Floorboard Insulation Pads

I'm interested in installing a acoustic and thermal insulation pad on the floorboard, can someone recommend a good product, I've heard of Dynamat at about $140, but I also noticed that Impala Bob's and Lutty's also carry a much less expensive product. Thanks in advance....

Dynamat is VASTLY over priced, there are less expensive alternatives. Check the thread in this forum on "Alternatives to Lizard Skin".

When i'm doing carpets back to stock in cars, I just use regular Thermozite on the tranny tunnel and the firewall, and regular jute on the floor. It gives good sound absorption and a nice cushy feel.

Some vehicles really have to watch the thickness because of foot room (the jute and the thermozite are 1/4 - 1/2" thick). Yes, Dynamat is very pricey. I've heard of a similar product available at most farm supply stores used in farm machinery for sound. It's a lot cheaper, and I believe is glue-in rather than self-stick, but a whole lot cheaper.

EZ Kool

I found a product you glue in called EZKool. Only .65 a sq. ft. A double layer on the floor and firewall make a world of difference.

This product looks promising, but I'm skeptical when I go to their "Comparisons" page and the price per sq ft. comparison with Dynamat is based on buying 150 sq ft of their product vs. only buying 36 sq ft of Dynamat. That's a little sleazy.

EZ Kool

So far I'm liking it! Yes I did buy a 200 sq. ft. roll, but I intend to double up on the floor and firewall and possibly the entire cab. Plus I have some other projects I'm helping with that will need some too.

The nice part is I can actually fit the actual piece, exactly, even in tight spots, before I spray the trim cement and glue it up.

Guess it depends on how much you need.

might give this a try
http://www.edesignaudio.com/product_...products_id=51

I ordered the e-dead 45 quite some time ago and it was out of stock.
Guess what-----they sent me the e-dead 80 for the same price.

Not saying this can happen to you guys, but apparently, customer service is important to them.

Zoom around the site for a bit, as they have specs and comparisons between their products-----also a decent sized customer review of their products.



I have Dynamat in my 59 along with 1/2" foil faced jute and that car is virtually dead quiet with the windows up. (bottom of car and interior floors also Rhino lined)

I have yet to see what the e-dead will do for the 66 Elky, but I doubt I will be disappointed (one day I will get this car put together).
