    Never heard of that place, is it in QLD $200 for a brand new insulation isnt to bad i thinks its probably better then my current insulation which is covered in sticky black grease. Im still looking into my otpions atm, might try and get it off the wrecked zed first see how much they will sell it to me for.

    Tip for anyone finding this thread again, use a tool similar to the type used to remove window winders, you need something that will get under the round clips evenly all around, then you can just pop them off. I just removed all mine without breaking any, and with very minimal damage to the insulation pad, which then just lifted straight off.

    That's the one, slide it all the way under the clip and then twist, they pop straight out.

    Some one was selling the trim clips in sets a while ago and had the hood lining ones in the packet. I got a full set somewhere.

    LOL, I probably have that too. Let me know when you find where "somewhere" is. I have so many unused Z things there.

    I would add that the bonnet pad has a couple of functions,

    1st it is a sound deadner to minimise the bonnet vibrations and any other sound waves that may be at a frequency the bonnet material lets through easily - sound insulation is often best achieved by mulitple densities of materials so sound waves that can penetrate one have a hard time with another,

    2nd we all know how hot it gets under that bonnet, I have seen many bonnets where the top has bubbling/damaged paint due to heatsoak from the engine. Not sure if this will happen with a Z but is it worth the risk?
