My solution for my last two PT's has been to cut the insulation/fire blanket to make it shorter. It's usually back portion that gets ratty. This is usually when I upgrade the windshield washer nozzles as well using those that go on a Pacific.

There are several companies that offer universal under hood insulation kits. IMHO are much better then the OEM Chrysler or for that matter most any stock hood insulator.

Handy nice idea cutting the skirt to knee level... hahaha!

The Mopar part number is 4724800AC. I couldn't find one on the internet. However, the earlier 2002 version (4724800AB) appears to be available at this link for around $70 plus shipping:

If money is an issue, the best bet is going to be to try to find an undamaged one from a salvage yard where you can pull you own parts so it won't get damaged during removal. The problem is that most of them get tattered along the back edge. The one's on turbo PT's often get a little "toasty" and brittle due to heat.

Cutting the back part off is often the best solution as I said above. It removes the tattered part in many cases and reduces the weight on the part part where it often comes loose.

You can also buy universal hood insulation and cut it to fit. Summit Racing and several other suppliers have this. Some folks have even used thin silver insulation from Home Depot. Here's a link to some on Amazon:
