    i did, didnt do that much that i could tell, but even if it doesnt do enough for you, you can still put that tar paper over it. It cant hurt.

    the entire interior of my truck is herculined. I like it a lot. Its tough, its cheap, and it protects against rust (which i hate with a passion). That said, it isnt the best sound deadener around, probably because it goes on relatively thin (even with 3 coats). If you want to sound deaden with a bed liner, Line X or Rhino would prolly be a much better solution.

    I lined the inside of mine with herculiner too. I would have to agree its too thin to be an effective sound barrier. It can't hurt though. I like the idea of the inside being coated. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I put 1/2" pad and carpet in my son's 68 Bronco and it was not quiet. Later removed it all and Herculined it as well. Put pad and carpet back in, what an improvement this was. I used almost 2 gallons of Herculiner on the inside of my K5, installed a 1/2" carpet pad and then new carpet. Like the results of Herculiner product in both trucks.

    try a product called "dynomat". My buddy had an older 4 runner that was lined with that stuff on the interior under the carpet and it was awesome!! May be the "tar paper" stuff you are talking about
