Hey Mike,

I used Reflectix on my Nasty Boy along with a bunch of other stuff.  You
can see what I did here:  http://forum.britishv8.org/read.php?13,8264  Just
as important is plugging up all the hot air leaks in the firewall.  Put a
droplight in the engine compartment and use rope caulk to seal all the
holes you find.
