If you’re serious about restoring your classic car, installing a firewall pad/insulation is one important aspect that should not be overlooked. Original firewall pads break down over time, reducing their ability to block heat and noise from entering your car. Additionally the natural fibers in older firewall pads will give your car that distinctive “Old Car” smell. Mark Simpson demonstrates how to replace the firewall pad and explains how the insulation reduces heat and noise that may transfer to the interior from the engine bay.
