Hello badger the soundproofing came with a spare bonnet I bought, my dads car came with it as well. I bought the bonnet for the soundproofing because I thought they all had this at the time. I've only seen one other set, the guy was selling his car I tried to buy them off him but he wasn't keen. I have enjoyed restoring the Pi especially the ups not so much the downs but got there in the end.

I think only the P I's came with bonnet soundproofing. The bonnet on my TC came off a PI. The only one I've seen.

My old K plate 2000 had the sound pads under the bonnet, as does my PI.

I've never had any big saloon under-bonnet soundproofing - and I've had multiple 2000/2500 and 2.5PI cars!

I wonder if it was an option?

Cheers,
Mike.

The parts book list them for PI models only. Seem to think they are perhaps only on the early cars with the side to side slatted plenum intake grille.

My PI has it and the cast alloy plenum jntake. I have a spare bonnet for the estate off another early PI with the pads on still too.
