homemade dynamat

On my last car i used Dynamat in the entire car. then i used a jute product that I bought from this closeout dealer for almost nothing. The jute has aluminum on both side so i used it on the ceiling and the walls. On the floors i used regular jute over the dynamat so that it would not crinkle and pop when I walked on it. I had three sheets of dynamat extreme left over so on my new project I used the dynamat on the firewall and the floor. I need some more for the ceiling and the walls, but i am too cheap to buy another $350 mega pack. I thought about buying a roll of that self adhesive ice and water shield for $100 from Home Depot and then glue the aluminum covered jute to that. does anyone know if this will work?

There are many threads on using that product. I have used it in my '55 Chevy without the smell that others claim it has. Having not used dynamat I can't compare the two. It did help quiet the car down though. (For cheap too!)

Home Depot sells another product that is NOT asphalt based, and has no odor. It is sold in the AC duct section, and is a dense foam backed material with foil covering, and self adhesive. It's $18 for a 12"x 15 ft. roll. I did all of my floors, firewall with 2 rolls.
