    Eventually I'd like to pull my seats and carpet and dynamat the inside for the most part. I mostly want to keep the console somewhat cooler, and cut down on some interior noise. Anyone use dynamat before? How is the process gone about, where's the best place to order some from etc.. thanks

    I did the whole floor. Noise wise it's not that much difference. . Temp wise I never really checked. . I'm eventually going to do the doors. . I hear that makes the most difference noise wise. .

    I look to dynamat (butile type deadeners) as more of a resonance/vibration killer. I know a lot of the guys on here use the luxury liner stuff (I forget the brand) that's basically a lead filled mat, gets a lot of mass down and really kills noise.

    lead filled mat lol? Ah no is a rubber/vinyl material. Heavier then the stock jute damping that the factory uses under the carpet but it also is closed cell and doesn't absorb water or mold as well as has a much better noise resistance. I think now with the heat shield I just finished putting on the bottom of the trans hump that I have done every type of sound damping on the mustang. I pulled the stock carpet and started with second skin damplifier pro on the floor and the doors both on the outer skin and the inner and went all the way up to the ceiling. I replaced the stock carpet with a raw uncut piece and first put in the luxury liner on the floor to take the place of the stock jute and then put the carpet on top of that. After I put the exhaust on my console had issues getting hot so I actually put a traditional heat shield on the top of the console area, can't remember the brand but I also got it from second skin and it made a huge difference. Finally last year when I had the sub frame connectors installed and it was up on the lift at the shop I had them do a layer of lizard skin ceramic material on the bottom and like I said above just 2 weeks ago did another traditional heat shield on the bottom of the trans tunnel. Its the only thing I have a pic of right now everything else is so old I would have to dig up pics.

    In my years installing I have literally had my hands on every brand of sound damping material and for my own car second skin is the only brand I consider. Don't cheap out on it as there is a difference and no matter what you get do NOT get it at home depot(peel and seel/asphalt based).

    The PO of my car used the peel and seal all over my car (thanks dude...) and it's falling off and sliding around making a mess. My 66 is lined in Damplifier Pro and luxury liner, it made a huuuuuuggggggeeeee improvement.

    Ttocs, I do like that heat shield and have been looking at doing that to both of my cars. What product did you use?

    The nicest part of it all is you really will not be able to see any of it with the motor in, and now there is all kinds of light if I need to work in that area :)

    Just used some aluminum tape on the edges and some rivets with washers on the end just to give a mechanical fastener in case the adhesives fail years from now.

    I have patches of dynamat on my car. I just use it to kill some vibration in like door panels and trunk.
    I wouldn't waste my money on the whole car personally

    the doors are one of the areas that benefit the most from it. You can not only block out noise but it often helps to make an enclosure from the door and help the sound of the speakers as well.

    if you had a piece of it in one hand a piece of dynamat in the other you would be like me and only use the damplifier pro in your own car.

    I lined my entire trunk, doors and floors with Dynamat... My car is lowered and very stiff and I saw very little difference in the road noise. I wish I could take it out actually, it added like 50 lbs, but there's sticky tar stuff everywhere... Just my two cents!

    Dynamat won't combat road noise, totally different wave lengths.

    i like to use it around the areas i have subs. seems to clean up the bass and mute most if not all of the annoying vibrations.

    Try that lizard skin sound deadner that you spray on. They have stuff for heat and sound control, and since it is spray on you can get it into areas that you can not install the mats. lizardskin.com

    its good stuff I have it on the bottom of my car. I didn't notice a huge difference but by that time I had already gone nuts on the inside.
