Depends what you want...a box design or just a "wall off" to section parts of the engine bay from the heat?

Either way, fibreglass with proper epoxy resin will do the trick. Heat proof, minimum heat soak, flexible to work with and can make any shape you want. Just depends if you want to fiddle with it...can get messy the first couple of times you do it but once you get the hang of it, will be easy.
