Nice weather and finally dry, time to get the under hood insulation clean. Been a problem every time I opened the hood, rest of the bay is spotless. After reading a lot of methods just pulled it out, engine degreaser, hose and rattle can semi gloss engine paint. Had purchased replacement plastic push pins prior having learned how easily they can snap.

I know some would say toss it, but the raw hood underneath needs a lot more work than its worth.

wow, big improvement. Did you consider hitting the metal under the insulation with some primer just to protect it?

Thanks, I got lucky as it's aluminium hood and that off color is some type of protection, have no idea what GM used in the center. Being retired and a little OCD on the car lol it was just time to make it look like the rest of it.
