Dynamat worth the price?

Just noticed how pricey it is. Is it worth it? I see they have precut kits for Chevelles.

Re: Dynamat worth the price?

i used Fat Mat in mine. I like it because it does keep the noise down.

Re: Dynamat worth the price?

Lots of more reasonbly priced options. Most are just as good as Dynamat. Fatmat is one.

Re: Dynamat worth the price?

I bought a roll of insulation from Home Depot. Rolled it out, cut to fit and glued it in. A little more labor than Dynamat but the price savings was well worth it.

Re: Dynamat worth the price?

Good info thanks guys. A couple options. I'm doing for both noise and heat.

Re: Dynamat worth the price?

I used RAAMmat BXT II with Ensolite IUO in mine. I would do it again in a heartbeat.

Re: Dynamat worth the price?

I replaced the siding on my house and used the tinfoil mating underneath the new siding . Had some left over so I installed it two layers think under the carpet on floor and firewall of my 52 Buick. Before after a hundred miles of 100 degree heat you could fry eggs inside the car on the carpet. After the tinfoil mating my wife swears the car is way cooler than before, you cannot feel the heat radiating off the firewall. I am sure this is the same quality as Home Depot.

That's a mouthful!!! It does look like a decent system though.

Re: Dynamat worth the price?

I used Lobucrod EZ Cool in mine, but apparently they sold out to someone else. It was about .55/sq. ft. at the time. Now it's around $1/sq. ft.

I did the floor (double layer), the hood, inside the cab, etc.

I've seen others using peel and stick stuff from Lowe's and Home Depot, and they are quite satisfied.

The thing to consider is an adhesive backed material can only be cut one way. But one that requires adhesive as you install it can be cut in either direction, a mirror image.

Need 2 kick panels? Cut 'em at the same time, spray or brush the adhesive, you're done.

Pre-glued won't work that way. You have to figure out which side the adhesive is on before you cut, so you'll end up with way more waste of material when you're finished!

Good luck.

Custom painters don't screw up! They just add more graphics.

Didn't even think of all that. Thanks for the heads up. I'm going to look at Home Depot as well.

Re: Dynamat worth the price?

Anyone know what they call the peel and stick type that Home Depot sells? Trying to find it on their website.

Re: Dynamat worth the price?

I'm getting ready to do my 56 Chevy 210. I've Lizard Skinned the roof and floor already. A friend recommended I get "Cool It" from Summit. It's here and I intend to go from the firewall to the panel behind the rear seat with the stuff, inside the quarter panels and doors. Haven't decided about the roof yet, but not putting in a headliner for a while anyway. If this works as well as I expect, I'll be pulling the interior out of my Chevelle and doing the same thing.

Re: Dynamat worth the price?

Found this searching the net. Guys say it's very similar to Dynamat. Don't think it is sticky back.

Re: Dynamat worth the price?

Trying again. My previous reply was rejected because my “security token” was an issue. (?). Anyway, do SOMETHING. I used Dynamat in a Jeep and it made a huge difference in interior noise level.

Re: Dynamat worth the price?

I found enough Dynamat Extreme at about 1/3 price to do the firewall to under the front seats on CL, then Fatmat ed the rest of the floor, behind rear seat & package tray, doors & under quarter glass, Reflextix (light weight) from Lowes for the roof with spray adhesive, personally I wouldn't pay retail for Dynamat when FatMat is just as good and cheaper
