under carpet padding stuff suggestions please

Is there an inexpensive alternative to dynamat? I know its the best but sheesh its a bit expensive to do the whole car, I saw some stuff at the Long Beach Swap meet that had like jute (sp?) backing and a foil top and some other stuff that had a thin foam with foil on top, I was looking at stuff from Home Depot that we used under our hardwood floor any suggestions? I have a 64 Ford Falcon 2dr hardtop- thanks

There are cheaper products than Dynamat out there, but make sure you are comparing apples to apples.......look at the specifications. Find something that is Butyl based, not Asphalt based. Search the internet for "Sound Deadeners". Also, there always seem to be better deals on Dynamat and the other sound deadeners on E-Bay. Check out this link: CLICK HERE Steer away from the stuff you find at home centers. Other products are Fat Mat, Rattle Trap, B-Quiet.

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

I have used Elemental Designs eDead with great success on several cars. It is an apples-to-apples competitor to Dynamat at a much better price. It also outperforms Dynamat.

I used this stuff on the body panels and floor and roof. Its a little less.money. I also added 3/8" on the floor padding and another 3/8 jute then carpet.
You need to use closed cell because it won't absorb moisture .

I have used this from Tractor Supply. Works very well. Also Mass loaded Vinyl works well.
