Does anyone know if it will hurt to remove the black cover under the hood? Will it affect the paint on either side of the hood, it is really a eye sore it looks all dried and out and was wanting to remove it.
My guess is you could probably remove it, especially if you make the scoops functional. That will help let hot air out of the engine area when the motor is shut off. That being said, I would not do it. Something else. Do not get engine cleaner on it, or use a pressure washer on it with soap. The soap will eventually come through, if you think it looks bad now, it will really look bad with white spots all over it. I know!! Had to have it replaced!
