    Has anybody tried this to reduce inside cabin noise. I have read some other uses but have not tried it. Any feedback good stories or bad would be appreciated

    Put some of the herculiner in the trunk of a convertible I had stopped alot of noise but the odor from the stuff stayed in the car for almost a year and that is in a convertible with the windows down almost all the time.

    Are you talking about like a thick rubber mat? Or something like a Rhino Liner?

    Herculiner is a rolled on epoxy based bedliner similar to rhino liner

    Great stuff for noise reduction and underbody protection from almost anything. Fourwheelers LOVE the stuff inside and out on our vehicles!

    Downsides: Expensive. Very Permanent.

    Herculiner is a thinner, weaker, cheaper d.i.y. version than professionally applied LineX or RhinoLiner.

    Another effective d.i.y. alternative is Marhyde #4311 Professional Rubberized Paintable Undercoating. Also very tough stuff and even attractive. Nothing at all like the tar undercoating you generally think of.

    Hi I just bought a 25 sq ft. Of fat mat which is basically a cheaper version of Dynamat. I'm going to experiment putting it under the rear dash and I was thinking to stick it to the back of my door panels cause they are original and falling apart a bit anyways and it could help to reduce road noise or just help the car sound more quiet in general. I would love to eventually line the whole floor with the stuff... but speaking of smells it kinda stinks!

    I'm trying to cover up the sound of my FM exhaust.

    Make sure whatever you cover the floorpan with, know that some areas will get pretty warm, so keep that in mind, especially if you don't want things to start getting stinky while you're out crusin'.

    Nice car, split bumper '73's are hard to come by...great find! :D

    fatmat smells like a fresh repaved road when it gets hot. its a pain to install and it didnt give me a definite noticable difference in my truck. at least i bought the 25 sq ft to try it out first. LOL

    You are not going to notice much with only 25sq ft. I tried.
