Anyone know where to get the insulation everyone uses in their FH3's to line the cabinets? CSS has a version here: Creative Sound - Product Details but I can't wait the time to get it shipped from Canada. Is a similar product stocked at a normal store I could go to? Sorry, I know a random question

Have you done a search on "recycled denim"? There is a local distributor a couple of miles away from us. See if there's one by you:

Bonded Logic - OEM Solutions

I have not checked the price locally, but that's probably secondary unless it's just stupid.

Nice! I didn't even think about that. I found a couple local places I'll contact.

Thanks!

The stuff we use and that Bob sells comes in 200 ft rolls. You might find that a bit much.

Yeah I emailed one of the places stating I only needed 4 or so square feet. We'll see if I get a reply I'd just buy it from Bob but I need it sooner than waiting for transit (I didn't plan very well). OOPS!

You might check with upholterers/auto upholterers for something similar.

Oh ok so its a similar type of product? Can carpet padding be used as well or is that a no-no?

Usually a wool poly blend in the same thick felt format. Someone said (in the FH3 build thread?) that the stuff out 60s or 70s Fords or GMs was ideal, so you could check the local wreckers as well.

It's a relatively short drive from Monroe to the border - maybe you could meet Bob for a coffee.

LOL! I forgot to change my location, I'm in Portland. If I was still in Monroe I'd be down for a road trip I went to school up in Canadia (Trinity Western U) and always love an excuse to head to the Great White North. Its a little longer drive from Portland though
