      Looks good! I wish mine looked that nice! Mine has a couple rust holes near the transmission fill. I figure I will make them go away this year...

          gotta find some "friends" first!!! ha!

          got the insulation at Lowes - i was a little short on the stuff for the avanti, i 1st got some on ebay - it was better - had fiber insulation backed with air-foil. the stuff at lowes was just air-foil...

          no holes around the trans, chris. but found a rusty surprise under the back seat on saturday... pics on another post.

            My front seat floors are deacent, but I have natural AC in the rear... That will also be getting fixed.

                When you use the term "air-foil", I'm not sure what kind of product you're referring to. Is it basically foil-backed bubble wrap?

                  Be careful of the "cheap " hotwater tank insulalator you find at the hardware or building supply store. It is not the same as the insullation you can purchase from your
                  automotive supplier! Main difference (besides the price) is that it is not fireproof and catches on fire instantly when coming in contact with a spark. Using this crap is a good way to burn you car up! Any wiring failure will result in your car going up like a roman candle. So take the money you saved at Lowes and buy more insurance.
                  Just a friendly warning to those who don't know the difference.

                    after reading brian's post, i put a flame under the "lowe's" insulation - it melted but didn't flame - not saying it couldn't... it wasn't for hot water heaters.

                    anyway, i would recommend the 1st product i used on the avanti that you can get from the auto suppliers'. i used this product: http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/MIGHT...item1e61ef3b2b

                    no, i don't know the people in that company...
