Ok,

Here's what I'm up to. I am re-doing (yet again) my chevelle interior. This time though I intend to make it the best and last time. (wishful thinking) I striped everything out, and have already taped off most of the interior. I intend to use a product made by duplicolor that turns rust to primer. My main goal is to try and do this "somewhat" professionally. All I really want to do is protect the floor from rusting away in the future. After the floor is primered and the rest of the rust is sanded away, what type of paint protectant should I use on the floor. Is regular spray can paint from the local hardware store good? Also After its painted I would like to lay down some "insulation" to protect against heat and road noise. The original cardboard like substance used as insulation was disgusting and not reusable. Where would I get this type of insulation?

Thanks for the help,

Dan

I will try to post pictures of the progress as soon as my piece of junk camera works!!

I would paint it with POR15.

Her is an old post by "DC" in 2002. There talking about the pad insulation with the silver backing.
I also used this sound proofing from mcmaster-carr. It was about 20 miles from my house. I think the part number has changed it will tell you if you look it up.

I was that exact stuff in my Nova when I replaced the carpeting... good, but not great. It was cheap and easy, but it did not give me any better performance than the 'regular' underlayment from the factory. It does cushion nicely and insulates better, but noise is the same or worse than factory. If I get the chance to do it again, I would still use the insulation, but under it I would use some kind of sound deadener like the Dynomat... I will use something much cheaper tho: www.mcmaster.com item number 9709T19 is the exact same thing as dynomat but without the Dynomat logo! You can do the whole car for under $50!

Hello,

This is what I got from that site. I think I found what I need. Will this do it?

Description:

Sheets are made of polyurethane foam bonded to a vinyl barrier. If mounted as a curtain, place foam toward noise source. If used for an enclosure, adhere foam side to mounting surface. Sheets are 54" wide. Temp. range is -20° to +180° F. Max. continuous length is 30 ft., unless noted. Foam is gray.



They also have a Vinyl Barrier Sheet that is supposed to better then the one above,.. Is this really necessary??

Thanks,

Dan

This is what I used, peel back the paper and stick on If you have to use a heat gun. I also used it on the inside of my doors and quarter panels

Polymeric mastic sheet is asphalt-based; all others are made of super-flexible, thermoplastic

Polymeric Mastic 0.070" 32" x 54" 0.10 -30° to +300°F 0.7 Black 9709T19 14.62

Hey Brob, thanks for the link, but it was by some guy named "BC"! ;)

Anyway, the part that Brob left out is that we were talking about the 'bubble-wrap' type of insulation that had the foil on the outsides... That's what I used in my Nova. Like was posted, it insulated fine, just did not provide hardly any sound deadening. If I were to do again (someday I will!), I'd use the sheets of poly-mastic like in the link, then possibly the bubble wrap stuff over the top. Between the two, I think you would get a nice end result with sound deadening AND a soft, 'cushy' feel.

Best of luck,
Bill C.

Hey Guys,

Thanks for the help,... I'm going to give McMaster A call on Friday. When I get the results I will post what I ordered. Just another quick question,.... Is the tar paper really necessary or could I just use a adhesive type spray to hold down the sound deadner? Also what is the bubble packing Bill is talking about and is it necessary; or should I just go with the insulation? Thanks again,

Dan

I used the adhesive spray for the "tar paper" stuff. I'm sure you could use it for the sound deadner of your choice. I just went with the original tar paper type because ...

a) No mess or fuss...

b) no cutting or sizing

c) easy and it was what was original, so...

It just seemed like an easy thing for me, plus mine is a convertible...it's not quite with the top up or down. :D

Hey,

Good Point! I have a hard top though. The tar paper seems like a good idea. I noticed from your pictures that everything seems pretty original. Originality is nice but is not really a factor in my project. Im in the process of creating a Custom Autometer Dash; I bought Custom Seats, Headliner, Stereo, and just about everything else. Anyway,... Thanks for the help and good luck with your Chevelle Project!

Has anyone ever used Dynamat or its generic twins as the overlay?
