Is my paint going to start blistering or bubbling?

My '98 Mustang was in an accident a few months ago, and the hood was replaced. I told the shop when they put the hood back, to paint the underside and leave the black insulation off because it looks better. (I enter it in shows) Now I am worried that there may be blistering or peeling from the heat of the engine. Has anyone run their car with no underhood insulation for a long time?

I'd get the silver underhood insulation if I were you. That way you have insulation but it looks cooler than the ugly black stuff. If you don't, eventually the paint inside and on top of the hood will be damaged.

if u run the car for long runs at a time their is a good chance u will have lite discoloring in the paint as time go's on, or if u sit in traffic for extended periods this could also do the same thing, the key is put the insulation on while not showing the car then no worries mon.

I have seen where hoods have blistered and peeled up because of no under hood insulation. It is possible.
