Default Wheel arch liner reccomendation for Alloy body

I am at the stage of getting my Pace427 Alumina body finished and ready for a test run but I really would like to line the inside wheel arches with some type of protective material to stop stones and debris from denting the panels from the inside. I had spotted a couple cars in the AP factory that had a high density foam glued to the inside of the arches. Does anyone know what thickness and how much I would approximately need to do all 4 wheell arches?
Cheers
Scott

You can double check with Kirkham as to the size and quantity, but I got 6' x 5' sheet of 3/8 foam from the recommended manufacturer for about $30. That
should be more than enough.

Agree that the stuff Kirkham uses works great. Not sure where to buy it but they will know..

3m make an impact resistant tape. Its was a bit expensive last time I purchased some but your car looks worth it. The tape was originally designed to protect the leading edge of helicopter blades. It is a clear plastic film that sticks well to a clean dry surface. I have used it on race cars with great success.

I have opted for some 6mm EVA high density foam which I sourced from Clark Rubber. I wanted to use something that will absorb the impact of the those larger sharp stones (you know the ones that flick up when you have brand new tyre tread). I think the 6mm EVA and Sikaflex should work great.
Thanks for all the advice guys.
Cheers
