How to attach a hood pad?

I got a hood pad for my 72 250 and now I have to decide how to attach it to the hood. I'm leaning towards glue or caulking.

It worked for me

I used 3M brand general trim adhesive. Follow directions and you should have no problems.

Happy Motoring

I guess this is it..

http://www.peachparts.com/shopforum/showthread.php?threadid=46288

Basically it says to use a whole can of Super 3m spray adhesive.

So was it an option to get a hood pad with a new 250 or was it just not an issue at the time?

If FastLane, host of this forum, doesnt carry them - hood pads are generally all over e'bay car parts- mercedes.

The waffle design is probably the most effective, you can buy one on e'bay at/near $35.00 - but am thinkin DIY'ers would have equal success with any high quality sheet of thick foam rubber, possibly gotten at building supply for less than $12.... thats probably what e'bay aftermarket entrepreneur/sellers do anyhow.

I BELIEVE that the hood pads only came with the 4.5's. They might have come with the 3.5's too but I KNOW all the 4.5's had them. I don't think any 6 came with a hood pad. How much does it ACTUALLY decrease noise? I took mine off cause it was falling apart and NO WAY am I spending $95 (with shipping) on FOAM!

Well I don't have a decibel meter but it does seem to cut it down by maybe 5 decibels.

They also used hood pads on the 123-series 240D. An alternate insulating product is sold by dynamat (http://dynamat.com/); reducing road/engine noise makes your stereo sound better. I haven't tried it, just learned about it yesterday.

tried to use the 3m adhesive - worked poorly. talked to my indie - he uses liquid nails with a caulk gun applied in a crosshatch pattern. tried it - works like a charm - not a single air pocket to report.
