View Full Version : No hood pad underneath

Well I took my hood pad off a few weeks ago but now the part of the hood above where the engine sits is kinda dented now.....I am wondering if the engine heat is hot enough to do this damage....

Yeah, it's gonna depend on the dent. I cant imagine the engine heat warping the inside of the METAL hood. I would think there would have been signs of that on the pad itself.

Any chance the hood got closed with a tool still in the bay or something? Is the paint scratched? Etc...

Yeah, pics would help :)

^^ I'm with him.. if your engine got hot enough to melt your hood, you've got bigger problems to worry about... (like death by fire.)

Translation: no

is the dent inward or outward
