Does anyone know who makes the correct hood insulation and fasteners for a '69 Impala? Thanks

Hi CD. I bought mine from Ecklers, it fits good but the fasteners won’t stay latched. 😠

No one! LOL. The correct molded hood pad is not made, just a fiberglass insulation blanket. REM in PA is as good as any. Many people making clips, some are better than others.

Yeah Donny, I knew that. I should have asked who has the one that fits properly. I see some that have straight edges and some are curved.

As Don said, you can't get good insulation. You have to choose from "meh" and "awful". My last insulation cam from Impala Bob's and it was "Meh". The insulation prior to that came from Hubbards and it was "Awful".
