1976 Eldo Convertible underbonnet / hood soundproofing
« on: December 28, 2016, 07:32:53 PM »
Hi, well Xmas has slipped past, I hope you all had a pleasant time and I wish you all well for the new year.

I removed a/ comp and am about to rebuild the carb .. I looked at the soundproofing material from my under bonnet......
even tho` it was OEM it looked like it was made of roof insulation with all the fibres hanging down. So I decided to pull that off, it came off easily in one large piece,
just held by the clips.

Anyway has anyone replaced that and if so what with..
Thanks Matt.

Yes, I have just done mine, using a product from USA for US$62.95.   Not sure if it is the same as that used in the '76, but it came supplied with the almost correct retaining plugs.

The postage wasn't that bad as the package was light.

Mine took a couple of weeks, but as there was other purchases involved, it wasn't a problem.

As for cost of postage, I cannot find the postage amount as I have gotten rid of the box.   But, it wasn't that much, something like US$38.00
