Back seat insulation
#1
Thanks to all that sent replies to my Speaker question. Now a new one, Looking to replace the padding/insulation behind the back seat. Can't seem to find something close to original. Does anyone have a supplier that they have used? Thanks

There was no separate piece of insulation behind the seat. All there is will be what padding is in the seat back itself. On a convertible there are a couple pads on top of the wheel house to protect the top well liner when the top is down.


When a man is in the woods and talks and no women are there is he still wrong??

I used DynaShield. To finish the cut edges after it was installed (which are present in the photo), I used a wood burning wand and ran it around the outer edge.

I just bought a big roll of 1/2" Jute and cut a piece that "fit" behind my back rest portion, You can kind of see what the shape needs to be.

Same here. 1/2" jute carpet underlayment with the moisture barrier works very well.

Here's what I did on my car. Insulate the heck out of it all over! Kind of wish I'd spent a bit more money and gone with Dynamat or similar, but this is 1/2' thick jute type backed with aluminum. I also fitted a piece behind the springs of the back rest, but no pic of that.

I used that stuff for insulating heating/cooling ducts.
The silver stuff, comes in a role at local hardware store.

My old 72 had jute with black thin plastic sheeting glued facing the trunk side. It was hung on seat back hooks. Its still there today, but I'm no expert.

I used some Dynamat in my car, my only issue with it is that it really STICKS!! I had to undo a little bit of it and it was a pain in the a$$!! As long as your car stays dry, there is no reason to over-do it!! Clearance in most areas is not a problem.

I used X-Mat on my Convertible, most if not all is covered with it. X-Mat is about half price compared to Dyna-Mat.
