PostSubject: 59 under hood insulation   Tue Oct 15, 2013 10:24 pm

I purchased a hood insulation kit from AMES performance.
For the life of me I can't figure how to place the wire supports that came with the kit.
They told me it was simple but no info came with the kit.
I have looked for pictures of 59's with hood up, but haven't been able to find one with insulation.
I thought it would dress up the underside of hood.
I am thinking I should have saved my money!!!
Can anyone HELP

I too bought insulation from Ames (and no instructions). I didn't know that clasps where needed so I kept trying to wedge the wires into the framework which of course did not work very well. Finally gave up when the wires kept popping out... so went with a different albeit not as period correct method. Sure could have used these pictures!

Thank you for the pictures.
I wasn't even sure I had the right parts for the 59.
It only took 15 min. to install when I knew what to do.
Thank you all the from Pennsylvania to France

Thank you .
I'm glad to help you succeed. In general it is the opposite.

Whenever I buy a U.S. car, I also sought the original documentation. And its history. Your cars from the 50 '60' are a part of the global automotive history. And they also represent the dream of a generation after the war in our country.
