Spray glue on underside of hood 😕

Previous owner installed good insulation that I didn’t like trying to remove it. Any suggestions on the actual glue itself to get that off? Thanks

I'd try a heat gun and putty knife. If paint isn't an issue I'd take the hood off and use oven cleaner or acetone.

* DRY ICE
- Blasting, should come right off. (silver part)
- FYI: If you ever want to remove decals, this is how.

Goo Gone/Acetone/Lacquer Thinner (adhesive)
- use a plastic scrapper like they use to apply window tint so you doesn't damage the paint.

Good Luck

Would an eraser wheel do the trick??? I didn't try on my hood adhesive.

PS: I gave in and simply bought new hood insulation from Collins Bros. (through eBay for cheaper shipping)

If you gave in, you can gently sand down the needed area and get "3M Super 77 Spray Adhesive". It is an easy to use High Tack spray in a can. Simply spray on the under-hood area (tape off area) that you sanded and on the underside of New Hood Insulation. Let it tack dry and carefully stick it on. Use one of those small rollers afterwards; like for applying wallpaper, and roll it nice and flat. You should be fine!

Make sure you use newspaper or something along the edges for over spray. You want to make sure the edges are especially sprayed well.

Thanks all for the great ideas. A 1978 wouldn’t have came with any insulation correct?

I think they started adding them in 1981 or 82 with the Laredo, Limited models as part of sound proofing option.

Collins Bros and eBay sell this one that is made by REM Auto Inc. Found here: https://www.remautoinc.com/index.php

i put one on my CJ a few years back but took it off again due to concerns that it might hold too much heat in the engine compartment and make me run hotter.... Is this a valid concern? It was quieter with it on, but now I live in AZ where it can get pretty toasty......

Naw....it won't make it run hotter....the underside is open and all the air goes down that way. The only way you 'might' get it to run cooler is having vents in the hood. But if you need them to run cooler....you have other issues.

I do see an advantage in the winter....it would keep the heat in the engine bay a little longer.
