He does make a good point though, about the closed cell foam.

Just because it goes to support that extra time I'll be spending :D


Oh and I found a company that puts out a easy to get ahold of hardening(remains flexible but won't run) type of spray on butyl rubber, zero ashphalt/tar.

:D

slightly off topic, whats that kind of hardening foam people use and spray in their chassis holes and it expands and gets more rigid?

Don't know the name but it is real good. Ford, Chevy, Dodge, etc. us them on the trucks to keep the noise down in places where they can't get tar into like the pillars. It makes the part ridgid, deadins sound, and dosen't add weight. In the future I plan on doing this to my Swift.

Bringing up an old topic, my apologies...

But does this B-Quiet also help with keeping outside temperature outside?? Another words helping the inside A/C work less to keep the car cooler?
