Heater Box Rebuild

I know we have many heater box rebuild threads here. What I'm trying to figure out is what did you use as replacement thin foam inside the box on the flaps?
Thanks

An adhesive-backed foam. I got some from Wurth one time and some from McMaster. Not as big a fan of the stuff sold at big box stores but it will work. Try to get closed-cell to avoid water retention.

I have not rebuilt my heater box so I cannot confirm this works for that purpose, but I have used Dynaliner for other purposes in my truck. It's closed cell so it does not soak up water and it is heat resistant (made for use under the hood). I've personally cut out a square, put it on a food scale, soaked it in water, and weighed it again. It does NOT absorb water and after 1 year under the hood it looks as good as the day I put it in. The adhesive seems to work well but if you wanted to be extra sure it stays in place grab a can of 3M spray adhesive from Amazon or any big box home improvement store.


Dynaliner 1/8" thick from Amazon link

I used the foam from amazon and it looks good. Maybe a little thicker next time to take up more gaps due to bent sheet metal. Otherwise good fit up and easy to cut to size.
