Dynamat???

Has anybody ever used that Dynamat Sound deadner before, i hear good things, but i wouldnt know from first hand experience. Its a foam covered with aluminum, and Tracy used something like that on Trucks in project copperhead. I hear that the aluminum stuff is really good for vibration, heat, and noise reflection. If i had a whole bunch of money to spend then id go out and buy some of the Dynamat to see for myself, but since i dont and i hear from other people that you can get the same stuff from home depot or lowes then that sounds a little better. Does anybody know what type of stuff it is that i can pick up at the home depot, and if aluminum tape would come in handy???

There are a lot of stuff mentioned about insulation and sound deadening in this thread.

http://www.hotrodders.com/t1941.html

Should answer some of your questions. Hopefully somebody else can answer the rest of 'em as I don't have any experience with either.

Check out J.C. Whitney they sell; foil backed insulation/sound deadener that's about 1" thick comes in 5'x10' and 5'x24' rolls, spray glue and foil seam tape. The quality is good and it's easy to form to contours. I bought (2) 5'x10' rolls, tape and glue for under $50 delivered.

Peel n Seal

I used peel n seal and it only cost me $100 to do my entire interior roof and all. You get it from Home Depot in the roofing section. I put it up against Dyno-Mat and the ONLY difference is that Dyno-Mat has Dyno-Mat on the foil, other wise it was EXACTLY the same.

Hey Chevy guy, I just used the Dynamat on my 1968 Mustang convertible. I found the results very good. You'll need about two packs to do two doors. The doors close nice and solid with the mat installed to the outer skin. The stuff is heavy so if you don't mind the extra weight, it works good. Also the company stands behind the product, one box was short in size and I e-mail them with the problem and they made up the shortage within a few days. Nice when you deal with companies like that. Hope this helps, and sorry for the late answer, I've been in the middle of move to our new home. Joe

I considered it, but I didnt really want to spend $500 on the intial buy in. I would probably have that stuff sitting around for a year (most of my cars come with the insulation provided). I dont really get alot of requests for insulation, just the materials and seats and so forth. Maybe Ill put a link up on my website and if i get alot of requests, ill do the $500 buy in.

i did two layers of peel and seal on my roof, in all four doors, both 1/4's, tailgate, and three layers on the floor and it made a very impressive difference and only cost me like 150 bucks. my opinion dynamat is good stuff but way to expensive.many of the sound deadners above will work fine but i think that peel and seal is the most affordable
