I firmly believe that in most things you get what you pay for. vehicle insulation is no exception. I want my cars to be quiet, cool and warm. I spray a ceramic coating on the underside of my cars and the entire interior. I then cover all interior surfaces with Dynamat then some type of thermal barrier.
I've used Reflectix, the foil backed products from home improvement stores, and it's not bad. EZ Cool is a far superior product in my opinion. I have both of them here at my shop. The product from home depot is a foil liner with what looks like bubble wrap sandwiched in between.
EZ-Cool is also a foil backed product, but it has foam sandwiched in between. I've placed both on hot asphalt with my hand on top and there is a noticeable difference.

I know a couple of guys that used that EZCool and were happy with it. I also know guys that used those rolls of reflective insulation from Home Depot and we're happy with that. I have seen them both and they look the same to me but they say they are different, you just have to decide what works best for you.
Did you get a stereo?
|Today 07:31 PM|
I have some of the thin dynaliner and a roll of their tape, I had got from cartoys on a gift certificate for the 37.
So when I went in there last week to buy a stereo (they were having a sale) I also bought a big package of dynamat extreme.
It should be enough to get it close enough for that stuff.
However I would like to get some cheap insulation to help out in a few places.

So Matt,is your head ready to explode from of all the different insulation's out there. Each one saying "buy me, mine is the best!"

I actually performed my own, un-scientific, test using a piece of metal un-coated, then coated with just Dynamat, then with both Dynamat and EZ cool EZ Cool Automotive Insulation heat barrier and noise reduction for cars, trucks, classic cars, street rods and much more. Heating the bottom of the piece of metal the temperature with Dynamat and EZ-Cool dropped almost half from plain metal. I have the video someplace, I'll try to find it and post.

had to celebrate Woo-hoo!
Just finished working out the headers/steering linkage dilemma on my '39 and had to share with someone. Now if I can find a PS Pump bracket that works...

|Trophyman||Ur right, it was a post from somebody else. Thanks for the fuel line tip.|

I drilled an 1/8" hole in each end of the piece of fuel line, I fed the wires through it, placed it in the jam then the door. Then I ran wire ties thru the holes that I had drilled. Now both ends will not come back out and it just slides back and forth.
I am not putting bear claw latches in, you must have read a message that was left on my profile page by someone else.

I see from your profile post that your going to install bear claw latches. I did it on mine and gotta tell you, it wasn't a simple job. Had to cut the doors up pretty good to get the latches where they needed to be. I actually had the latches welded in and had to cut them back out to re-position. Striker in B pillar was no picnic as well
Got a lot of pictures of the process if needed.
