Quiet Ride?

I have searched elsewhere in this forum and have found some great leads on interior acoustic/heat insulation. I have a '72 Pontiac Luxury LeMans and a 1969 Mercury Cougar. The Cougar is getting new carpeting, so I have been searching for something other than the stock asphalt-based carpet underlayment. Today I stumbled across this website:

http://www.quietride.com/acoustishield/default.htm

Quiet Ride Solutions in Stockton, CA. I am attracted to their products because they can be ordered as pre-cut kits.

Does anyone have any firsthand knowledge about this company or its products?

Hope you don't mind if I comment. I am not familiar with their product, but even according to their testimonials, they are comparable to Dynamat. Their product is precut to fit almost any application. But man, they are proud of their product! Of course, so is Dynamat. If you've got the dough, the Quiet Ride product sounds primo!

Quiet Ride

I have dug into this a little further. Essentialy Quiet Ride is a sytem and not a product.

There are really only two parts to the system: Strategically placed Dynamat and Quality Heat Shield. Adhesive spray, Foil Tape and directions come with each kit.

Dynamat can be purchased from several sources. I purchased Quality Heat Shield from JCWhitney about a year ago. It is a foil-backed insulation about 3/8" thick. I bought a 48" wide roll for around $80. It has been enough to do the entire cabin of my '69 Cougar.

Since I already had the insulation on hand, I just decided to cut my own patterns based on the old insulation pieces and do my own similar system.

The big benefit or the Quiet Ride system is that all the patterns have been figured out, are precisely cut and lay down into place with ease, which I'm sure is a hassle-reducer.

But I did have fun tracing out my stuff and later cutting it using scissors while watching TV.
