Which product did you end up using for insulation on the floors & firewall?

Car looks great, and it's an unusual colour on a 510, can't wait to see it on its wheels outside.

Thanks Heinrich, it is satisfying to get the car up to this stage. Now just to put it back together - the fun part!

Hi Byron, the insulation product is call thermobreak. Its a product that Baz recommends. Its easy enough to use, the only issue I ran into was on the roof and hood liner bars. The insulation is a little on the thick side when it comes to that area.

The colour is always the hardest part. From the start I was always going to do a non metalic grey colour. Its just hard to narrow down WHICH colour to use. Lots of the modern greys have to much blue in them for my liking. I spray lots of greys, nardo grey, porsche GT3 grey etc etc. but I thought best to go for a lighter colour, hence the outcome.
