    FWIW, T Rutland's gets the foam in from time to time. I remember he had it on sale at some point right before I sold the Mondial.

    I don't recall the price, but I remember thinking it was reasonable.

    It may be worth checking with him to see if he has any left.

    Hi Ted -

    What's the thickness of that foam? I'll guess .......................................................
    two inches :):) Mine is 2" and it's OEM (89T -93T) from RICAMBI. Your's looks to be spot on !

    Cheers mate,

    Hank

    I didn't measure, Hank. I think your guess is spot on. I'm looking forward to the install. Now, just need to find the leather tool pouch and this area of my car is intact.

    Thanks buddy.

    Hi Ceb,
    What are the results of your new foam? It looks great but did it handle the heat? I need
    replacement, and can probably find a generic foam supplier here in so cal but I would need to run around, I might be better served calling Bob's?

    I also noticed upon inspection of my A/C condenser there is dead foam around the hoses.

    thanks

    I have Ceb's foam on my radiator. Works great and I'm glad I have it.

    Foam is also required on the sides and bottom of the radiator. Bobileff Motorcars in San Diego has the complete kit. Don't know the price.
