Sound deadener -- any problems?

I'm getting ready to install sound deadener in my '68 El Camino and intend to add it to the doors and under the headliner. I'll use a quality product like Dynamat, KILMAT or FatMat.

If you have installed sound deadener in the doors and/or roof of your car or truck, and have had it there for a while, have you had any problems? The issue that I'm concerned about is after a season or two of summer heat, could it come loose?

Thanks,
Greg

I’ve used FatMat. Did not install it in the doors, but I don’t think stuff will ever come off easily.

I've used Peel n Seal from Lowes numerous times and have never had an issue with it coming off. If you install it on a clean surface, you better have it where you want it the first time!

Re: Sound deadener -- any problems?

+1 for the Lowes Peel & Seal. People told me that it would smell like asphalt and road tar on a hot day . . . not so on the hottest of Louisiana days. Before applying the material, I hit it with a thousand watts of heat gun heat and never smelled a thing then or now. Nice price compared to the alternatives. Seriously, no smell.

No matter which of these products you pick, good surface preparation is important prior to laying it down. My floor, back wall and ceiling all got a spray coating of clear coat to give the sticky side of the sound deadening the best possible bonding surface. Basically, it needs to be clean and smooth metal. If no clear coat, at least remove loose rust and any dirt.

Even upside down on the underside of my El Camino ceiling, the Peel & Seal is hangin' tight!!!

Re: Sound deadener -- any problems?

I've seen that Loews or Home Depot tar based cheap crap ooze out of a door on hot days during a Texas summer. I also don't particularly care for the name brand stuff since having to go through the process of removing it for a floor and firewall mod in a car.

Your just jealous because you can't hear the voices!

Cool-it 14620. Much cheaper than Dynamat and I felt it was a very good product.

Around 2:14 you can see how I laid mine. I am weight stingy so I put chunks down rather than sheets and I still feel the result was good.

Lowes Peel n Seal. No smell from mine. Can't comment on whether it runs, as I put it under the carpet.

Re: Sound deadener -- any problems?

I wonder if the mil thickness is the only real difference on the peel & stick stuff, Dynamat Extreme to Peel & Stick roofing material...? maybe tar material or how much?

Re: Sound deadener -- any problems?

I don't trust the chemicals they make that stuff with. You'll be breathing all that in. On my 69 el camino I used undercoating made for airplanes from Lanolin called Fluidfilm. Its clean and smells nice.

Those el caminos have small interiors with sedan doors, they will by design be quiet already, I know mine is. People usually comment on the quietness or the smooth ride of my car..

That’s pretty steep! 200 sq ft of 80mil FatMat is $365 on eBay.
