Insulation Questions

I ordered insulation from Hein and it is supposed to arrive today. I had some questions about what exactly I should insulate in the front cab area. I want to make sure I'm not covering anything that would get too hot and cause a potential fire. I am using Thinsulate AU4002-5 for the doghouse and firewall.

I have attached an image labeled A through G on various parts for clarification. Letters D, E, G and H are various pipes.

Any insight into which of these parts I should insulate is greatly appreciated.

Insulating parts A & B won't accomplish too much related to creature comfort inside the cabin. Given those two pieces are covered with plastic trim they're pretty much sound deadened too.

Can't speak for the other parts and tubes though---sorry.

Thanks JWA I appreciate the feedback. I was thinking about just lining the inside of the plastic for parts A&B with some insulation if I have some left over. Hopefully there aren't heat issues with that. I got my leaks fixed in the front so I think I'm about ready to start insulating.
