Under Hood Insulation

Has anyone gotten rid of the under hood insulation and replaced it with something else? Have any pictures?

I messed mine up with a pressure washer and it drives me nuts every time I open the hood or think about it. I was thinking about some kind of sound absorbing material or cutting out some pieces of aluminum for the flat areas and having them powder coated to match my IC Pipes.

Pulled mine off a few months back looking for more noise. No difference at all. Found a mouse nest between that and the hood though! My truck sits a lot

It's just a dirt collector so I always remove mine from all vehicles.
