    More importantly - for those who have insulated the inside of the doghouse, did it make a vast difference?

    I used a Dynamat foil but only to stop any panel rattles that might occur.  My plan is to get an external cover made for the doghouse with a zipper to access the engine when required.

    It makes a huge difference in temperature of the doghouse.

    The doghouse can be touched all over, but at one spot (badly adjusted insulation) - I have not measured the difference, but it is almost between "hand-warm" and "hardly-touchable".

    Rattle was not my focus.The screw's should take care of that Smile

    Where would one find "commercial duct insulation" and what did you use to keep it in place?
