Default firewall insulation? fiberglass tub.

What can I use on my fiberglass tub to insulate the firewall?

anything readily available from the big chain auto parts stores?





Block sits about 3" off my firewall.

Lizard skin if you want something sprayable. Get the kind that has ceramic beads in it for heat insulation, you can top coat it with a sound deadener too.

Or there is a foil backed insulation you can probably get from Summit.

Both should be available through Summit

I use Thermo-Tec products for my fuel lines and starter. I also have a shield on my fuel pump that deflects the heat that is made from their material, and my gas tank is wrapped in it. The problem is that the material will not stick to your fiberglass tub. If you want to mount it you will have to attach it with some sort of fastener. Thermo-Tec's heat shield products are not cheap, but they work for me with my application.

I didn't use anything on mine? No issues in 12 years.
