5.0 Resto Fox Body Hood Insulators

Let’s face it, one of the most deteriorated pieces on ANY Fox Mustang is the hood insulator. Over time this particular part can start to sag, fall apart, and make your engine bay look down-right ratty!

Industry leader 5.0 Resto offers different varieties of hood insulators ranging from a Ford original part, one that is made from Ford Original tooling, and of course all the way to your standard, high quality replacements. Each insulator is designed for a stock hood or a ‘stock’ style replacement hood that accepts the factory hood insulator.

Touching base on the high quality replacements a little more; these are made of a tad bit thicker material than your stock hood insulator. However, they still fit a stock hood or ‘stock’ style replacement hood just fine. These insulators are a perfect budget friendly solution to your ragged stock hood insulator and will be available in kits with brand new push pins as well.

As far as installation is concerned, it’s an absolute breeze and can be completed in literally about 5 minutes of your time.
