the two foam strips about 8 in

the two foam strips about 8 inches wide and about 18 inches long that fit above the engine on a BBi Boxer...what type of material is that and where do you find it? I need to replace mine...the foam has aged and heat has not done it justice. It is crumbling. Thanks for any help here.

Ferrari UK have not been able

Ferrari UK have not been able to find any foam listed as a part in the rear hood of a Boxer. Does anyone know what the part number is of what I can use. It obviously get hot there and I need something that will not age prematurely nor burn.

Coach I.M.I. - on both my TR a

Coach I.M.I. - on both my TR and Boxer I have used a product available from the Whitney Catalog. It has a silver side and a foam side, and is insulation for this purpose. You can by it in larger pieces and cut to size. Use spray adhesive to hold to the deck lid. There are several thicknesses. The thicker option is a little too heavy. Try the thinner (1/2 inch, I think). You can order it on-line. Search for insulation at www.jcwhitney.com

Coach - actually, you can glue

Coach - actually, you can glue either side. I chose to have the silver side showing, which is not original, but likely is better from a heat protection perspective. I suspect the protection is more than adequate either way. Your choice.

James, I bought that stuff fro

James, I bought that stuff from JC Whitney after two Ferrari suppliers, Jeff UK and Dennis McCann told me that the foam was unobtanium from Ferrari. I glued the foam silver side out, and used Mylar tape to tape in around the edges. It looks great, and I really dont care if it is not original...the rest of the car is.

Coach - sorry for the delay -

Coach - sorry for the delay - have not scanned the Board for some time. Glad the insulation material worked out. The mylar tape sounds like a nice touch.

Enjoy.
