*Sound Deadening Material*

Guys,

I'll be pulling the bench seat out of my 49 and pealing the carpet back to install bucket seats. I'd like to add some sound deadening material but just a quick look online shows it being pretty costly. Has anyone used anything from Lowes that would work just as well?

This has been recently discussed in "Reducing Cab Noise" in the "Interiors" forum. There may be some helpful ideas in that thread.

Have Fun.

I covered the floor, cab roof, back of cab and all the outside door skin I could reach with Lowes peel&stick roof flashing seal. Easy to work if you take your time.

Since I had a roll of 3/4 black dense closed cell foam, I used it over the peel&stick every where but the doors. Very happy.

If I hadn’t had the foam rubber I’d have doubled up with the peel&stick.

I got this at Lowes. I can tell you it was a night & day difference. I did inside the doors. The gas tank, floors ect. Love it now.
I bought a small hard Roller , which made it super easy.

I’m ready to put sound deadening/heat insulation in my 1953 GMC. Has anyone used either Kilmat or Noico 80 mil products? Ease of installation and if they work as advertised.

I used Noico 80 mil. Did doors on both sides, roof and floor. The Noico worked very well ! pretty easy to install, did doors by putting cut pieces in freezer for 30 mins, made it easy to get into place and roll-out before it became to sticky to move around. Now very quite inside . Also did firewall and installed new door rubbers .

Well....got my bench seat out last night after work and I pealed a corner of the carpet back and low and behold I say some white matting on the floor. I'll know more this coming weekend as I'll really be diving into this project. I did put the passengers side seat in as I was curious as to just where the front right leg of the bucket set would mount. Of course its right over a portion of the battery cover but I have the gears turning in my head for that issue. Anyway....may not need the floor deadening material after all. I'll know more when I get the carpet out and can take a really good look.

Pulled the carpet back this morning and looks like sound deadening material has already been layed down.
