The polythene clad insulation which goes over the gearbox of my Vitesse has finally disintegrated completely. I’m sure that there must be a better solution to heat & noise insulation nowadays. What do others use in its place?

orrrrr how about my budget option: spray on polyurethane foam! I then topped off the top of the cover with an extra layer of stuck on secondhand carpet all of which has been pretty effective.

I used Dynaliner under my original cardboard tunnel on the Vitesse,i used evo-stik contact glue just to make sure.

It did make a lot of difference to noise and heat.

I used Dynamat stuck to the outside of my gearbox tunnel, hidden under the carpet. That way it can't come unstuck when hot and droop onto the gearbox.
