There's a ton of information here about sound deadening a vehicle. Start with this thread, and then do a search for sound deadening. http://www.hotrodders.com/forum/dyna...al-201328.html 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.
I have used this http://www.metalshield.com/ 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.
