I'm so glad to see this thread. I've got new, still in the box hood insulation that came with my 69, but love the look of the painted underside of the hood. I'm happy to hear I don't need to install the new insulation.

Thanks all!

After not having it, I put it back in. Adds originality at relatively low cost.

I've got the original SS hood. I did have to cut a circle out of the insulation for the air cleaner, but it looks pretty natural. My inserts haven't yellowed, but the black paint has flaked. I attributed it to my not properly sanding the surface when I repainted them though - they're also the original inserts.

I've never had insulation under the hood of my cars and haven't had any paint issues.
It's been like that for 10 years.

Although, I have been considering sticking Dynamat in the cut-outs on the underside of my hood to dampen vibrations.
