sound deadening and insulation

so Ive got to do some interior work on my daily. its an 89 c1500 ext. cab work truck model. rubber floor mat, plastic and vinyl everything else. its hot in the summer, cold in the winter.

the interior is currently out to reupholster the seats and headliner, as well as add some luxuries (cruise, interior lights, radio, cigarette lighter)

while its out, id like to make it much more comfortable from a temperature and noise standpoint.

Ive already started on the doors with the Mcmaster Carr masteric sound deadener. have to order some more tomorrow or the next day, as i ran out tonight. that's making a huge difference in the drumming of the panels.

over top of that is where I'm debating with myself. (remember, budget is a BIG concern here)

originally i had planned on a layer of 1/2 inch foil backed jute over top of all the interior surfaces, as well as behind all the interior panels. i did this same combination of products on my 70 duster, and am pleased with the results.

catch here is that I'm having a hard time finding the foil backed just for a reasonable price. no one in town has it, so i have to order it. cheapest Ive found is 26 bucks a roll, for a 3X5 sheet. at that size, i figure I'm going to need 10-15 rolls for the whole cab. which is just ridiculous.

reading through the knowledge base, i had the idea of going to my local lowed and getting the 3/8 carped insulation made up of all the thread and fabric scraps, and covering that with the foil bubble wrap stuff. does that sound right? will it work as well as the foil backed jute that i used in my duster?
is there another way to do this that I'm missing, or a supplier for the foil backed jute that's significantly cheaper?

thanks
Michael

The product you're looking for is called Thermozite made by the Ozite Corporation. Here's the lowest price I could find on the internet, which is $11.95 a yard. Buy 25 yards and it's only $9.95 a yard: CLICK HERE This stuff is 48" wide, so a yard of it is 36" by 48" or 12 square feet per yard.

The same thing I used, and it works well. That is an excellent price, I paid about 17 a yard.

BTW, I forgot to mention that Thermozite is made with Polyester fiber, not jute. It also comes with foil on two sides.

It will probably work better because it is denser than the jute.
