    My Amphi is getting some EARs

    Just received my upholstery kit from Dorri at
    Glens Automotive NY{518-725-4298}. Looks
    to be of very high quality and thicker than other
    materials I've seen. Colors are close to original
    (apricot & white) with white heavy duty stitching.
    Also have new convertible top and rubber floor
    mat to install. Amphi will look brand spanking
    new inside before year end. Since I'm going to
    have White Post Restorations VA (540-837-1140)
    sleeve my brake cylinders (tired of limping
    around with only my hand brake to stop), I
    reckon it will be a good time to do all that
    interior stuff too.
    Whilst flipping through a trade journal I stumbled
    upon this new stuff called "TUFCOTE TBK"
    which is apparently some new acoustical foam
    for engine compartments. Its designed to be a
    durable, puncture resistant urethane foam (?
    to 1 inch thick) that is "both decorative and
    functional." They also claim it is moisture, oil,
    grease, and engine fluid resistant. It is said to
    readily accept adhesives, tapes, and is easily
    die cut or laminated. I called the company and
    requested a 4 x 5 foot piece to try on Amphi's
    engine/tranny compartment. I have no affiliation
    to this company but love the name -
    E-A-R Specialty Composites, IN (877-327-4332).
    I'll keep you posted on the results... but don't
    expect them to be quick... I work at Amphi's
    pace... slow-n-steady.

    Although this foam is resistant to everything, it may
    still hold rust causers, like water, to sit behind it.
    Just a warning. Be watchful.
