Backstory:  I decided to try hood insulation and thought I had enough clearance to keep from scratching the air cleaner.  I even checked with putty and thought I had about 1/4 inch clearance.  After one drive, I can tell that I don't.  I managed to drop the air cleaner almost another 1/4inch by changing the gasket, but am pretty sure this won't completely solve the problem.  I have been exploring the possibility of making a little cap for the top of the air cleaner stud, (to hold the insulation up a little).  I made a prototype out of an inverted freeze plug (round edges, easy to polish).

Has anyone tried anything like this and succeeded?  I am concerned it will just bore a hole in the hood pad.

Who in their right mind would say

"The science should not stand in the way of this."? 

Science is just observation and hypothesis.  Policy stands in the way.........

Or maybe it protects us. 

I suppose it depends on the specific case.....
