Be sure and visit: www.carmotorsports.com

Check out the beautiful Custom Embroidered SSR Underhood Insulator. It matches all the other Custom SSR Products offered by CAR Motorsports. The Underhood Insulator is available in Kit form for $100 less. About half of the buyers choose this option...they like to work on their cars themselves.

Couldn't find

I went to your website but couldn't find the SSR underhood insulator. Kept getting an error message on the search.

Seems a bit steep to me. I went to Norva Plastics (norvaplastics.com) in Norfolk, Va. Created a few stencils of the SSR logo the same size as the one under the hood and the one on the tailgate. They are making me the SS in mirror plastic and the R in Red plastic. I am getting two sets for $60.00. Should have them by Wed., but they have been very busy. One of the guys in the beachcomber corvette club did his entire hood in mirror plastic from templates he made and stuck them on with velcro. I hope they have some type of adhesive that will work but the product is lightweight and I will try a variety of adhesives. Liquid nails may work pretty good against that material under the hood. We shall see what they recommend later this week. will keep ya'll posted. :seeya

under hood logos

I have the door sills posted on e-bay and have made the under hood also but haven't post them yet because i wanted to se how they hold up first. I've had them on a couple of ssrs for a while now and appear to be holding up great and will be posting them in the next day or two at a cost of $9.99. :seeya

What did you use to adhere the under the hood images? I have found that material on the heat shield to be very resistant to most adhesive materials. Any ideas?

Under hood adhesives

I explored the possibilities of putting the SSR logo in the hood insulator and after talking 2 many decal n sign shops they ALL said it will NOT STAY. They've tried this with other applications with little or no luck, especially 4 long term use. They all said the adhesives they've used do not stand up to the heat and the product simply peels away or cracks. :nodno

The problems with products like "Liquid Nails", is getting it applied so there r no missed areas and keeping it in place 4 it 2 set up evenly. The other problem is that the insulation is porous n the adhesives do not absorb or adhere evenly. :nodno

I finally went 2 my auto body guy n he did his majic n painted it along with all my visable bowtie's. :yesnod C pic's below.

Hope this helps n saves sum frustration 4 u members. If u cum up with a better solution pls post it.

:cool

I have a vinyl lettering business and made the door sill inserts , under the hood insert & bow ties for the wheels. I have had them all on mine since last Nov and are still as good as the day i put them on. They are also on two other freinds SSRs and appear to be doing fine. I haven't had any complaints from any one that i have sold them to yet. :) :)

Ur probablly correct.

QWKSSR, I didn't mean 2 infer that there r NO POSSIBILITIES 4 the application. :eek

It most likely means that the cos' I contacted did not hav the right stuff. Although 1 of the cos' is the biggest decal mfgr/seller in So Florida.(Speed n Truck World in Ft. Lauderdale.)

The main reason givin was if u drove it alot, everyday, it cud cause problems with the vinyl crackin and or peelin away. Then, in the next breath, they wud say that it either wudn't stick correctly to the fiber mat or I wud hav 2 hav it clear coated in the area of the logo 4 it 2 "MAYB" work.

Anyway I did what I did n I'm happy with it. :yesnod :yesnod :yesnod

I wish u Great success with ur business. :yesnod :yesnod :yesnod

The painted ones look awesome. That is exactly what I want to do with mine in all the same places, however, the plastic ones I am having fabricated can easily be put under the tonu if I can't adhere them to the heat shield under the hood. I am positive that I can adhere them with velcro for sure and it is easily available in various sizes. I plan on putting one of the plastic ones on the air bag cover and the larger one under the tonu. Did the guy who painted yours use eurothane? Thanks a bunch for the suggestions. This is turning out to be a very helpful thread. Meanwhile, I am working on a rat fink SSR. Still got a ways to go but here is a peek:

I bought the wheel bowties from QWKSSR and they're holding up great.

I sure hope you guys are licensed by GM. GM is getting REALLY tough in cracking down on unlicensed use of their logos. We are required to list the publications and boards on which we advertise and I wouldn't be surprised if they go and check them out. Just trying to warn everyone so no one gets in trouble with the General.
