    So I pulled the carpet back on a truck I got a while back, (always have to take stuff apart), and it seems I have a windshield leak that has drenched the factory jute padding and rusted the floor badly with a few pinholes starting. After I fix the floor I want to put the carpet back with some sort of padding-sound deadner so I looked at Dynamats site and OH MY GAWD that stuff is expensive. Anyone have an alternative I could use? I don't care so much about the padding as the sound deadner. Thanks.

    Do the search with key words like: Sound deadener, dynamat, peel and stick, ect. Plenty of guys have used many combination's for great and inexpensive results.

    Just go down to your local lowes, menards, home depot and get yourself some roof sealer.
    Some of it comes in 4inch rolls and sticks really good!
    Ive been useing it for years, way cheaper than dynomat!

    Vintique makes jute padding that you can generally find for about $30 a roll. I believe it is 4' x 6'. Enough to do a firewall, anyway. Even if you are doing Dynamat, you still probably want to replace the jute. I agree that Lizard Skin is pretty awesome stuff, but you will need a special gun to spray it. The company makes a gun that's fairly inexpensive, or you can get away with an undercoating or shutz gun. Evercoat makes Dynamat-type material called Q-Pads that are quite a bit less expensive than real Dynamat and still work just as well. I've never used Fatmat so I can't give an opinion on that one. Hope this helps a bit.

    The jute padding is the heart of my problems now. I don't want a sponge under there.
