AcoustiHood starts with pre-cut heat insulation engineered specifically for your 1958-1962 Corvette. The heat shield panels are designed to lay inside the wells of your Corvette's hood and will protect the outer hood and paint from radiated heat. The panels are installed with 3M spray adhesive and sealed with a special seam tape. Insulation placement instructions are included.
The black ABS AcoustiHood panel then lays over the heat shield insulation. Manufactured of high temp ABS designed to tolerate temperatures up to 250 degrees. The AcoustiHood installs with factory-style fasteners designed to hold the insulation panel to the hood's inner structure. Drawing is for representative purposes only. Actual panel is black in color.
QuietRIDE Solutions AcoustiShield products are proudly Made in USA.

Is there lots of road noise in your classic Corvette? Would you rather be able to listen to your 8-track in peace? Maybe an AcoustiShield from QuietRIDE is the right fit for your Corvette. Like so many car parts companies, QuietRIDE started when Timothy Cox, the founder, needed something for the car he was restoring, a 1931 Buick Convertible. In 1977, after working on the Buick for a decade, Timothy decided to replace the firewall insulator, but couldn’t find a single replacement option on the market, so he learned how to mold fiberglass, and eventually friends started asking him to do the same for their cars. Over the subsequent four decades, Timothy’s side hustle turned into an LLC with trademarked product lines. Most recently, QuietRIDE acquired a water jet cutting system, which shoots a stream of water the size of a human hair at 60,000 PSI. Whether you need firewall insulation or a custom-molded hood insulator, Zip’s line of QuietRIDE Solutions has the perfect fit for your Corvette.
