sound deadening and insultaion.

I'm lookin for cheap insulation. I found this stuff and heard some reviews from people saying it worked pretty good

I also found this. It looks almost like dynomat. What do you guys think?

Re: sound deadening and insultaion.

It's better to use the real thing. It might end up having a strong asphalt smell or the performance will not be as great. I have RAAMmat BTX on my floor it's $89.96 for 62.5 square feet.

Re: sound deadening and insultaion.

Not sure about the second, but the first is just butyl rubber with a foil covering. I patched up a metal roof with that stuff. No obnoxious odor or anything, but it's no cheaper than the stuff Mesh used, and probably more difficult to apply (6" wide vs 15").

Loctite? Hardware? Paint? Bungee cords? Ball mounts? Hitch baskets? Coolers? The nifty foam rubber matting people stick in the cargo area? MDF for speaker enclosures? Indoor/outdoor carpet?

Re: sound deadening and insultaion.

I want to try some Lizardskin as undercoating. The price per gallon is scary. Then you look at how many gallons they recommend to use and it gets worse. Still it's not Dynamat what are they selling it for these days $100 a square foot.

Re: sound deadening and insultaion.

I used a product called Noise Killer, comes in a spray or a gallon container. it can be hard to find but it works extremely well, and is about $25 a can.

Thats what google found.

Might want to check Summit as well, they have quite a few options in regards to noise/heat insulation.
