3M Super weather strip adhesive in the spray can...It works well if you apply it very evenly on both surfaces then let them sit for 5 min and stick them together.

I'm in need of a hood pad replacement for my 85 300D. Just what is involved in removing the old and installing the new? Also, what should I expect to pay for the replacement pad and the adhesive?

Thanks.

The Hood Pad for my 190E was ordered from "The Parts Bin LLP." (www.thebenzbin.com) which cost $45.00. 3M Super 77 was subtituted for 3M Super weather strip which was not available in this area. The cost is about $10.00 a can.

I placed an old sheet over the engine and removed the existing pad as completely as possible. It's best to get help when placing the new pad, because when it sticks it's stuck.

The new pad has been on the car for a week and looks great.

Hope this helps.

In the shop, we use an old metal license plate to remove the old pad that is stuck onto the hood. It works without hurting the hood. Then apply the adhesive to both surfaces on an EVEN fashon ad give it about 5 min to set up. Stick em together the right way first for there is no second chances.
