Dynamat

Sunday, January 1st, 2012

Completed installation of the Dynamat on the floor pans today.  It’s really straight forward and easy to install.  I bought the heavy duty rubber roller with the wooden handle sold under the Dynamat name.  I started out using a cheap plastic roller.  I would definitely recommend paying the extra for the better roller.  Just remember to wear gloves when installing.  It took me two deep cuts on the same finger before I got the point.

It would be my guess that all the major brands of this type of sound deadening are exactly the same.  Thin aluminum sheet adhered to an 1/16″ of sticky butyl backing but what can I say, I’m a sucker for name brands.  It is expensive but a ton of money can be saved by making your purchase from Amazon or Ebay.  In fact, the bulk pack is nearly $100 cheaper from these websites, making it just about the same price as the Summit brand.  It doesn’t go as far as you think it would.  I’m working on my second pack which are both 36 square feet so you’ll need the cost savings.
