I've attached an image, and a website - do any of these style felt proofing materials look correct? I'm assuming what's fitted in the image is correct?

Also, the what I'm assuming to be asbestos heat proof panels on the inner arches near the exhaust manifolds, is there a good solution for them? Were they white originally? As always, correct factory look is desired!

Chris.

Chris, hoping you can tell us (!), the bitumen/felt panels seem about impossible to find, maybe more-so in the US than in Europe. Hardest to match seems to be the fully saturated panels on left/right of the engine bay, and the choice you have here are about as good as I have seen for carpet underlay.  It seems that bitumen in the interior even became illegal in some places (Australia). I've seen some Mercedes/Fiat places in Europe that hint at having near-misses of bitumenfilzmatten. But otherwise, bitumen seems to be targeted at big orders for construction, I could not finding a friendly source in the US.

Yes, the heat panels are white asbestos under an aluminum frame. I ended up using solid aluminum panels only---getting the original look on the centers would be an exceptional touch.

...When I needed a Heat-shield for a Reserve tank, Near the Headers, on the Passenger side...I went to Target, and picked up a 'Cookie sheet', they happen to be 'asbestos' or a ceramic, sandwiched in-between 2 aluminum sheets. They Come in Small, Medium and Large Sizes, and are quit Inexpensive! They Insulate VERY WEll ! And NO Body Knows where they came from.
