So I was just staring at my engine bay (like any enthusiasts loves to do) and noticed how crappy my hood liner looked. Its old, browning, very dirty, and cracked. I've done a quick search and I can't find any threads about removing it, just cleaning and repainting.... which is also an option for me.

Will removing it have any adverse effects? What does it do exactly. I assume it keeps the hood from getting too hot.

I've seen someone's sig with the hood liner removed and I hope he jumps in. I bet that removing it and cleaning the part of the hood under it would look alot better.

For a DD that occasionally gets pushed, how bad would it be to remove it?

You'll be fine to remove it. I think the guys who do Windstar swaps have to remove it for clearance. I believe there's a bunch of push-pins holding so just pop all of them out and it should come right off.

That's right... A bunch of push pins and lastly you'd have to unscrew that wire looking thing off the engine bay... See pic below VVV

Mine is looking pretty run down. I'm thinking of taking it off and painting the pony white and the rest black. Need to work on the taping skills though :p
I am thinking about this as well. Removal just seems so much easier and cheaper tho... :D

Lol it probably would be, but I've got plenty of paint from other projects and I like doing little things that most people don't notice, just people who are really into Mustangs :p
