I noticed my instrument panel, side covers and hood all seem to be wearing a nice shallow grove in them from their chafeing against each other during use. You don't really hear any vibration, but the evidence is there just the same, in the way of shallow worn grooves, and powdery residue. Think I am going to install some strips of rubber in these areas, or perhaps some of those peel and press rubber bumpers that you can buy in various sizes, shapes and thickness for putting on the bottom of lamps and other odds and ends to prevent scratching etc, as sold in Home Depot and Wally World. Anyone else have problems such as this?

I bought some 1/8" or 1/4" clear vinyl tubing, cut it down the center with an exacto knife and put it on the hood. Problem has never resurfaced.

Chipmaker,

My Craftsman LT1000 has the stick-on rubber "bumpers" on the inside of the hood. They are about 1 1/2 - 2 inches long. Should be able to get them at any hardware store.

Boy, you guys sure know a lot about adult diapers. You might be offending some of your senior contributors with your comments, though.

Boy, ain't that the truth. I hope they don't feed me that yucky mushed up food and give me bottles of warm milk that tastes like cardboard. I want to be breast fed in my old age, darn it!

Back to the hood problem....


Some of the car makers use a silpery tape in this type of case. It's kinda like a vinel tape but a little more slick. You would put in on the area where the hood rubs, and it will not mark the serfice.
