    Can get into your lungs as well as make you itch ...if you line it with foil your house will burn down ....used more in houses than cars

    I'd go with the insulation type material.
    What does it taste like?

    Looks like old glass wool batts. Not quite as bad as asbestos but still very dangerous. The tiny fibres are spear shaped and lodge themselves in your lungs. Once they're there, thats where they stay. Make sure you wear a dust mask when removing it and not one of those crappy ones you've got lying around the shed. Go for a P2 minimum rating.

    Fibre batt type material was original in late Bay engine covers. Has a plastik sheet over it and a wire thingy to hold it in.

    Not usually in the doors.

    Warts grow on you too, doesn't mean they're any good.
    The splitty should come to me because I'm old & therefore I am not afraid of insulation in any form. :p
    Surely you mean that charming young couple with their T3.:umm:

    Beware of the insulation covering the heater tube under the van,
    I am sure they used asbestos on that.
    Also it's free to join SSVC forum,, you only pay to join the culb if you want to.
    Ask on there re the interior.

    As stated before, ANY respirable particles/dust are hazardous. If they are Bradford Bats, look up the MSDS (Material Safety Data Sheet) for correct handling/storage/disposal and exposure procedures. Definately P2 mask and a disposable jumpsuit would serve you well.
    Working as a Safety Officer in construction, I am constantly alerting guys about this stuff.

    With this kind of thing if you are unsure it contains asbestos, treat it as if it is! You never know.
