I really dislike Great Stuff. You never can get the entire can out, its expensive, and very messy. I would never put it in a car.

I have been looking at a product that is used for insulating garage doors . It has aluminum foil on both sides and comes in large rolls. I saw it at Home Depot for about 25 bucks a roll. Has anyone ever tried it?

building materials belong on your house, not in your hotrod when looking for insulation be careful. it is heat migration you have to overcome. the wrong stuff will be as hot on top as it is on bottom after a few miles. bubble wrap foil, roofing seal and such make terrible insulation.

Shine is absolutely right. If you want to save money, find someplace else to save money and use products that are intended for the use you have in mind.

Many times materials supplied by the building industries are much better quality's (you know there's a building code for material standards) than what hotrod suppliers have.

It's just that someone found a material from some other industry and repackaged it, doubled the price and is selling the stuff to unsuspecting car builders.

Lizardskin is paint with glass micro ballons in it. Does it work, sure does. Just one can buy from Aircraft spruce in bulk and mix your own.

We have the net and search engines so anything thats made can be found and not from only one supplier. There's always someone selling the same stuff in better quanitys and cheaper.

i've yet to hear any results from home made lizardskin. and roofing materials dont belong inside a car. sooner or later the fumes will migrate out and then you have trouble. this i have seen and it is a mess trying to get it out once it has melted and bonded.

Isn't that what you want, the sound proofing bonding to the metal of the body so it won't sound tinny?
I've seen one metal body with soo much DynaMat installed, the body sounded like it was made from 1/2 glass! But I guess that's what the guy wanted. I wonder what it will smell like after it bakes in the hot sun?

I wonder what a car done with asphalt based roofing products will smell like after it bakes in the sun.

i doubt lizardskin is paint although it is laytex base. i have a 1/2 of a tub that is over a year old. it still stirs up loose. dont think some latex paint would last. i've talked with bob call who owned it many times and have used it on many cars now. it does just what it claims. i also have sat in a nice car that burned my eyes because of fumes. i'll stick to proven materials that work. dont think my customers would like me using snake oils

There was a long post on making a lizard skin clone, with the glass micro bubbles. It is a very interesting read with a lot of good info. I would recommend reading it. Mcmaster carr has stuff like Dynamat. Check them out. They have a ton of stuff that we can use. Read the specs on Dynamat and what they sell, it will surprise you how much they are alike.

A lot of the floor sound absolving stuff was asphalt based. At least German stuff was. It worked on heat transfer too.... I would say it was used because it was cheap. It was too long ago for me to remember if their was a smell. It is hot enough in Texas to make it smell if it did. The jute stuff would not smell, but I don't think it did as good a job.

Dynamat or cheaper stuff

Thanks for all the feed back,some good and some not so good. A friend of mine gave me a spray gun for lizard skin to use. I will look for posts on how to make your own and check aircraft spruce also. I just hate to make others rich from our hobby, but don't mind spending for good value. I think Dynamat is trying to get rich quick.
