Today in the Port Macquarie highway servo I saw a charcoal 4.2 Patrol and trailer with OE tyre cover and it had some neat looking foil insulation material lining the inside of the vehicle. It was attached by suction cups to the windows.
I'm looking for a similar type of material to line the inside of the ute cabin and was wondering if anyone had any clues as to what it's called and where I can source it?

You can get it from any hardware.

Kev has the answer for you workhorse, twas me you must have seen but don't tell no one as I was visiting the girlfriend, I was supposed to be "working" in Newcastle. Hahahahhaha not really, the outlaws live in Pt Macquarie.

It is good stuff, made by an older couple up here in Brisbane, I have had it for about 18mths now and reckon it is well worth the money. I paid about $230 for all the rear windows in the GU.....much cheaper than tint and 100% blockout with cooler temps inside to boot.

Cheers, Trevor.

It would be great for the rear side and back windows to keep the sun off the fridge when camped... Michael

It is Michael, also good for keeping the light out your eyes when camped in the vehicle like I do.

Kev has the link to the stuff in the reply above.

Cheers, Trevor.

A very cheap foil insulation= just get a good quality alfoil, wet the inside of your windows, put alfoil on, smooth it up, & BOB is your uncle

I use one of those windscreen shades, cut it to size and use gaffa tape to secure it. I get 3 years out of one of those shades then simply replace it with another.
