5 Stars   Very underrated product.

Just buy it, you need it trust me.

This is a very commonly overlooked part. Finishes off the bay real well, and serves an important function.

Thank you guys for carrying these types of parts. Our little hobby is better for it.

Never imagined that after removing the old seal years ago that I would find a replacement. Well, Latemodel Restoration had it. Easy installation and perfect fit. Thanks LRS!

I had a problem with the installation and LMR stepped up and went beyond what was required of them, they have a loyal customer in me. Good product, good value.

3 Stars   Not 100% Pleased

This is a great finisher to the engine bay. It was shipped folded and it does have a metal strip in it so it was a small chore to get it to lay flat. Problem is when coupled with some new 50resto brand hinge cups it pushes on it a little more than normal and the firewall tabs broke on each edge after being on a day. Its not too noticeable but kind of dissappointing. Once you have it flat it does look good in the bay. I would recommend if you are not switching out the hood hinge cups.

Comes in a small box all folded up, but was able to straiten it out. I have a 4" cowl hood and it still left about a 1/8 gap from the hood to the seal where the cowl is located by the firewall but I'm satisfied.

The old hood seal was a booger to remove due to the fact that it kept tearing, but the new one was a breeze to install. I was also pleased at how such an insignificant piece added to the underhood appearance.

This piece looks great on my 84 convertible, but I was somewhat disappointed with the quality of the clips. they break real easy. I tried to install as gently as possible but two clips popped right off. The clips have straight prongs that don't fold over like staples, Once they pull out there's no getting them back in. They really should be held in like staples and a strip of rubber can cover the staples.

If you buy this part be extra careful with installing it. Otherwise it looks great once in the engine bay.

My only complaint was that 2 retaining clips fell of during the installation. The only way I was able to reinstall the clips to the weather strip was to do so with super clue. The clips came off while attempting to adjust the positioning of the hood seal to the slots in the firewall.

I brought this seal cause my original one was brittle and cracked. Fresh paint on the car the new seal gave that attention to detail i was looking for along with new cowl vent trim panel and lower windshield trim. Thanks late model !

It's a exact replacement. The only this is theta the clips that are attached to plastic are flimsy and if you are not careful, they brake off. I would regiment they invert them in with longer clips that hold the plastic.

Does not fit like oem but with a little finesse it will snap into place. But it does the job. Fantastic job on fast shipping and packaging. I always shop LMR because they have everything I need and good quality products.

Seal came folded and has a metal strip in it, so it would not lay flat, had to work on it so it fit the way I wanted it to.
