30's Factory Sound-deadening Removal?

Hello!

1936 Chevy Coupe. Factory (I assume) deadening guard under headline.

Does anyone have any suggestion about removing this:



Short of scraper and elbow grease? I have removed the large portions and figure I would ask before I go further. I am installing current sound deadening (Fat Mat) and just do not think it will adhere that well if the glue used (and the padding left over) is left with out a good attempt at total removal.

My fear would be the Fat Mat would loose contact down the road and droop. The stuff sticks to anything I have found (prep is always done), but figured I would see if anyone has run into this before.

If I missed a thread, I apologize and bring the link forward.

Thanks

Moving to body /exterior..Nope nothing else but lots of elbow grease..I have used a small coarse wire cup wheel in my die grinder to get a lot of that stuff off of there..then shoot epoxy primer (prevents rust) and then apply the fat mat or whatever..

Whatever approach you take to removing that stuff, use a good respirator. And not the cheapie paper masks. Get a good respirator with replaceable cartridges. You only come equipped with one set of lungs, and it's hard to tell what's in that stuff.

Thanks One More Time. I figured as such.

I have found the tar like glue they used soften when you use mineral spirits or brake clean on it. Then (away from the spirits & brake clean) I warm a 3" putty knife via a map gas torch and it is come off pretty well. Not red hot as I do not want to transfer anymore heat threw the body metal than I have to. I have a painted surface on the exterior. Plus letting the sun warm the exterior helps.

Yes a dual cartridge respirator is being worn. Actually I used a spray bottle filled with water to wet the broken apart areas to help keep the dust down like they use with asbestos. I also clean up about every 15 minutes. It's coming along. I am actually moving on the the doors and the rear quarters. They did not use tar like glue to adhere this, so it is much easier.
