If I were to do it over, I'd save up for the real thing but I could never find it for sale when I was doing my hood. I would still put the heavy alm. faced absorbing sheets (not the same as dynaliner) on the hood first, then put the OE mat like it's suppose to have. My hood is free of any "tinny" vibrations but the big alum. foam based Dynaliner doesn't look too good, plus it's hard to cut and glue in properly. I'd also argue that the original stuff is porous and will likely absorb sound better, esp. when combined with the vibration absorbing mats that are stuck on the metal itself.
And one other thing, I'd buy the Rattle Trap (Fat Mat) brand stuff for the metal panel dampening. I have tested and used it myself for many years. It is the same as Dynamat but with a different name on it. It is a LOT cheaper because you aren't paying for Dynamat's marketing. It has held just as well or better to ceilings and under the hood applications. I always apply it with a heat gun to soften it up and make it super sticky. Heat the metal up too and slap it on.
What you see is not rust, it's just stains from the factory glue. This was cleaned thoroughly and was smooth to the touch but I could never get the stains off, not that it matters one bit since glue went over top of it. I had these pieces left over which explains the smaller pieces; I'd prefer to use one large, longer piece up front but ran out. You don't need to cover all the metal with the rattle trap. The hood was much more solid sounding after this and sounds 10 times better when closing it.
