock waffle insulation and I am pretty sure it will last more than 10 years now. My 1993 GTS is still original and that is 25 years.
The great benefit of the stock insulation is that it comes with the adhesive backing already applied - peel and stick. You do not have to remove old adhesive at all just wipe it over with white spirits to get rid of dust particles.
In fact the old adhesive acts like a primer.
We sell the original OEM pad for $89.95.
We also stock the original smaller insulation pad.applied to the top front section of the hood - $39.

Hmmmm. I guess that I got a NOS hood liner when I replaced the Stepson's hood insulation 10 years ago because it's all crispy and hard and falling off now.

Good feedback on all, and thanks for the sources on both styles.

Wow, didn't even know the original was still available.

I have Rob Budd's on two of my cars. Looks awesome and never had any issues using 3M 77 to glue it on.
