Second Skin dampener?

Has anyone used Second Skin dampener? Dynamat is so friggen expensive up here that I'm not even going to bother with it.

I can get 36 sq ft of it for $190 or so from a local reseller here, Dynamat is is $375 or so for the same square footage.

I can cover my truck twice with the Second Skin for the cost of one layer of Dynamat (more or less...)

It also uses a butyl binder like Dynamat does.

Anyone tried it? I was in a car with raammat or something on a hot day and it stunk like asphalt, so I don't want to use it on my truck.

Check out a company called B-quiet http://www.b-quiet.com/
They are located in quebec I believe. Really great stuff. Used it myself on my first car.

I've heard good things about FatMat also... and it's a lot cheaper than dynomat.

It looks like both B-Quiet and FatMat use asphalt. I don't really want to risk that smell in my truck.

I guess I'll give Second Skin a try, although not for a few more paycheques... I'm broke. :(
