i'm looking to line my firewall, floor, and rear wall of my standard cab with something to help with the heat, vibrations and road noise before i install my carpet. it's been awhile since i have used any sound dampening products but i just use to do a layer or 2 of edead and some liquid v3. seemed to work alright and the v3 added some strength in the thin areas.

is there anything better? cheaper? over time i plan on doing the whole truck just so you know and i'd like to use the same products.

Peel and seal should do the trick. I plan on using it on my floor when I pull my carpet out. I am gonna use something a lil higher quality on the rear wall and roof though.

Higher quality as far as adhesion?

Well I dont really know. The P&S ive used in the past seems to stick very well if the surface is clean and it is warmed up but im not gonna take any chances of the stuff possibly coming loose from my roof.

spray on bed liner type products are terrible idea if you are going for sound absorption on the inside of your vehicle. It will create more of an echo than anything. Do yourself a favor and just get a decent butyl backed sound deadener...second skin is what i used and i'm glad i did. Works just as good as dynamat and costs much less. Just remember: Gloves/tools will save many painful cuts to the tips of your fingers.

ive heard 2nd skin is good also

save your money and do it right the 1st time
get a good product and not have to do as many layers as the cheap stuff

ok thanks. i was looking at the real thick stuff from ssa. is this stuff pretty good at staying in place with floor heat from an old 350? or should i look at getting some type of liquid over it.
