Herculiner: Does it help quiten the ride?

For those of you who have did the inside of your zuk with herculiner, did it deaden some of the road noise?

Yes Herculiner on the inside quiets the noise compared to no carpet at all. But having carpet is quieter than the Herculiner.

The 2 together would probably be even better.

J-birds right, I have it and it did make a difference [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] but having carpet and the liner did wonders [img]images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

I have herculiner in my tub, and I think that it is pretty noisey especially with the softop on. Its probably quieter without the top. I only put two coats on, it would probably be quieter with another coat or two.

I think that it helped some, but when you drive a Samurai, "quiet" is a relative term!

howdy,
i can't really tell you if it is queiter, but i can tell you it is well worth it to have. i don't have a full soft top or doors right now, but my sammi is garage kept. but i can tell you it makes a day of wheelen alot easier to clean out. just whip out a hose and let it fly.

Re: Herculiner: Does it help quiten the ride?

I put two coats of the Duplicolor Bedliner inside my zuk. I didnt notice any difference in the sound level inside. It sounded a little less tinny overall however.

The only thing that made much difference was putting carpet down and putting "Heat Shield Insulation" from JC Whitney under the hood and on the firewall. Ziplock bags of polyfill in doors didnt hurt either, cheap too.

You might get on eBay and look for some cheap Dynamat clone material. Every once in a while someone unloads a large roll for a good price.

Actually, the Dynamat only makes sense if you're putting carpet back in.

Dynamat would work good in the door panels, but who wants to spend that kinda dough?
