    Back in the roofing area is some rolls different widths. 4-6-8 wide. Peel and stick. Then you could order some of locorods insulation. Stick down with a little bit of white loctite in a chalking tube works very good.
  4. ok .How have you been? Buddy!

  5. Thats where i looked in Lowes Home depot had nuttin!

    Used it all throughout my Mustang. Cheap and works like a charm! There are several different brands. Home Depot, Lowes, any large hardware store should have it.

    The Peel and Seal at Lowes is 8" wide and comes in 25" rolls. It goes a lot further than you think. It took just over 2 rolls to do the front and back floor boards in my 60 Brookwood wagon. Wider rolls of other makes aren't that much better given the cutting you will have to do to make it fit the contours of the floor.

    "Suppressor" from Thermo tech...available in five foot by 32 inch rolls at your nearest "Speed shop"...this is the stuff that drag racers use to insulate their interiors...thicker than "Peel and Seal"...sticky backed and once it's down you won't pick it aback up...used it in my '60 wagon...took three rolls to do the floor of MY '60 Brokwood's quiet now...!!!

    I have used Dynamat Xtreme on my '32 Ford and '36 Chevy truck interiors. Works very well. Dynamat lists for $340 (9 sheets 18" X 32") Jegs sells it for $255, Summit wants $232 and you can buy it for $136 plus $20 shipping on EBay.

    You only want to do it once so just buy the stuff made for cars and not for your house. JMO.

    I used U-Seal from home depot on my firewall. On the floors i used the reflectix on the floors, i was a bit worried the tar type backing on the u-seal would get stinky when warmed from the exhaust under the floor. That's why i used the reflectix on the floor...i think the u seal would do a better job because it's much more dense.

    I'll vouch for the roofing stuff. It works tits and it doesn't cost $300.

    That isn't the case at all stores. I work at HD as Line Manager and the official policy on the DD214 is Veterans day, Labor Day, Memorial Day and Fouth of July only. If you are active Military, Retired or a dependent or are Service Connected and it states Service Connected on your VA card, you can get 10%. Just saying as different stores are following their own policy's and I wouldn't want someone getting pissed if they didn't get the 10%.

    I'll be going with the reflectix soon myself.

    For my roof I will use roofing materials. For my cars I use DynaMat, a product designed specifically for cars. Don't kid yourself, they are NOT the same.;)

    Take a look at this website. Not as inexpensive as Home Depot roofing stuff, but good quality stuff. And a lot of good info to be had. It's worth a look.
