I ended up just cutting out pieces of the original under hood insulation and used structural adhesive and glued them in place.

The dynamat is more sound barrier than a heat barrier...right?

I'd be fearful of dynamat getting hot, getting goopy and falling off of the hood. I've seen it come off knock sensors, it would seriously be a pain if it gooped the engine.

Just got a couple gallons of this and some matting in from Second Skin Audio. This Sludge is supposed to be good enough for exterior rustproof protection.

Looking at the bottom I think I might add a second layer of sheet metal, that should be all I need.
