I buy the 3M heavy duty glue. Comes in a spray can, last digits 090. I get it at AutoZoo. Put the hood straight up and cover everything with a big plastic sheet. Scrape the old stuff off with plastic putty knife (three pak at walmart).
test fit the new pad to be sure how it is going to fit. I like to spray one half (left or right) on the ground and spray matching part of hood. Let sit a few minutes and then carefully position. Press down whole side with hands. Spray other half of pad and hood and slowly roll on the second half. Amazing how good a new hood pad looks.
I use the factory hood pads. They seem better to me. YMMV.

And that reminds me, gotta replace one on daughters car. Rats.

Big Box Office supply stores carry it in their art departments too.

Drap everything or you'll be removing overspray for days.
