    What can I use to get rid of the road noie in my Blazer under the carpet??
    Already replaced all door rubber.
    It needs to be price effective (low budget).
    And easily accesible. Also heat resistant. /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif

    First I would look at your tires that makes all the difference in the world. Next I would look to see if you have the right juke under the carpet and maybe double it in some areas. I have plans of line Xing the entire interior of the truck including the cab floor but that is not low budget. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Which Line-X dealer are you going to? I want to get my interior sprayed aswell but Rhino Lining is a total rape. They wanted to charge me almost $1600 plus I wouldn't have my truck for a week and I'd be in an import rental! I haven't called around for prices on Line-X, yet, so if you get some prices let me know.

    Do a search for "Brown Bread" It looks like good stuff /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif I am thinking of using it when I get that far with my truck.

    Are your rear wheel wells covered with carpet? If not, covering those with some sound deadening material will make a HUGE difference in the interior sound level. /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif

    I have a friend in Marshall TX that will do it for 400.00 with me pulling everything out first. He has his own customizing shop and does great work. 1600 is way out of line. Stomper thanks for the Brown Bread info I will look into that also.

    I went to home depot last nite and bought some alum reflect stuff on a 25ft x 4ft roll. Gonna give that a try under my carpet. Thought about using tar paper for roofing but its all black.....not good for summer!!
     
  9. I put brown bread from front to rear,except for the doors and roof in my Suburban last August. It was money well spent. I herculined it before I did that too. I can tell a major difference at highway speeds, I cant even hear my exhaust.
    Pics after install are here: my sub
