I ended up just getting a pad from my local GM dealer. I picked up the giant, flat cardboard box and everything was uneventful. Mounted up to the hood perfectly aligned to the holes and looks good. No logo or anything on it (yet). Nice to know that you can still get a brand new one from GM.

I thought it was to protect the hood paint from turbo heat. On earlier carbed and hot air cars, the turbo sat right on top pretty close to the hood. That being said, I haven't had a pad for 20 years and never had any paint issues. I just wanted one for looks.

Was that the one for $280?

hello people: If that's the case my hood paint sucks and I do have the stock pad...

Sounds right - a new pad with logo & lettering looks good and even the plain pad looks better than most pads seen on other unnamed American cars. Unfortunately in the end, a lot of pads get dirty and/or frayed in time.

Probably need ShawnR to chime in here but the one I bought quite a while back from the GM dealer ( Part No. Insulator 25525977) was molded/formed like the original just no logo or lettering.

The dealerr hear said they would try to order it but no guarantees they could get it. It was 280. From what I have read on line it's 8 hole .
