    Just a tip for you gentlemen who may be interested. I bought some sound deadener. It’s called Kilmat. I got mine on Amazon for 30 bucks. It did my entire Ford Starliner floor including doors. It forms nicely to the contour. If it’s real compound curvy, hit it with a heat gun. Boom. It forms! Basically I sound deadened my car for 30 bucks and 2 hours of my time. ( the interior was totally out of the car ). It looks like Dynamat that you see in hot rod books etc. only WAAAAAY less money.

    Thanks for the info. I've been looking at the Kilmat and the Noico sound deadening on Amazon. They both have great reviews. Thanks for confirming on the Kilmat.

  5. I just ordered the Kilmat "kit" with 36 SQ FT of mat, the seam tape and a gen-u-wine steel roller....was $74 shipped. Maybe now I'll get rid of that WOOOOOOOO noise from the inside of my top at about 1600 RPM. MAN, the harmonics are deafening right now with nothing but a couple coats of urethane primer.

    Not sure what I'll click the buy on Kilmat or the Noico, not expecting a huge difference however anyone do the roof? Will that help much? My truck is pretty much a tin can, no interior but since I have to pull the seats out I am going to splurge.
    These old internationals had a sound deadener sprayed under the seat area and on inside of door skin. The stuff underside is as solid and bonded as it was in 1941.

    I am removing seats because when I set engine i placed it too low. Truck being on stands it looked fine until all was done. Oil pan only 4" off the ground and its going to bite me in the ass one of these days, scraped it a few times. Been putting off raising engine for ,,,,oh..10 years..

    I used lobucrod insulation on my roof, plenty of 3M adhesive both sides let it tack. Holding up great, its very light so I dont see any issue woth it staying up.

    Thanks for this... I have had the kilmat sitting in my amazon cart for a few days reading reviews etc. I guess I will pull the trigger on it and finally quiet the ride in my coupe...

  11. I used the Kilmat in the old beater and am well pleased with the product, I used Dynamat in the Boss Lady's wagon and this seems to be basically the same thing with a different name. HRP

    I sprang for the Noico with the black outer surface ($1 more then the silver backing) because I didn't want the advertising the Kilmat has, and most of the rest of the interior is black. It may be a while before I get around to putting the rest of the interior in the truck.

    I bought the 36 sq ft size and it did the roof and the back wall of my 39 Dodge cab. There are still a few small pieces left, but I will need at least another 36 sq ft to do the floor and firewall. I did the roof and back wall 1st because they were the most exposed area on my truck. Putting this stuff inside those doors will be a pita. The steel roller works well on flat surfaces but doesn't work worth a darn in rounded corners, a rounded body dolly worked pretty good for me though.

    I've driven the truck about 200 miles and there is almost no outside noise in the truck (except around the door edges, the weatherstripping wasn't installed there yet.) It gives this cab the modern solid sound when you close the doors. I'll be buying more. Gene

    I ordered the same Noico kit,,maybe should have ordered 2. Good to hear you are pleased with results. My '41 sounds like a tin can, currently we prefer driving with the windows down, its quieter.

  17. Update, we can actually have a conversation driving on the interstate without yelling, the combination of Kilmat & a interior is amazing. HRP

    I'd like to know if that stuff will stick to the ceiling through hot summer days. Seems I've read of some, (can't remember which) that don't stick up there all that well.
     
  19. This is the 2nd project I’ve done with this home improvement product.
    Peel and stick rubberized roofing material.
    Will get some more details tomorrow

    Has anyone used the Eastwood sound mat product? I don't think anyone imports Kilmat into New Zealand. We can purchase Dynamat but is hellishly expensive compared to the Eastwood product. I'm planning on doing the coupes interior this winter.
    Thanks, Russell.

    I was just thinking that same thing. In the 108* Oklahoma sun, will it turn into goo?

    That's cheaper than the peel and stick, last roll I bought of it it had went from $16.00 to almost $21.

    The Noico is suppose to stick to over 400 degrees in the heat and to -45 in the cold. You do want to be sure the surface you are attaching it to is clean, dry and fairly smooth. Nothing is going to stick very long to a crusty, dirty or rough surface very well. I'm hoping the Noico is going to work better then the milar covered bubble wrap attached with the high temp 3M contact cement that failed after 5 years in my coupe.
    It sure looks good in there now. Gene

    After installing the kilmat and only driving short distance a few times has anyone noticed a burning smell or anything like , I can’t pin point what it is but it wasn’t like that before

    Seriously though have you checked with any local top shops or other hot rodders?

    I can buy the Eastwood product locally as well as the Dynamat. The Eastwood product specs look good, I was just wondering if there was any feed back on it.

    I did my '65 F100 with a product purchased off TradeMe, the company that sells it does high end stereo installs, they sell in several number sheet packs. It is 5 years and still going strong. I also stuck it under the bonnet (hood).
    It is still listed.
     
  29. In the UK there's a similar product at a similar price called Dodomat. I used some last week to insulate my Modified. Went in very nicely and a few minutes with a heat gun made it easy to fit to complex curves.

    Yes I have seen that product, no name to it (not that it matters if it is a good product). The eastwood deadener seems to be a similar price.
    Thanks. Russell.
