When I read this I thought of an accidental discovery I had with fiberglass (blanket) insulation. I was working putting a hood scoop on a non ecomodded car and needed some filler. I saw some pink fiberglass insulation laying about my dads shop, and well you know...I grabbed a wad of it and soaked it with resin. You can form nearly any shape this way. Probably could smash it down and use it the same as cloth.

I bet if you went by a new house there might be some scrap insulation they would be glad to get rid of.
Honda...the economical, renewable resource.
