Targa Miata
July 12, 2011 - One of the items on my "fix it" list was heat insulation.
That transmission tunnel gets a bit warm. So I turned once again to Reflectix. It's basically heady-duty bubble wrap with an aluminum coating. It weighs nothing at all, is completely waterproof and costs about $20 for 50 square feet. Perfect. On this car, I covered the inside of the transmission tunnel on both sides and on top back to the gearshift.
I use a waterproof foil tape to attach it to the car. I've found that, as long as you give it a clean surface to attach to, this stuff will never let go. In fact, there's still some of the tape from the previous heat shielding stuck on the bottom of the car where I can't get it off!
