My 91 International has a really bad hood insulation piece that I would like to replace.  What years of CS would work?  Can I use one from a GP or Regal?  The area around the hood lamp is really bad and missing a lot of insulation material.  I'll look at the 89 International parts car but I think it's just as bad.

My 94 is just as bad. Let me know if you find anything that might fit it. Sent from my Nexus 5X using Tapatalk

Alrighty.  I got the part number for it and looked at GM parts sites but of course they don't have them anymore.  I also checked a parts site that has old new stock stuff and no results came back.  Looks like the junkyards is our only option.

Tough part will be cost of shipping.  Huge piece = Expensive

 

They won't roll up and rolling or folding will ruin it.

I forgot about that.  I'll probably have a hard time just finding one for my car.  I was hoping someone would know if the Regal or GP would work or what other years of CS would work too.

I've been looking at Bonneville and a few others.  Nothing close enough to be workable.  Mice got to mine a little.  I have a friend that is an automotive upholsterer.  I'm going to see if he can come up with a material that is similar to the outer layer skin and cement it on.  I never attacked one this way but its worth a shot as only my outer skin is hurt.

There are other hood insulations out there, that is not the problem.  The problem is that they are all form fitted to their own style of hood.  The form fitting around all the crossbracing is the biggest issue.  The other major issue is shipping.  Not long ago there was a NOS hood insulation for a Firebird on Ebay.  The part was around $50.00 but the shipping was $179.00.  There is no way around that unless you are lucky enough to live close to where the part is located, then you can pick it up.

Never thought of that.  The thing I'm concerned about is replicating the insert tabs on the side where it locks into the metal holes of the hood.  I suppose you could always cut the shape out of a larger piece from another vehicle make/model.

I hate to say it because you guys are purists and I respect that but there's aftermarket options. Maybe making use of the silver stuff wouldn't be factory but it's a superior product. I want to say there's a black one too that would still be incorrect but so few people would even know that it may be the best/most cost effective solution.

Its not a "purist" thing.  Just looking to "restore" the car not modify or customize it.

Anybody can modify a car.

 

It takes perseverance to bring one back.

Really superb!  It's coming together so beautifully!  How hard is it to remove the window and beltline trim?  Did you see my STE?

There's other places that sell universal stuff, google - "universal hood insulation"

This brand seems to make a bunch:
