Mine has held up very well. I did mine without removing hood. I also sprayed clear over the panel. looks good.

Which adhesive did you all use, the 3M I think its 80 or something like that?

Taking off the hood has me a little spooked, but so far its within my radar.

SA,
I put mine in about a month ago, so probably not a good representation. I'm having trouble with the pad itself in a few places, but the decal is holding up really well. I got the silver decal to match my grey shark and I like the effect.


I think the spray glue I used is the wrong one, I used some 3M interior spray glue instead of something designed for high heat. So far it's in two small areas and I haven't had a chance to get into it, but I think I may have to peel back the pad and reglue it in a few places with better stuff. I did mine while the hood was in place also.

I used a quart size container of contact cement for counter tops from Home depot and a roller brush. Works like a champ and it'll NEVER come off.

Andrew,

I think I have some of that laying around. I'll have to give it a shot, thanks.

I guess you did have to remove the hood for that though, right?

Yes. You don't want to do it in place. Ask me how I know?

Rod Underwood had a good idea for installing the liner and getting it straight.

With the hood off and laying flat spray the liner with adhesive 3M #80.
Spray the underside of the hood with the same.
Lay strips of wax paper across the hood side to side so it covers the entire area where the liner will go.
Put the liner on top of the wax paper and line it up
Pull the wax paper out one piece at a time.
The wax paper slides out easily leaving the liner in place.

If anyone has any problems whatsoever, please let me know.

BTW You can get them on my web site. If you enter "Rennlist" (no quotes) in the "Discount password or coupon number?" box on the shopping cart page, you'll get 10% off everything you order.

Rob, thanks for the tip. You will be hearing from me sooner or later for a new hoodliner, mine is the original and looks very "aged".

Steve,

I hear you on the 'aged' thing. This liner (from Rob Budd, thank you very much) was the first thing I did to 'dress up' under my hood and it looks a million times better than it did, even with the bubbles.



By the way Rob, your avatar has some 'accessories' that I haven't seen advertised anywhere, are they all yours ?

BTW

Since about February, when Ford Motor Company decided they didn't need my services any longer there's 618 of my hood liners out there.
They're on every continent, including Iceland, Crete, Malaysia, Japan, Malta, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, India, Thailand, Guam, Puerto Rico, UAE, Israel, and some places I can't remember. The French 928 club has a dozen or so.

So far I've replaced about 6. Two of those were 1/8 inch material which I don't sell anymore. The issues were installs gone bad rather than material failure.

I'm a lucky guy. My thanks to the Rennlisters that helped make this endeavor a success.

I think Rob mentioned once before those "accessories" are his Sunday school class.

Crest, "PORSCHE", 928, or plain? I decided once, but forgot.
