Lots of insulation supply houses sell the raw materials if that is what you are asking. You can buy cloth, insulation, wire mesh, hog rings, hooks, the whole thing and DIY or find a local guy. Where are you? That will help a lot.

There are a few places that make them up for marine engines, and may well have the pattern for your engines if they are somewhat common, DeAngelo in Ft Lauderdale and Marine Exhaust in Alabama come to mind, I have seen their stuff on other boats and it looked really good. They ship to you, you don't usually have to have them install unless custom measurement is involved for an unusual engine or install.

Heatshield tape amd blanket seem fairly common, but glass rope can look much nicer - especially when wrapping pipes with bends. Any good sources of that?
