We took the hood apart on my 67 Impala. Separating it into the inner hood brace and the outer skin for repairs. In taking it apart there were quite a few areas where it rusted where it looks like some sort of foam circles were. These are between the inner brace and the outer skin.

Does anyone know what these are? Are they just mounts? Are they rubber? foam? I'm just not sure what to search for to look up what is to replace them since they are just dust at this point.

IIRC, on my '69 there were random gobs of some kind of adhesive oozed out from between the hood and bracing. I figured it was there to prevent the hood from rippling, like you sometimes see happening on Nascar race cars.

Voted most likely to end up working at a car wash.

Ah okay. I hadn't thought about them being an adhesive. But that makes sense.

Some guys have used "expanding" foam adhesive.

Don't do that!

If you do, you'll be buying a new hood!

That adhesive keeps the upper and lower halves from contacting each other.
