Bobcat/Pinto hood blanket
« on: June 12, 2015, 11:25:56 PM »
Does anyone know if a new hood blanket can be bought or made for my Bobcat? I never had a Pinto or a Bobcat with one in before! Fiberglass mat? Mine is ratty from age. Thank you.

Had one too along time ago , had two straps holding it place, the only thing I can think of is going to a home A/c repair shop that makes ducts for the a/c units inside , they have the stiff board type of fiberglass you may be looking for , or run to a wrecking yard and look for a town car that has the same and cut it down , I do know the Bobcats were very quite on the inside because they have extra insulation installed , nice

My blanket is held on by circular plastic holders about 2 inches in diameter (guess). When I get back to Pa. I will try to see what I can do. Thanks for the reply. The car is very quiet. I kind of wish I lived here in California as I see all these old rust free cars running around. I saw a family running around in a '57 Ford Ranchero unrestored and rust free!

Know what you mean , the early pinto had the straps , later ones had the ones you got, and I think the newer cars do also , like to find a bobcat wagon , those rode so nice
