missing spline block

Ditto, to this I think the body shop must have removed it when they had removed the front clam a number of years ago; no wonder my 'air' is so hot!

I suppose the entire huge gap left by the foam block's absence under the center spline will somehow need to be blocked and insulated in order for any of the other 'heat soak' remedies to cause any significant improvement in temp reduction...

Michael, do you have any suggestions? I'm mechanically somewhat incompetent and not sure where to go from here. Any ideas out there are greatly appreciated. I do have the insulation ready to go as you suggested for the cowls and duct...
