Hey guys,

Need suggestions to replace the foam lining on my 1994 Prostar 190 engine cover.
The stuff is breaking apart and falling down on the motor.

What can I use to replace it and get good sound dampening while staying safe ??

thx

G.P. Burdell

Dynamat is a good choice.

I bought the original stuff from an upholstery shop when I redid my 1990 PS. You can buy spray adhesive at auto parts store. Dry cut/fit it first then spray. I took the box off the boat and it made it easier.

I tore mine out of the 1989 ps and rhino-lined it - did a nice, neat, take your time and mask everything kind of job. It's quiet, cooler than foam and you can wipe it down. I'd recommend it. Buy it at a parts store in black (may be called Duro-coat)

That sounds awesome, If i would have had it to do over i would have gone with a more durable surface as well.

If you do that, sand it down good inside which will not only remove adhesive but help the bond - wipe it down good with alchohol or spirits - takes maybe an hour from start to finish.
