Here you go:

Palmer Engineered Products - Aluminum Wool
Brixwax online GMT - Aluminum Wool
Piwel - Aluminum Wool

About $25 per lb...which would be a bunch!

I have pluged all visible holes/locations for mouse entry under my Classic with bronze wool (available at marine stores) saturated with silcone adhesive to form sort of a wool paste. Mice won't chew through the wool and the adhesive seals the hole so they won't push the wool aside. As a precaution, I place moth balls in places such as under the wardrobe where the water pump is, under the sofa near the battery boxes, under the bed and under the bathroom vanity near the water heater. Just playing it safe.
With all my precautions, I was suprised to find my power cable compartment filed with mice excrement - soaking wet and stinky this spring. It took multiple cleanings with various products to cleanse the compartment. I guess I need to place moth balls enmasse in that compartment when I winterize this fall.

many thanks

Shari -- thanks!

Romap -- the converter was the place we found our fried mice. It's warm, confined and full of rubber-coated wires.
