I'm gonna insulate the interior with mobile home roof repair. Comes in rolls. Tar on one side, foil on the other. Kinda like dynamat except 1/10 he price

The roofing products can be problematic- if it melts any through the seems it may bleed up through the carpet & make a mess & stink. Same on the vertical- might bleed through panels, etc. That pad is pretty cheap and the ones for over the floors are even less- all the sound deadener (molded to factory style) is only like $50.00 It gets hot in the car w/ the windows rolled up in summer- be careful on what product you go with if you're going that route.

By the time OPGI came out with those, I had already made some. Maybe later on I'll replace them....

I would post a link but their website is horrible! They have both the jute pad and the asphalt die cut pad

I put brand new factory stuff under my carpet years ago. Still looks great. But I just bought some GTMAT on ebay for $110 for a whole kit. They have a nice youtube video comparing them to other manufacturers. Reasonably priced and 80 mil. I'll be using gtmat instead of the factory stuff.

Every time I used to go on OPGI's site I could never find much for my 77. Plenty of other good vendors out there and @ the same or better prices. I'm staying with factory heat shields for a couple of reasons, the 1st is that it will keep out enough heat & noise but I can still hear my exhaust & engine notes from inside the car, as intended back in '77. Second- fairly cheap as compared to all those kits out there & I'm not building a concourse car. Just wanted to post the link for anyone that might be looking for that specific item, thought it was interesting- ya' know?

I used the stuff that is like foil on one side and carpet pad on the other with spray adhesive when I did the carpet on my 73 (Which im still not happy with) . Seemed to work good. My friend used Dynamat on his Camaro. Came out good really quiet inside.

Completely agree about Opgi's site! I hate it, I just get their catalogue very year, far easier to see it all there. They actually do a great job on their catalogue!
Great that you found the link to other available suppliers though!
