firewall insulation?
Posted by: GWLee ()

Just taking a shot in the dark here. But the picture shows the insulation on the firewall in my 60. I've been given ideas on what to use in its place, but going to put this out there.

Would anyone have this insulation in use able condition? Mine is kinda ratty looking with paint on it. One piece has the the corner cover torn making it junk.
They are about 43" long.

Bottom piece is about 5" tall.

The top piece is 6 1/2" tall.

Just would like to install what was there when it was purchased new!

Anyone have these two pieces?

Hi Lee, I made my own by using Auto Insulation called EZCOOL.
By using 4 layers and laminating it together with silly cone
and allowing for the crease or fold.
I wrapped the edges with their EZCOOL Tape.

Maybe try making two pieces out of EZCOOL and covering each
with restaurant thickness Alum. foil?

I put 3 layers under the back cardboard behind the back seat too.

Thanks Mike. I've had several suggestions on things to use. But was hoping some one might have this laying around, and wasn't going to use it.

Thanks for your info, something else to consider!
