CW... just go to Parts.NalleyGMC.com. Plug in your car and search the microfiches there. If they have the part, you'll find the number

DO NOT USE A BRUSH!

The liner mat is quite fragile and brushing it will pull up the fibers and cause the surface to fray.

Just try hosing it and maybe dabbing with a cloth (NOT rubbing).

So simply keep it installed, use a low pressure water hose and no rubbing is what I am gonna try this weekend.

Yes, the barbed fasteners MAY be reusable, but in most cases will not be. The (reputable) dealer I bought my replacement liner from let me chat with their detailing crew and they said they use just water. JUST water with no scrubbing. No pressure. How well does that work? Dunno because I had some pilling already.

I may attempt a dressing this summer - the same stuff I use under hood on engine components. Will see how it looks.

I used a vacuum cleaner with great results. No brush attachments. Just the flat hard surface floor attachment on a shop vac. Mine was not extremely dirty though.

I took mine off when the bottom of the hood was painted with the giant Punisher head. Been running without the liner for years with no issues.

On the wife's Sky, they did the Green Dragon painting on the hood liner. But first they impregnated it with epoxy paint. It is basically solid and high gloss now. It still functions but its impervious to dirt and can be cleaned and waxed like any part of the car body.

I am not in the business like you, but I do recall that being the case on other vehicles. Not just GM cars, but all cars that have hood liners and engine covers.

Don't be too quick to toss factory-installed stuff without first understanding the risks. You could get away with it for many years until the day you find yourself in a traffic jamb for numerous hours on a 105 degree day. The next morning you realize what happened to your hood and kick yourself over it.

That is why I keep my cars stock....within reason of coarse.
