Fiberglass tubs and Rhinoliner (or equivalent)...

I have a fiberglass tub on my CJ that is covered with a liner pad and carpeting. After 4 wheeling this weekend I have come to realize that the carpeting has to go. Here is the problem, it provides a fair amount of insulation from both trail and road noise.

1) Has anyone with a fibergalss tub used a Rhinoliner or LineX type product on their fiberglass?
2) Is the noise louder/softer than with carpeting?
3) What is the best type of product to use?

Cheers

I have Herculiner inside and outside of our fiberglass tub, not sure about difference in noise since I have never had carpet in the Jeep. A lot of people have done it, with a 'glass tub the prep work is very important.

What kind of prep-work is necessary besides sanding and then cleaning of the glass?

Depends on the product, some just say scuff and wash, some say wipe it down with Xylene or equivalent cleaners, some need MEK (nasty stuff), just follow the mfr. directions and you should be fine.
