I'm sure especally you west coast guys have seen how damn hot the hood gets after a shutdown. To hot to touch for more than 1/2 a second just seems to hot to expect the hood paint to be the same color after a few years of that. I'm going to remove the hood weather seal to see if that will keep things a little cooler under there. I wonder if a hood silencer pad would make it worse? Maybe opening the hood scoop a bit? Anyone got any ideas?
