Best thing to line floor with.

I'm finally giving up and losing the carpet.
Looking for suggestions on what coating to use.
I'd like something that is thick enough to cover seams and offer some heat protection.
Was considering spray-on restproofing/undercoating but it's too soft; will wear out under feet.
Bed liner goes on pretty thin and would be expensive to just add coat over coat to build up.
Anyone ever try that trunk liner that used to come on cars? You know, the black stuff with white speckles in it?
Other ideas?

Re: Best thing to line floor with.

There is a product out there called "Noize killer" which is durable enough to go under the floor (i.e. outside). Supposed to be good for heat and noise.

Never used it but it is on the short list for the YJ project. Google should find it.

There was also another product that looked similar that was discussed here in the last few months (wanna say Xmas timeframe). Sounded like it would work well as well.

Re: Best thing to line floor with.

I have no idea if this will fit the bill, but thought I'd throw it out there.

I saw the thread about this stuff. Looks interesting.
I don't think it goes on very thick though. Kinda pricy too.

Search for a thread someplace in between Jul 04 and October 04. There was discussion there about this paint that had ceramic particles in it: it was specifically made for heat (and it actually had some sort of a rating showing it's effectiveness) and sound. You'd want to coat with that and then with herculiner, linex or something like that on top of that.

rhino lining or LineX. LineX is probably the toughest stuff out there.

I used the bondo stuff, mix it up and roll it on, worked great. Got a gallon of it at Advance Auto.

You mean duplicolor? that stuff sucks and doesn't last no matter how much prep do you. Plus even stuff like LineX or Herculiner will not keep the heat out. For that you need actuall heat isolation type paint.

Re: Best thing to line floor with.

here ya go:

http://www.partsexpress.com/pe/showd...number=268-232

Anyways, there are a couple options for you to go with. I kind of abandoned the idea as I wasn't able to get the stuff in time before Moab a year ago and I didn't feel like ripping the carpet out since then.

Re: Best thing to line floor with.

Thanks Remi, this stuff looks interesting:

It's the ceramic additive, separate from the paint. You add it to your own paint to get the heat shielding properties.
Perhaps mixing this stuff with Rhino or Herculiner would be the way to go.
Anyone tried it?
