Just have a few quick question about insulating the engine box. Did you use any reflective (thin silver coated stuff) on the inner front radiator section ?
Also after your insulation job was done. How much reduction of heat was there in the interior ? What about sound reduction ?

You are not going to stop all of it. It will be cool when there is any air circulation going thru the DH, get stuck in stop and go or parade type traffic and it will build heat up.I'm using just the Mitey Mat stuff and it does work well. maybe with the addition of the thin stuff it would be better?
