Well,

Just "dynamatted" my trunk with the cheap ass Grace Ice shield stuffs. 106sqft for 61.50 out the door at my local Lowes.

Still have more then half left and the difference is amazing. I had no trunk carpet or anything before this. The whole trunk would vibrate so bad with the new system, I was forced to try this. Sticks awesome even in 10*F conditions, CUT VIBRATIONS/RATTLING DOWN!!!

I can't believe it, and the subs sound much much clearer.

Sticks even to my back of my licience plate like a charm, one layer probably 1cm thick!!!


A+ buy if you looking for the best sound absorber out there.

i suppose home depot would have some too? you spread it that think over the whole trunk? any runs or anything afterwards, or does it have a hardened skin that forms on the outside so other stuff doesn't stick to it? any pics?

I've used that stuff on roofing projects. It comes in like a 32 foot roll, 3 feet wide. Not a liquid product.

Is this stuff self-adhesive, or heat activated? I have had problems with "normal" dynamat peeling in the summer here (Phoenix). The "extreme" dynamat works like a charm, though.

Out of curiosity, how much does an entire roll weigh?

Guys,

Here are the two products I used in my sound insullation project. First I installed the Ice & Storm Sheild, then covered that with the duct foam wrap. The Ice & Storm shield has a peel off backing with an adhisive on one side. I got it at Menard's.

It works & sticks best when used in small, cut to fit shapes and then warmed with a heat gun.


The duct wrap is a foil faced 1/8" thick foam with a sticky backing. I got it at Ace hardware.


Lowe's and HomeDepot had another similar brand but the foil facing was stiffer and did not form well and it seperated from the foam.


Good luck with your project, DB

I just got the Home Depot version of this stuff. I will be doing the trunk. And the box of this stuff is very heavy. Don't know the weight off hand but its HEAVY!!!

How much of the trunk do I need to cover? Every square inch or just selected areas? I plan on covering the entire floor but what about the sides?

Thanks

Murray

I've not done it myself.. just from reading here. I'd guess that doing the quarterpanels and the backseat bracing are just as important, if not more, than the trunk floor. Seems to me there are just as long expanses of straight metal on the sides that would be easier to vibrate. I know I'll do as much metal as I can see when I get around to my trunk!

I guess you will run into the weight issue with something cheaper than Dynomat or Fatmat. I plan on doing something like DB, but a little more on the sound deadening than the vibration.
