I tried to find sticky push pins, what are those?

Hopefully this picture loads. It shows the cap, pushpin (with sticky back), and piece of insulation. Make sure to clean the metal surface doghouse where you want the pushpin. They don't come off.

Have you finished the job? Not much room for insulation. Did it fit ok? Got a pic of the finished job?

We're currently on the road headed to Colorado and giving all the insulation a good test in Kansas. It definitely is making a difference. The a/c improved and is actually cycling normally on the auto mode. We didn't have to use an additional fan to cool down either. Tomorrow will be an even better test in 90+ temps. Will keep you posted.

Wish I could download a pic, but connection is poor at best while on the road. Temp is currently 93 degrees and our interior is 81. We are right directly in the sun.
