    A few days/weeks ago I saw a posting for a company that sells a cheaper version of Dynamat - I have tried all the search terms I can thing of but the thread does not come up. Does anyone remember the name of this company and the website? Thanks

    I sorta remember that post. I think they were talking about using adhesive backed, rubber roof membrane material that's made for houses. The only problem is that you have to buy it in fairly large quantities. Most home centers carry it up north, but I'm not sure how easy it will be to find in Key West since it's main claim to fame is that it helps prevent damage from ice dam buildup. [​IMG] That's not exactly a problem in your part of the world. [​IMG]

    Nope. I just checked "adhesive" and no luck.....

    They talked about how cheap it was and the sizes it came in. This is killing me. I am so pissed I did not bookmark it.

    Yes....

    I saw that thread and it is not it. This product is also sold in 10"X10" sheets but is less than a dollar per sheet. I'm still looking........

    Hmm, perhaps you saw it listed over in the Audio forum? Let us know if you find it! Sounds like a screamin' deal. I've always thought that DynaMat was some of the most overpriced stuff on the planet! [​IMG]

    corvetteforum.com wil have every soundproofing product ever made. Try searching there for ideas if all else fails.

    I think I remeber some dynamat knock-offs also....

    The thread you are looking for IS in the Audio section....you just used the wrong keywords:

    "...Grace Ice and Water Shield was $90 for a 225 square foot roll. ..."

    Don't ask me how....but I remembered somehow that the word "ice" was a part of it. Searching for the word "ice" will get you the complete thread.....

    OK,

    Now I'm searching frantically all over the Audio archives too..

    I found a thread talking about RAAMMAT......50 sq ft for $69. Any chance that's what you were thinking of?

    I'll try to post the link here:

    Greg - did you find anything? I have searched all forums using the search feature. I really do not want to go through two weeks worth of postings to find this but I guess I will. I know that the thread in question does not mention "ice" or anything similar. THE SEARCH GOES ONNNNNNNNN!~!~!~!~!~!

    i sell a cheaper version at work (car toys) but honestly the stuff that works really good is the stuf they use to sound deaden the engine bays of large ships. Any mariene supply store/ boat dealer shoudl carry it. I want to say it's like 80 dollars a box but i can't remember. The stuff works much better than anything you can buy at a car stereo shop and you don't need to heat it to apply.

    You wouldn't by chance know how you do go about putting it in? I don't wanna buy something and have to tar it in or something because if you ever need to remove it, it's a nightmare...!

    To install dynamat, or any other cheep knock off, you simply prep the surface your applying it to by cleaning it with a solvent that dries with no residue. Like rubbing alcohol or wax and grease remover. Then all you do is peel off the backing and apply to your surface of choice, conforming it to all the grouves and joints of the pannel. Thats where a heat gun comes in handy. The hotter it is the stickier/ easier to work with it is. It really is pretty easy. But if you get the stuff I menctioned above, you dont need a heat gun. Just peal and stick. :) Oh, and as far as removal... hehe um, think of removing rhinoliner.

    Ok so I can't read and it's late... lol........ anyhow I was meaning the ship stuff. I know how dynomat works and it's too spendy. But the ship stuff is just peel and stick... that's all? If that's it I am gonna go look for it tomorrow!
