Need advice with Blazer Interior

Hey All

After 7 years in the Exterior Forum and lots of browsing I FINALLY got the exterior of my son's Blazer finished.... with LOTS of help from everyone, and the second time I did it it really FINALLY looks good !!!!!

Well except for the inside.... and I am sure if he were still here.... we would be looking at a full custom...but since its me finishing it now and my interior skills are to say the least limited.... its time to learn.....

Like MartinSR I too have a 5 year old pre-formed carpet kit (ACC)... any more tips on getting a good install ? Its a column shift two door so looks fairly straight forward.... I also have a new headliner kit, preformed polyvinyl liner with the cloth already installed... anyone done one of those ? Looks easy but always better to ask.... I have two mint front power seats in charcoal and will probably need to ask questions as I go about recovering the back seat to match....
Any benefit to using one of the sound deadener materials that I see out there, is Dyno Mat or one of its clones worth putting under the headliner, carpet, door panels ? Not going to be an audio roller, just an everyday Blazer to drive and enjoy as often as I can in memory of my son, any thoughts are appreciated,
Thanks.............. Mike B

The carpet is very straightforward, just take your time and keep smoothing it out until it conforms to the floor. Anything you add as a sound deadener will be an improvement, no matter what you use. Just remember that you don't have to cover every square inch to make an improvement. The headliner should be a board of some kind, and it should have trim pieces around the edges to hold it up. The trim pieces come off first, obviously. Here's a link to a thread that may help you with that: CLICK HERE

the headliner project

Started the headliner install today..I'l try and get pics as I get into this project.

The headliner arrived a few months ago... I ordered Dynamat Extreme on Amazon and the pricing appears to be the best available. The Dynamat cuts easily with razor knife and a straight edge... and a scissors for any curved areas....I used a small roller, some plastic putty knives, and a filler spreader as tools for tucking the edges under some of the Blazer roof edges.. pre-heating with the heat gun helped a LOT..... but be careful not to blister any paint on the roof... I thought of that as I burned my finger on the hot aluminum foil facing.... no paint damage !!!! Halfway done and looking ok....

I need to do a little more research and see if that big flat roof needs more sound proofing..... probably be a week before I can get back at it but nice to make some progress !!!! Mike B

Easier than paint !!!!

Took a few hours tonight and finished the Dynamat extreme install on the roof...a LOT easier than the 7 years it took to get the paint right !!!! So roof panel is 99 % covered..... I probably should take it for a ride and check out the sound level......

Has anyone used the Dynaliner on top of the Dynamat Extreme ? Worth the effort for an occasional daily driver ? Or is it overkill....

So depending on that decision, headliner in next week...

Completely covering the entire roof was overkill, adding more to what you already did is a waste of time and money.

Carpet In

So I already had the dynamat so went for overkill on the floor too.. the Carpet Kit fit amazingy well once I got over the fear of trimming it...ACC did a nice job manufacturing the carpet.... the mold press they use leaves pretty obvious lines on the backing material... cutting along that line and leaving about a half inch extra REALLY made the job easy. I used a pick to locate the seat bolt holes and then a hollow leather punch made it EASY to punch the holes without tearing up the carpet at all.. slid a small square of plywood about 6" x 6" and used the awl as the center mark... I used scissors to trim the rug found it more precise than a razor knife for the curves up under the dash. Time consuming but a worthwhile project for anyone with some patience...

Next up... the headliner this weekend...
