hood flutter foam

any preference? fusor 121, dura mix 4374?

theres about a 1/4 inch or more gap on the 51 hood brace to the skin, any ideas how to keep it clean looking while using the foam?

does either one have a adhesive property? meaning..if I laid a wet blanket on the top of the hood would it hold a little? my hood has one small area that is high,,light pressure lines it up

51 chevy truck

I would be interested to know as well. I have the same problem on my 72 Demon.
3M used to have the perfect product but it was discontinued a few years back.

The Duramix 4374 is made for that specific purpose and will not shrink or expand, also as far as adhesion going from memory (scary) it had a lap sheer of around 1500, not as good as the 4040 or the bonding agents that were 2800+ per square inch but still pretty good.

I have never used the fuzor and know nothing about it but have used the Duramix since it came out and have never seen a problem.

Also the Duramix is NOT Foam, it is a polyurethane and foam should never be used in this situation.
