Sound Deadener/insulation question.
#1
Has anyone tried this as a sound deadening/insulation material. I have seen some owners use it on another forum and it is supposed to be similar to the name brand dynamat, fatmat etc. that sells for big bucks. This is available at Lowes and much more reasonably priced.

If it's tar based you may run into a smell issue. Take a spare piece of metal, attatch it and then heat it up and see how it does.

Check out Eastwood's sound / heat deadener. Friend of mine just finished installing it in a 67 coupe so I had a chance to check it out. Very, very similar to Dynomat at 1/2 the cost

Depending on what you are trying to insulate, we used heating/AC insulation.
That "bubble/silver" material you cut to size found at most hardware stores.
Comes in rolls, just cut what you need and use 3M 8090 adhesive to stick it
down. We used it behind the rear seat and side panels. Plan to use it on the roof
when we replace the headliner. Can't remember what we used on the floor,
but it was a floor specific sound deadener.

If you read the reviews several people used it on their cars and like it.

DO NOT use asphalt based sound deadener in your vehicle. Unless you want it to smell like a tar pit.
ONLY use butyl based products. Of course Butyle based materials are more costly (Dynamat for example) but you can get a hybrid material that is much cheaper and doesnt put off an odor or not for long.

This product works well. Of course there is the spray on stuff too like second skin and Lizard Skin. I would use this on the underside of the car. but on the inside, under upholstery and carpet, go with a product like b-quiet or GTMAT.

You will be glad you did. Especially when you car has been baking in the sun a few hours.

I've done some research on this subject, do a search on this site for "Dynamat Xtreme Bulk Pak". I've decided on RAAMMAT, it has great reviews and the price is reasonable.

I havent used this but it looks like it may be a good product. It is Butyl based (not asphalt) so thats a good thing.
Keep us posted.

We have used DYNAMAT with extremely good results.

I do not recommend taping/gluing to the door. 500 miles after you tape that sucker securely to the door, I guarantee you are going to have to get back in the for a door latch or a window guide repair. ugh.
