How are pre-1940 roofs insulated for sound and heat?

The lame-brain cheap-skate that installed the headliner in my 37 Plymouth, P-4 Sedan did not install any insulation or sound deadener before installing the head liner. And I have to admit, I was the lame-brain that bought the car that way. I have investigated removing the headliner and have concluded the headliner cannot be saved if it is removed. So, assuming I can find a matching material for the headliner, what material should I purchase to deaden the incredible drum sound and insulate the roof? What is a good source to purchase the materials and can they provide instructions for a rookie to be able to install the stuff? Thanks for your advice.

I live in Michigan. I plan to drive to the GoodGuys show in Lowes Speedway in late October. Are there any kewl places along the way that I should consider visiting?

if it is a bow roof it can be removed and replaced. i like lizzardskin but there are many different kinds. just remember what ever you put up there has to stay if you glue it up and it falls you'll be removing the headliner again.

I like Dynamat. It's not the cheapest stuff around but it works very well and in my opinion is worth the price.

Check out Insulshield Technology 781-749-4971. They have it all. I used all their products in my 33 Plymouth. Did the entire interior floor, roof, firewall, sides, Heat insulation, panel deadeners, etc.

Less expensive than Dynamat.

Ya, I need good insulation myself. Just started a thread about it.

Shoot down I 75 toward Louisville, KY.

Wright Patterson Air Force Base Museum at Dayton. one LONG day, and you won't see it all. needs 2 days to actually see 75% of it. Excellent history.

Stop in the Bardstown KY area 30 mi south of Louisville KY to see the whiskey museum and breweries in the area. Jack Daniels, etc. A FULL day but much more interesting than you think.

Mammoth Cave National Park near Bowling Green, KY, the home of the Corvette Museum and Holley's headquarters. 120 mi south of Louisville Ky.
one full day of exercise at the cave, 1/2 day for Corvettes, Holley, etc.

a nice 150 mile drive east on 2 lanes, or toll way to......

Cumberland Gap at the west tip of Virginia, couple hours. If you're into warbirds, the brand new P-38 they took out of the Greenland Ice floe lives at Middleboro, KY air museum.

Oak Ridge, (west Knoxville) TN has the National Museum of Science and Energy, this is where some NUKE stuff got developed.

Gatlinburg/ Severville / Dollywood/ Clingman's Dome highest in TN 6400 ft./ Cades Cove, near Gatlinburg, TN. just east of Knoxville, TN. At least TWO days in Gatlinburg stores and doing the stage shows at PigFor. (the Eastern Branson) playing tourist.

and the entire western tip of NC for Smoky Mts. view. Most all day.. 40 mph!!! driving mountains... check it out for tourism beauty. Good tree color about then.

only 60 milies to.... Hendersonville/ Asheville, NC. tourist area, another day there

then only 80 miles to Charlotte NC.....

That ought to keep you busy for 2 weeks....

been there, done these...

had to figure all this out the hard way, took me 4 trips.... LOL.... glad to share my experience with you.

Have fun.
