eipoe Yeah, you can get that Ice and Snow stuff at Home Depot. I've heard it does a good job and relatively cheap, well when compared to Dynamat. It's also suppposed to stick like crazy. Like once you let it set up, that's it, there's no getting it off. I went to Home Deopt and checked some out the other day. I found some stuff made my GAF called Weatherguard I was going to buy some until I smelled it. Man, this stuff reaks, I mean REAKS like tar. So here's my question. Has anyone used this in their car? and if so, does the smell go away. Cause the last thing you want is to spend a month scraping this crap off your floor pan cause you can't stand the smell.

Thanks to all who reply!

Mav There are two types of foam , First , the kind you buy at home depot, It must react with moisture or air in order to cure

Second is two part foam. It chemically reacts and cures...

The best ive ever used is called handi foam

Heres a link

Click the "Handi Foam" icon, then "Handy foam two part compound"

Redshiba Go with the Peel & Seal !! I just used it in my 51 Chevy Pickup, It works great!!!
I got it at a local roofing supplier.

Maverick I plan to use Peel and Seal. Its sorta like what your talking about, its a roofing material that has a shinny alum. then tarie rubber type of material with a peal off back. Turns the echoing "BOOONG" to a quiet "thud". Its pretty thin and cheap. Great for lining doors, fire walls, roofs. I have heard you can get it at Lowes or Home Depot. I have been getting it from a roofing supply company. Later! My two cents!

American_chevy Have you checked out or their mags, they sell Heat Shield Insulation that you can buy in bulk rolls they sell 4-ftx24-ft for $65 and a 4-ftx48-ft for $120. JC Whitney has almost everything you would want for that job or resto. Good luck, hope you find what you want at your own affordable rate

Centerline Street Rodder had a story a couple months back about a spray on insulation specifically made or cars. It's called Cool Car Ceramic and is only currently available from RB's. The link below well provide the specifics.

Pontiacman Hello Holloweenking, I've done monolithic domes before my foam has been around for 20 years, Resin
Tech manufactures it I've been spraying 12 years
over 25000.00 to get equipment here. Its a good sound deadener but better insulation material my product is r-7 per inch thickness, I've done vans
campers, artists also use for bronzes(life size)
It does completely set, 3-inches on sheet rock, 2 ft centers I can walk any where without falling through,don't have to walk on trusses. I'm almost 200 lbs.I have also done boats, cold here in Montana, really keeps heat in,
sound deading is just a extra quality it creates.

Halloweenking Pontiacman, Foam Seal is a two componant PUF system, its sold for marine and aotomotive uses it came out about 6-7 years ago when the europeein' racing (hondas and such) became popular in the USA. Its great stuff you should check it out and let me know. I've used the foam you use, I live in a moderate sized monolithic dome that me and a few friends built, we had to shoot that stuff up before the shotcrete.

Pontiacman Before doing anything dry your project, don't want to seal moisture in .The SRRAY foam I work with you don't buy in a store, it takes a porportioning machine, heaters, transfer pumps,and a 1200.00 spray gun. My material is set in about 1-minute, the time it takes to cool from 120 degrees when sprayed up to 360 degrees when it raises then down in temp. my material is completly set and never changes in these qualities after incapsulated.My product is a 2-componet system, store product is single component.This is my business spray foam. I wouldn't advise any other foam other then sprayed in place,2-component foam. foil. ice dam material to hold down, heavy pad, carpet,completly dry first!

Rodder_5 I just know I'm headed for trouble, but here goes . Sound is one of the tough ones . Different areas need different protection please be more direct as to where you are having the most trouble and what you have or have not done so far. One of the hardest problems to over come so take one step at a time. I do not recomend spray expanding foam . #1 it has very little sound damping . #2 after time it will work it's way loose, and the squeek should drive you crazy. Rodder_5

1meancuda Paco, you might want to ask about Ice and Water Guard. A lot of times it's under that name. I've used it before while re-shingling a garage roof.
I wonder if the under-body spray wouldn't work for this.....

Halloweenking True, working with PUF (polyurethane foam) does require ideal conditions, but if you seal your prodject correctly before the ffoam you should have no problems, I use all PPG products, sealers, primers, and paints. I use PPG because its a good product its easy to use and its fairly economical, and I also have a whole store room full, mixing equipment included straight from PPG. I'd use it even if I didn't though.

gbovaird I agree that spray foam can be like duct tape, the best thing since sliced bread. But my concern is that it also sometimes traps moisture and helps rot cars from the inside out. Guess it depends on where you live or what your intentions for the car are.

Halloweenking The foam sold and manufactured by Foam Seal is made for enclosed areas, I used it on my Trans Am and it improved the ride dramatically. I also used the foam in my newest prodject, and its exstremely quiet and because of its strenth, it was a great addition, and it let me acheive the look I was going for, I didn't have to use as many braces helping keep the exsterior of the woodie smooth and flowing without any interuptions, and it also improves your sound system.

Stinkin_V8 Hmm.. Sounds like the same foam I used to use for building fiberglass cores. You're right, if you seal it off, it will never harden.
