Here is a new product we are now selling that solves an age
old problem with the Turbo Buicks! The original hood
liners are hard to come by these days with no word of anyone
coming out with a reproduction. These Hoodskinz are
constructed from 18 ga aluminum and then are powder coated
black. The silver colored graphics you see in the pictures
is the bare aluminum with a sanded finish. The Power 6
in color is painted.
The insulation placed on the back meets or exceeds
the function of the stock hood pad. Per the manufacturer.
The stock appearing version looks very similar to the original
without the hassle of worrying about it getting torn and how
to safely clean without ruining it. These Hoodskinz
simply wipe off. Please be sure to check for clearance
on your up pipe if you are running a non stock size or
configuration up pipe. On my own GN it just barely rubbed
but just made some adjustments to get enough clearance. We
have added a 10th hole to these which help with clearance
issues. There is a hole already in the hood brace
right where extra clearance may be needed and this can make
all the difference. The included Plastic Rivet style
fasteners hold it tighter to the hood than the GM
ones. You also want to make sure you use t
bolt clamps on your up pipe hose connections so you don't
blow the up pipe off. The last thing you want to do is
ruin your new hood liner.
It weighs about 6 pounds when completed. Shipping
is expensive due to the size of the package these ship in, no
way around that.
Click on below pic to see the two different fasteners
that you can use to fasten. The rivet style are now
included with every purchase. The Hoodskinz now have 10 holes so
if you want the GM style please buy accordingly. Those
are available at just about any auto parts store. Never hurts to have a few extra on
