Hood liner and Whipple install

Do you lose the Hood Liner when doing a Whipple install? Curious on clearance

As mentioned before it will rub. Mine does not rub hard but it will eventually rub the finish off the top front of the Whipple. I took a few strips of packing tape and put it on the top of the Whipple where it rubs. When I enter it in a car show (not many of those around here) I remove the tape and clean up the residue with some cleaner. Still looks new.

When I had mine it just touched, no marks were left.

I have a little rub mark on the hood liner where the whipple rubs. Can't see it unless you look for it.

Mine rubbed hood liner and coolant cap. Removed liner and lowered coolant reservoir slightly and fixed both.
