I've just gotten through (yesterday) reworking my heater box with some 
foam that I found at the local Ace.  It seems like decent stuff and 
"auto" was listed as one of the applications.  It is more dense than the 
normal home insulating foam, has adhesive on one side, and is about an 
inch wide.  You can cut the stuff lengthwise to fit the edges of the 
flaps if necessary.  A ten foot roll cost me around $5.
