Hood Kit - Damplifier Pro & Heat Wave Pro (or upgrade to Mega Block)
*MADE IN USA*
Second Skin's Hood Kits have all the thermal insulation materials needed for insulating your hood, whether you want to protect a paint job or just want to decrease the noise and heat that gets into the cabin of your vehicle. Damplifier Pro mats are 2mm of American made butyl rubber (NO ASPHALT!) and a thick, annealed foil to stop structural noise from hood rattles. Heat Wave Pro and Mega Block both make a great car heat shield, allowing your air conditioner to work less to keep you cool.
Damplifier Pro should be applied to as close to 100% of the metal under your hood as possible to receive the full benefits of Damplifier Pro's thermal insulation. Both the Heat Wave Pro (standard kit) and the Mega Block (premium kit) should be cut to fit with scissors and then have their seams taped with Foil Insulation Tape. Mega Block also includes a peel & stick adhesive for easy application. We recommend physical fasteners in addition to the the adhesive for both heat insulation products.

Step 1 - Clean the metal with denatured alcohol.
Step 2 - Test fit and cut the Damplifier Pro. Install the vibration damping sheets by pushing the product on and then rolling it tight with the included wooden roller.
Step 3 - Test fit the full sheet of Heat Wave Pro and cut to fit with scissors. Once fitted, an extra set of hands are helpful to hold the sheet while installing. Spray both Heat Wave Pro and the installed Damplifier Pro with spray adhesive. Wait 90-120 seconds for glue to tack. Push the Heat Wave Pro onto the hood on top of the installed Damplifier Pro, starting from the middle push towards the outer edges. Hold in place until glue has fully bonded. Tape the edges and seams with the included foil tape. If you upgraded to the Mega Block, be intentional about applying enough pressure to push all the way through. Your fingers should feel the adhesive bonding to the other surface. *Physical fasteners are recommended to secure Heat Wave Pro or Mega Block in place*.
