Inner wing insulation/part #?

Ok my second parts questions for the day, can you tell I'm about to place a big order from England?

I have a '97 300tdi and between the galvanized inner wing and the plastic wheel well liner there is a layer of insulation. Can you buy this on it's own? There are a few tears in mine and I'm sure it will retain water. I can't find a part number anywhere.

I imagine it may be very expensive if it can be found at all. I'm sure I could use closed cell foam in place of it, but if I can find the original stuff at a reasonable price it would be nice.

Wow that's cool. I've seen that stuff used in other cars before (Mercedes BMW etc.) But never knew that they put it on Defenders

My '92 certainly didn't have either the plastic liner or the insulation, maybe it was introduced with the 300tdi....

I imagine it's for noise reduction. The only bummer is the plastic liners still leave the outriggers and the bottom edges of the inner wing exposed so same rot problems. But otherwise it's certainly a step up.

On of my late model wings came with it!
I'd actually like to get one of the other side.
