Default Firewall insulation pad source

I have been trying to locate a source to buy a firewall insulation pad for my 55 Ford. MACS (ECKLERS) has been backordering me now for 2 months!
Has anybody bought one of these lately and where did you get one?
Must be some Ford parts vender that carries these in stock I would think? 55 and 56 would be the same.
Thanks for any info.
Steve

For my '59 I found it on eBay Motors. I've seen others on the restoration suppliers that are Kevlar backed but very expen$ive.


Just looked, I have bought parts from this seller. My pad came from him too.

Dennis Carpenter has a repro firewall pad for '55 Ford cars, but theirs has an ABS plastic backing. Their part # B5A-7001670-ABS. I am skeptical of how it would fit since you would need to bend those tabs at the top. $275.00 Whoa!
