    Default 1992-1997 CV/MGM new or near perfect hood pad wanted

    Wanting to replace the hood pad on the 96 CV. Looking for a new or excellent used pad.
    Another alternative is finding a vendor who will make a new one for me. Does anyone have any information on custom made hood pads ?
    So far I have come up with very little.

    I would think any custom upholstery shop could do something for you in color matched leather or vinyl or even a more upscale material of choice. It would be spendy though, but then again, finding what you're looking for may require that expense anyhow.

    The hood pads for the 90+ cars are designed to smother engine fires. They melt around the motor. That is why I am sticking with a oem type. Maybe someone has a junk hood with an excellent pad or has ordered one from a vendor.

    Oh... hood mat... somehow I got dashpad in my head. I know there's something available out there for customer shaped versions of those as a few have gotten some made for their cars. I just don't remember where.

    Advance Auto sells the "cut to fit" sheets of the insulation matting.

    https://shop.advanceautoparts.com/p/...i-3/10443216-P

    Unless you can find some NOS parts, used will not be worth using due to oil/dirt contamination at this point due to age.

    Thanks Sly. Advance has some good discounts right now. Aftermarket has to be the solution. No nos Ford pads anywhere in the US.

    My hood insulation material arrived. 1" fiberglass mat. I have to trim to fit. Ordered the first one through Advance Auto Parts online with 25% off coupon.
    After I install one pad, I plan to order two more. Looks like Rock Auto will get the deal. Just slightly under $100 delivered for 2 with GMN discount.
    New insulation clips ordered via Ebay. Package of 50 top quality oem type. Less than $10 delivered.
    Pictures of before and after coming shortly.
