Too Much Heat

I need to insulate the interior of my 1947 Ford Coupe. The insulation under the carpet is a bubble wrap type insulation. But the firewall, floor board, transmission hump get extremely hot in this Texas weather even with A/C on.
I have billet interior hardware and the console plate alunium gets so hot you can't put your hand on it. I've been told Dynamat, Hushmat, and even to go to Lowe's for insulation and to use coating of the type used on roofs of mobile homes will do the trick. Can anyone point me in the right direction. Thank you.

Check this out: this stuff is very efficient and light weight so you can also use it under the headliner.Just like Texas here in Arizona a lot of the heat radiates through the roof,you can see lots of installs on the website and it won't kill your wallet,be sure and check out the burn test video too and send for a free sample.

There is a ton of info on this subject here, but you need to search for "sound deadeners". That will lead you to a lot of the information you are looking for. One warning: Roofing products that are available from the home improvement stores, like Peel & Seal, are asphalt based. If you are getting that much heat, you will need something that is butyl based. It will be more expensive, but it will work better. Good Luck.

No one lives forever, the trick is creating something that will.
