Spray on Texture for Underside of Hood??

I am in need of some help here - I am in the process of painting a Triumph Spitfire and the hood looked like a sack of walnuts - all full of dents and little bits of damage. I have hammered and dollied as much of this out as I can but even when the outside of the hood is done, when the hood is lifted on the car, the underside of it will show signs that it has been worked on. I want to spray on some sort of textured finish on the underside to hide the blemishes but I don't know what to use for sure for the caoting. I am worried that the heat from the engine will affect the coating, possibly causing it to melt and drip onto the engine thus creating the possibility of a fire. Is there anything in the way of a heat resistant undercoating or gravel guard that will work and be safe? ANY suggestions will be welcome. Yeah - I know - a Triumph ain't a real car to most roddrs but this is someone's baby and pride and joy. I am just doing the work on it and it's been a ton of labout, let me tell you. So any suggestions??

Check into a good bed-liner spray they make it several different ways ,
and some of it is fire resistant. http://www.scorpioncoatings.com/ .

You can get a rattle can of bedliner that will give you the texture you are looking for and you don't have to be concerned of it dripping, you would have bigger problems if it got that hot.

Another possibility is "rocker schutz". They used it to texture rocker panels before paint, in the 80s. It has a texture like a rough leather. I haven't used it since the ninties, so I don't know if they make it any more.

Yes you could use rocker guard or gravel guard but the sprayliner gives more texture and will hide more imperfections.

You could use a reflective heat barrier, an example is HERE. Some types have a peel and stick adhesive, others use your own fastening system.

Dynamat makes a spray that is nonflammable for under hood use, as well as their hood liner material.
