Maybe I'll add some foil to that?
Have you considered aluminum foil faced bubble insulation?
Getting wet under the hood/bonnet shouldn't have any effect on it.

Don't know where you'll find it locally.
Here's one of many suppliers from a google search:
ZX-INSUL radiant barrier foil insulation

Here's a thread on how I used some as a radiant barrier on my Prius.

And another.
