Re: Hood insulation / engine heat thinking

That could well be, especially since I originally bought the car used
and so have no way to know what happened to it prior to my owning it. I
guess the main reason I was thinking of engine heat was just because it
was in about the exact right place to have been caused by such.

If it wasn't heat that got it, then I won't need to worry about it
happening again, assuming my new paint is done well enough.
