Album: Truck Soundproofing, Heat Insulation and Carpet Pad Installation
Hi: There are two pages of pictures. I did something wrong when I uploaded them, so the chronological order is mixed up. To view these, please view the photos with white floor visible first. I also include some pictures of the firewall where the materials stopped against the insulation from the factory that is on the firewall. Sorry, but this will give you the history of what was done. Materials used: Dynamat Extreme, Dynamat, Aerospace insulation, heat shield insulation, heat pad, carpet pad, and finally, new carpet. As you will see, I tapped out all threaded fastener holes in the floor prior to laying down materials, and I used two waterbed mattress heaters on a work bench to pre-heat the Dynamat Extreme (old stuff, they don't make it any more, it is very thick) and the regular Dynamat. A lot of measurements were taken, and materials were cut to fit curvatures in the floor and firewall. This project took me about three months of work off and on. Not something you want to do if you have to drive your truck daily. I started in the winter, finished in the spring. I also put special heat shielding over the floor above the catalytic converter.
