I checked out one of the links
http://www.caraudio.com/forum/showthrea ... t=deadener

This has been suggested here awhile ago. interesting. I may try some roof goop to reduce the hard-tire noise.

He is definitely not good with foaming doors. :lol: :lol: :lol:

I think if I sprayed with some anti rust pain under the car. The spray make a some kind of rubber layer and prevent car and a paint under the body.But in the car what to do. There is some kind of band http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/4 ... AA280_.jpg this one. Do you thing is gone to have some effect about sound proofing.

It could but its going to take a few layers. They also don't formulate it to take some of the tar smell away. I've used it before...Dynamat will work and stick better IMO. Now, the Dynamat costs about 3-4 times as much but until somebody can confirm that it doesn't take 3-4 times as much of the cheap stuf for the same results we really won't know which is the better deal.

that maybe tar based.
best is butyl rubber to absorb sound and a foil side to reflect heat.
i glued good quality carpet pad onto foil-air insulation in the side panels.
due to moisture potential in the doors, i used waterproof stuff. some foams will absorb water.
