Hood Bumpers

Probably not the ones you guys are thinking of. Awhile back when I was installing some lights on my bumper and I was going in and out of the engine bay. Long story short the wind was blowing pretty good and when I opened the hood to rest in on the windshield the wind grabbed it from my hands and it slammed against the windshield metal. I said a few choice words and immediately put some clear coat where the paint chipped off.

Now there is a little bit of rust on hood where the paint chipped. I dont have a pic right now. If you look at your YJ hood there is that raised section that is on the hood. My chips are where that raised section would meet the windshield (one chip on pass side and the other on the driver side). I dont want to have to paint that section because I doubt I will be able to mix the exact color for that small job.

SOO what I was thinking was to clean up the rust, prime or clear coat it, then get some rubber stoppers and put them right over where the chips are.

That way it can double as a cover up and have the function of "isolating the hood from the windshield when i lay it back" lol. Anybody done this before?

Rubber cut to size/shape and an adhesive. Never seen it done before , but that is how is do it. You can also probably cut down a body mount puck or dock bumper and bolt it through the hood

Poison spyder vented hood. Mount a light bar with a 24" led. I had the same problem only a little wrinkle no paint chips.

If you opt for primer, use primer/sealer. Primer isn't a barrier finish (metal that has been primed will still rust).
