    About 30 sq ft would be nearly perfect to get every square inch of the floor pan and some up the rear inner wheel wells. I used a total 28 sq ft of the mat and remember thinking another 2 would have been perfect. 28 sq ft cost me $50.

    The Noico looks like a good product. $67.00 is a bargain. 36 square feet would do the job too. My car has none in it and it is noisy and hot. Thanks for the info.

    What are all of you using for the roof as a heat barrier? Gets pretty stinkin hot here in Az and I'd like to put something up before I make a fiberglass headliner.

    I don't see why you couldn't use the Kilmat on the roof. Saw a YouTube video where a guy did it. It would also absorb some of the harmonics from the roof metal.

    Yeah I get that but what about a HEAT barrier? Sound barriers are different from heat barriers and it can't be very thick on the inside of the roof. Will the sound barriers block much of the heat?

    I would get some CCF that you will fit between the beams, mine is a bow style, about 1/2 or 3/8 and glue it between the cross beams and then if you don't need to use the cross beams for the bow clips, I would use 1/4 inch CCF for those sections , so you have a CCF layer covering the entire roof , I would also put a few pieces of CLD tiles in to stop the tin sound , worked great with bow style , check out this site for information , I have lots of extra materials left over as I ordered enough for two cars HAAA HA , he is closed, however his site still has a load of great information.

    Yep I've looked at that site several times but I like to hear from people that have actually experienced it. Your plan sounds good to me. Was debating that sprayable lizard skin I think it is....just close my eyes and hose down the interior...lol. And that will be a negative on the spray foam Bad-A...lol.

    I was also looking into lizard skin as well, it seems to work well, and the people I have talked to that have used it liked it. (just messy and you need to make sure to plug holes before you spray and pray)
