Sound deadening Studebaker
Hi Guys, Im new to the whole custom car scene and I just bought a 1963 Studebaker lark I am looking to do a few things to. to start with I want to dyna mat the interior to drown out some of the road noise. does anybody on here know how much I would need to do the floor, doors, fire wall and boot? even a rough estimation of how much I would need for jus one section ie: how much for boot would be helpful.

Thanks Joel

There's a ton of information here about sound deadening a vehicle. Start with this thread, and then do a search for sound deadening. Remember two things: 1) with these products you get what you pay for 2) you don't need to cover every square inch to get good sound deadening.

Check into a product called Lizard Skin. It's a spray on sound deading and they also have a spray on insulation coating.

If you look into Lizard Skin, also check out this thread:

I have used this and for $50 plus shipping its a bargain. Insulate sound deaden and rust proof with one product.
From the website: This product can be used as a single coat system or a two coat system. When using a two coat system a "wet on wet" application method is recommended.
This can be achieved by applying one coat of METAL SHIELD at 5-6 wet mils, let flash for two hours and apply another coat at 10 wet mils.
It can be brushed or rolled on, I used my critter spray gun.

I got a Studebaker also. It's a 46 M series. Few of us Studebaker folks left
Follow the advice they listed above... There are great cheap alternatives to Dynamat and Lizard skin.
