  • Engine Box Insulation

    Can anyone provide some links/info for some replacement engine box insulation.

    The stuff on my 94 is in horrible shape and I want to tear it out.

    I have been unsuccessful using the TMC Google search but I am sure this has come up here before.

    Thanks.

      Thanks No1, I actually found that thread already but all the links were dead.

      I really want a the name of the insulation product or a link to it so I can purchase some.

      Overtons does not seem to carry the insulation that East TX used in his project 4 years ago. I have also checked West Marine with no luck.

          I looked for the stuff recently that I used to answer a question for someone on another forum and came up empty. You might want to call Overton's and see if they can point you in the right direction on who the manufacturer was.

              "DynaMat" is the sound dampening material used by high-end car audio shops. They put it in doors and back gates. Under or behind carpet and upholstering to reduce vibration from speaker. Comes in sheets of various size and thickness. I too remember a kit, but can't find it.

                I have seen the DynaMat, a bit out of my price range. Thanks.

                I think I found some insulation that will work.

                The foil faced stuff looks just like what previous people had used.

                  This is what I will be using next year. My foam from the factory has never stayed put. I am sick of it, so I will be installing this stuff.

                      Been told by many that that stuff does not do well, because the adhesive is a tar based product and as the heat increases, it's effectiveness decreases and makes a nice mess of everything.

                        Maybe I should have added not to use the adhesive they suggest. From my source basically you use a reverse rivet to hold them in. Think about the underside of your cars hood. The attachment device uses extremely strong adhesive to stick to the inner box. Looks like a short upside down nail. Stick the sharp point through the insulation, then cap with a inch or so diameter cap.

                          The installer used contact cement to secure my replacement insulation. Never had any trouble with it coming down.

                              Sorry I don't have a complete answer for you, however I purchased mine from a local RV store. It was the exact same stuff that Overton's was selling, and was half the price. I won't be able to get the information for another week, however will get the manufacturer and contact info for you when I get back home.
