matts37chev Just thought I would share my 2 cars living in there over priced carport

Too Many Projects I don't know what the holes in the bottom of the fender are for. Possibly a strap to prevent flexing and cracking.

The bumper brackets are only held by the 2 bolts thru the side of the frame hat.

Seems to me there is a brace bolted thru the small forward holes in the flat frame section. I'll look at mine tomorrow.

Here is a pic of my brackets as I was chopping 3" off to move the bumper back for reference to the hole spacing.

I know these holes have nothing to do with the bumper brkts. So ur saying that there are brackets that bolt to the side of the frame "hat" and then bolts to the bottom of the fenders??

I thought the bumper brackets bolted to the side of the frame hat.

I must be missing something hsre

Just like Trophyman says, if you lay it out well, and roll it down good, nothing is getting under it.

I am very happy with it, and it was very easy to put down.

In fact my wife was impressed with how well it worked once we drove the car.
I think she was a little skeptical about it, probably because of how much it costs vs how thick it is.
But it made a big difference in the sound level.

I like the adjustable plate, good thinking

Trophyman I've used Dynamat on a couple pf projects with very good results. If the floor is clean, when you put the Dynamat down and roll it out, it adheres to the floor. after it's been down for a bit, it really sticks. I would be difficult, even for a leak, to get under the Dynamat.

Got the carpet and seatbelts back in also.
I removed the center seat belts, so now I only have belts for 4 people, I couldnt imagine 6 people crammed into the car.
(Plus, I can use those 2 extras in the 37, when I get that far)
I will need to pull the carpet back to do the footwells and firewall later, but I need to drive the car some more before summer is over
are there any issues with condensation or damp under the dynamat
