Re: sound deadner

Don't know the brands and how they are made, but a good sounds deadener, is Air itself when its trapped into little holes or bubbles. So if you can find one which has a lot of little bubbles inside kind of like an aero Chocolate bar, it would be probably the best. Don't know though if there are even some that are like this...Another method, could be to use Expending Insulation foam and then afterwards cover it with Liner...But I've never seen the look it would do. But the sound proofing is surely good using this method...cause the expending foam is basicly a Spunge and then hardens. So its filled with little holes...[img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]It should be good as long as you don't put more than an inch of the stuff...cause its also hard to keep even...

I know that insulation Matts from houses are good sound barriers too...[img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img].

Re: sound deadner

MY opinon... since i do bedliners as a sidejob...Morton bedliner... It is a REAL bed liner... poly and all... I have seen herculiner wear through.... Most Carquest has them... or you can order it online for 149... plus you will need the applicator gun... and 30 or so.... NOW I know it is expensive but... you can do a bedliner per weekend for about 350-400$ becuase it is a reall.. pro job.. OR you can herculiner it... I have had problems w/ customers who bring them to me cause the herculiner didnt wear well....

Re: sound deadner

Ditto, I used hurculiner. It is not bad, it is durable for day to day useage BUT not a durable as a spray in. You do not "need" a spray gun for huculiner. I rolled/brushed it in.

Re: sound deadner

spray on under coating

$2.59 a can

12 cans to do the inside of a samuria

rubbery and flexes no breaking like bedliner
are you can find some two part epoxy paint that will do the same job

are you can use a two part polyurethan are a one part
you can get a clear polyurethan and add color to it..
to make any tint you want

If you really want to do it the right way
clean the truck remove everything
get 12 cans of under coating
spray the inside let it dry
then come back with a two part polyurethan(pick a color )

the polyurethan will cook it self to the under coating
Make sure you clean the surface before you start and after you spray the under coat// after the under coat has dryed cleanit again // you can put the polyurethan ontop of it

I use to do sail boat and speed boats for a living(painting them)

both paints will flex a little / and the under coatig will exsorb the heat form the floor board/ and works like a sound barrier

and you will only spend about $92 for all that
this is how i am doing mine 12 cans of under coating
1 1/2 gallons of colored polyurethan safty orange
it will be more than a 1/4 of a inch thick are more

rhino and the other bed liner are hard and not very flexable
they do thier job/

LOOK at it this way what would you have something hard , but only flexs a little

are something that will flex alot and is rubbery fill

gallon of rhino $125+
other bedliners$125+
12 cans of under coating and 1 1/2 gallons of polyurethan$92

and the bed liner poeple don't tell you that they are using a two part epoxy/are a poly base product/
Polyurethan will do the same job and alot cheaper

Re: sound deadner

i used herculiner in the gallon can to coat the bed of my 87 chevrolet truck and was so dissapointed! i rolled it in myself it looked ok for about a month, but it did not last. i wished i had gone with a spray in liner. i would not recommend herculiner to anyone.
