sound proof

Hey guys,I was posting on another forum about sound deadener and some one said that Lowes has something called Peel and Seal that looks and feels like Fatmat material. and it's cheaper. I googled it and it's only $14.95 for a 6" by 25' roll. enough to do the inner firewall and under the seats.

they carry that? what department, and are you going to use it? let me know how it works if any good, kause i would love to do my floor roof and possibly firwall, and back wall, (fatmat and dynomat are also good for insulation to keep heat or cool in or out, keeps it very moderate temp on the interior)

Well I bought two rolls, mind you this stuff is 6" wide by 25' long,the perfect size to work with, it is peel and stick with an aluminium backing that conforms beautifully to curves in the floor. I just took off my plastic door sills and inner kick panels pulled back the carpet and did the firewall as far as I could get up under the dash the whole floor pan all the way to the seats and had enough to cover the deepest part of the floor pan twice and the door sills. I was pleased at the amount of noise reduction but wish it could have been more,all in all a great project that took less than an hour and very cost effective. I may take out the seats this week end and do the rest. Oh and BTW use a box cutter to cut it on a board. Scissors gum up too easy.

I did notice a good bit of difference,I need to do the hood also with a hood mat next. I have a Corvette that has a good bit of road noise coming from the rear I plan to tackle when I'm through with the truck.

Hey guys hold off on buying this stuff,I have a guy telling me on another forum that Peel n Seal is asphalt based and will melt,My gusetion is if it's made for the roof won't it melt there too. I need to see what I can find out. I think he is full of it.
