Heat soaking through engine cover fix

Really noticed the heat soaking through the engine cover on my Ford E350 on our last trip after we stopped for the day. Ford supplied a noise dampener with metallic shiny cover to reflect heat but that was 1999 technology. I installed Thermo-Tech 13590 24"X48" adhesive heat barrier today and the difference is really noticeable. After driving for 20 minutes I parked it and checked the cover by touch this morning after it sat for 15 minutes. Quite warm to the touch. Just did the same thing after the installation and it feels barely warm. Really big difference. Product goes on easy with some careful planning you will have some left over. I put the new over the old and it stuck well. Anything less than the 24"X48" won't do a Ford E350 cover in one piece. Big difference in price so shop around for the best deal. My cost was $63.00 on EBAY.

Thanks for this tip!! We installed ours yesterday. Went for a nice long drive today. What a difference! Noise and heat from the engine are much less. Actually, quite an improvement.
