Under bonnet blanket on Rover P5b

The under bonnet blanket on my Rover was missing,these keep the heat from the engine from damaging the paint on the bonnet.
I made a blanket from fire resistant wadding between black cotton sheet. The cotton was treated with a mixture of Borax and Boracic acid to make it fireproof. The sheet was held in place with thin steel wire. It tucks under the bonnet supports.
