timster2833 Ok thanks! I'm gonna buy 100sq. Ft. And see where it gets me.

DanTwoLakes Put large pieces in the middle of large open areas like doors and fenders. It doesn't have to be every square inch to do some good. Places like the floor and firewall could have complete coverage especially in a hot rod.

timster2833 Ok, I thats what I'll get then. Where and how much do you put it? It's a silly question but everything that I've read so far is conflicting. I've read everything from use it on the inside of the door skins as well as behind the door panels as well as every inch of the car to small strips here and there.. Can you shed some light on this? BTW. Thank you for all your help!

DanTwoLakes Remember, you don't need to cover every square inch of the car, especially the trunk, roof, and fenders. That is a very good price, and seems to be a good product. It is butyl based, so I don't think you can go wrong.

timster2833 What do you think of this for a sound deadener and do you think 100sq ft. is enough for an entire car? 1 New Bulk Roll Mat 100 sqft Butyl Rubber Use as Auto Sound Deadener Material | eBay

DanTwoLakes You can pay anything you want for sound deadeners like FatMat, Dynamat, B-Quiet, etc. Look for some that is butyl based as opposed to asphalt based. It will handle the heat better if you're in a hot climate.

You can use the DAP top and trim contact adhesive for anything inside your car and out.

timster2833 Ok, any recomendations on sound deadening material? Also what type of glue should I use for the carpet? I have the dap top and trim that you recommend, will that work for the carpet?
05-12-2013 10:55 AM
DanTwoLakes Obviously, if you want to put in a sound deadener of some kind, now is the time to do it. If it's a good quality jute pad, you don't have to add anything else as far as padding. If it lays flat, you don't need to glue the whole thing down, but on trouble spots like next to the trans. tunnel, you might want to glue it.

timster2833 Ok, here's my next question... I bought a molded carpet for my car, it comes with jute padding attached to it. What should I do to the floor before installing the carpet? Also do I just lay the carpet down or do I glue it down? THanks

timster2833 I just bought a set of Procar Elite Series 1100 Seats, anyone have any ideas of what to use for seatbelt guides?

05-07-2013 12:06 PM
timster2833 Ok thanks, I'll update with pictures as soon as I get the material in and get started.
05-07-2013 11:22 AM
DanTwoLakes 20 yards is a little high, but you'll need more than 10 yards, so it's better to have too much than not enough.
05-07-2013 11:02 AM
timster2833 Thanks for explaining it! I'm gonna order the 1/8" affter work. They want $50 for a 4x8 sheet. Next question is about how much vinyl would you use on a car like this to upholster everything. All the plastic trim, dash, 2 buckets and 1 bench seat, trunk and door panels. Just a guess.. I bought 2, 10 yard rolls amd if that's overkill is like to take one back.
05-07-2013 09:45 AM
DanTwoLakes No, it is not two plastic layers with foam sandwiched in between. It is called "foamed" because of the manufacturing process which makes it half the weight of solid PVC. It is the same material all the way through. It is also called expanded PVC. All you need is the 3MM thickness (1/8"). There are uses for 1/4", but for panels, that's overkill.

timster2833 So the komatex looks like plastic all the way through? They have that I just thought it looked wrong because I didn't see foam in the middle. Next question is, they only carry 1/4", they can order 1/8" am I better off with one size over the other?
