    I didn’t use heat. I specifically used “fatmat” in mine. Adhered great.

    But just after the bell I had a splice and it ran out of there over the last few years.

    Mine was foil with some insulation on the back side. It was DEI brand.

    I put DEI fiberglass heat tape on about 8 years ago. Holding up well. Very thin so access is as good as it can be. I did one car with 2 inch tape and bought sheets for another car. Not a pretty as the fancy stuff in the pictures above.

    DEI was one that I was looking at, I opted to go thinner with this stuff. It's more of a sound dampener I think but should reflect some heat. Dynamat is the name brand of it, guess we will see if it holds up! This did have the "Tar backing" though and I let it sit in the sun to get playable. All I know is the stock stuff thats in there turns to literally dust and I could not deal with it lol.
