08-08-2014 07:32 PM Second (Final) Insulate / Sound Proof Coat
Concentrated on the roof, floor, firewall, and package shelf. There is enough left over to maybe do the trunk if desired. I also put seam sealer on the trans tunnel and second coated it. Time to turn my attention to the exterior.

Shot the first coat of the HyTech Sales SC#1000 thermal and sound barrier. One gallon down, one to go.

08-05-2014 07:36 PM Getting Ready to Insulate / Soundproof
Last night the second coat of primer went on. When done, I was amazed at how good it looked. It has come so far in only eight short years!

Tonight, I took care of some seam sealer on the wheel houses and lap seams on the floor. Dynamat was put in over the POR-15 I did a couple days ago. And I masked getting ready to shoot.

There were some spots that needed more cleaning so that was done first. Some grinding and then a wipe down with acetone.

I went with HyTech sales Aqua Prime primer and Sound Control heat and sound deadening. A bed liner type gun was purchased for the Sound Control but I was hoping the primer would go through a standard gun. When the can was opened, it was obvious that wasn't going to work.

As luck would have it, HF has a killer little roller and pan set for less than $2! A disposable brush and the primer was going on. While the coverage is complete, you can see in the photos that some areas are see through. I think I will second coat before spraying on the Sound Control.

With the interior panels well on their way to be upholstery shop ready, it is time to clean up and paint the interior panels.

The quarters never received their coat of POR-15 in the weld area. A quick scuff with some sandpaper and one messy brush session later and that box got a check mark.

On to paint and rust removal. A combination of a polycarbide abrasive wheel, a Roloc on an angle grinder, a DA, a spot blaster, and Evaporust. Hard, filthy work. I came out of the car looking like a coal miner.

The plan was to get the primer shot Saturday. The power went out around 4 PM and did not come back on until 7 PM. Hopefully I can get the primer on Sunday afternoon.
