    I assume that it is to reduce engine noise to the passenger area. Is 
 there any other reason that I'm not thinking of? I ran the car around town 
 with the stuffing out and it didn't seem like the heat was any different.
    I hope somebody out there knows more about what I'm doing than I do.

You could use that foil backed stuff JCW sells, but I don't know what you'd 
use the rest of the roll for. Maybe replacing the foil under the engine hatch?? 
The material is a kind of jute padding, used to hold heat in the plastic box, 
and to help direct air flow. You could also try one of the auto carpet places 
(trim shop) and see if they have any decent size scraps laying around that 
they could sell cheap. Otherwise, look in the Samba classifieds for a pair of 
those boxes, as I've seen some advertised. I hope this helps.
