How much dynamat/deadner did you use?

For those of you who have used some sort of mat to deaden sound in your truck, how much did you buy and use? I plan to do all 4 doors, the floor, the back wall, and the roof. Will 150 ft. be enough? I will be using Second Skin Damplifier, just FYI.

Second skin comes in 80 and 40 ft. bundles. It's not cheap, but it out-performs and is cheaper than dynamat extreme. I'm having a hard time swallowing nearly 400 dollars for 160 sq. feet though!

Ouch! Well, just save up... that's what I do. Every paycheck I put some money into my savings, I try not to touch it unless I'm dead broke and need gas.

I only spend money on 3 things: school, the girl, and the truck. Thankfully it's summer and my girl isn't a heavy spender I'm more worried about whether it's worth it. From the sound deadener showdown it really sounds like it is though!

you don't need to cover everything, I think I read that like 65-75% of surfaces is all that needs to be covered

Lumadar did it to his truck, but if I remember right he had either 3 of 4 layers of it! I don't know how much that took though, try sending him a PM

um
tar = made from oil
rubber = made from oil

all basically the same product, just altered.


not trying to argue but you could save a butt load of money

im using fatmat and im not done yet....i got 100sq ft, and i have 50 left.

i got floor, 2 layers on rear, and the roof is done. its going to take the rest of the 50 to do the doors. look to get 150sqft just to be safe and then double layer some of it if you have extra

Ok guys there's no way peel n seal, roofing material, or anything made from asphalt is going in my truck. 1 day in a black truck with texas heat would have my truck full of aluminum foil and a gigantic puddle of asphalt goo. Secondskin and Dynamat extreme are the only fully butyl compounds in sound deadening material, so that's what I need. Read the second link I posted, you might learn something. Do a google search. You'll find lots of people with peel n seal literally falling off and out of their cars. You'll also find alot of people who get a nasty hot asphalt smell on even mildly warm days. Many of even the 'designed' to be sound deadeners are nothing more than asphalt. I'm sorry to say, but fatmat is included. The weather might be different in MO though so I can't say anything about that. I'm just curious how much of it y'all needed.

and sorry about being in the background on that lastone

and to answer your question
for that job it was around 80 sq ft. we ordered two bulk packs and had some leftleft over from a previous vechicle. the previous was "tsunami" not all that different from the xtreme just a tad thinner. and it is much quieter now. def an investment to make. if you get it off eBay rather than retail it should be cheaper; you know just fyi

and dont buy the wooden dynamat brand roller from crutchfield. it gave out on the back wall. i just started using vise-grips to hold the wooden rollie part to turn the pos into a masher. after that failed my mom's pamperd chef pastry roller did the trick beautifuly. and somewhat accidentaly we found that a rubber mallet works too. i dont know about the structural integrity of the rubber roller but def dont buy the wooden

oh and my truck is a reg cab FORD RANGER EDGE, and her name is Charlene
