    As far as it being tar is concerned...remember the Volkswagen with the heavy tar poured over the floorboards and shifter tunnel? So if it was good enough for VW...

    The stuff you guys keep calling "tar" on Peel and Seal is actually butyl rubber. Same thing that old style windshields were glued in with. Same thing as 3M strip caulk.

    This website has a ton of great info on making your car quiet, and also clears up a lot of mis-information floating around about sound deadening. I haven't used any of his products yet, but his his ideas all sound right.

    Sometimes it's plain asphalt tar, not butyl rubber, in the cheaper versions. Shop carefully.

    HAs anyone applied this over existing sound deadener? I have some factory installed stuff in the roof that would probably require a jackhammer to remove....1960 Chevy Wagon.

    I just did the firewall and toe board of my 47 coupe with the Peel & Seal. The previous owner thought it was a good idea to remove the stock insulation, and the heat being radiated made the car almost unbearable oh a warm day. One layer of Peel & Seal did the trick. I also did the kick panels while I was at it. If/when I ever redu the interior, I'll apply it over the rest of the surfaces. It really is amazing how much of a difference it makes.

    I use the same stuff on my OT cars/SUV. It works great and never had a problem with it coming lose or smell issues. You do need to seal the joints with the tape or you might see some discolouration from the tar over time
