    Default Firewall replacement?

    Are there any materials available to replace missing/stuffed firewall material? I've heard of "spray on firewall." Does that really exist, and is it any good for anything?

    Thanks everyone!

    I take it you mean the plastic that cracks if you look at it and the foam underneath not the actual steel firewall. if so you could probably work some way to contain that expanding poly urethane foam and then paint some thick plastic paint over it. If it is the steel fire wall then I doubt you can spray on new steel.

    Oops. . Yeah, I meant the plastic covered foam. I didn't realise the steel itself was the firewall.

    My main concern is finding something which is heat/fire resistant, and which has some insulatory properties.

    I have some of the original stuff in my parts car, but it's such rubbish I'd rather eat it than try and fit it to my car.

    Maybe look at some stuff thats on the bonnets of new cars these days? or is that just for sound deadening?

    Or look at an alternative non-car product? Might be worth a call Wormald or other fire people etc for anything they know of?
    Gone to the CAMs web site?

    (sorry about the lack of actual answers!)

    No idea if this stuff is any good, or indeed available in your neck of the woods.

    But if it is, it might be worth looking at the sound deadening/insulating stuff that's used as an underlay for laminate flooring. About 1/4" thick, with a tinfoil(?) face.

    But check on it's heat-resistance.

    Clark Rubber sell an aluminium foil backed foam sheet (large roll) that you can fit using velcro tape fastening. Problem is getting it around the various pipes. Also, you don't of course have the moulding of the original for the blower fan (505) so you have to approximate - but it works reasonably well.
