Been told by many that that stuff does not do well, because the adhesive is a tar based product and as the heat increases, it's effectiveness decreases and makes a nice mess of everything.

Maybe I should have added not to use the adhesive they suggest. From my source basically you use a reverse rivet to hold them in. Think about the underside of your cars hood. The attachment device uses extremely strong adhesive to stick to the inner box. Looks like a short upside down nail. Stick the sharp point through the insulation, then cap with a inch or so diameter cap.

The installer used contact cement to secure my replacement insulation. Never had any trouble with it coming down.

Sorry I don't have a complete answer for you, however I purchased mine from a local RV store. It was the exact same stuff that Overton's was selling, and was half the price. I won't be able to get the information for another week, however will get the manufacturer and contact info for you when I get back home.

BriEOD had his old motorbox sprayed with bedliner (linex). Said it worked well. Not sure on its noise reducing qualities though.

Thanks.
DId my 94 last year. The Dynamat didn't really help much, on either sound or heat control.
(Wrong material, wrong application.) The Thermplex, etc. is used in the hvac business, and works amazingly well, for heat control...probably not so well on sound control. I used 1/2" fiberglass duct liner, and spay adhesive. Still not as quiet as stock.

The orginal material (foam) is used in the home speaker cabinet construction (speaker grills/interior baffling) in the past. Yes, it doesn't last forever, but best for sound control/heat. Try googleing, home speaker kits.

Hey Craig ...

In an effort to not get near the line that defines "promotions of products/services", I'll keep this brief. If you, or anyone else, are interested in more detail, please feel free to pm me.

The stuff that Overton's was selling was "The Insulator" and was specifically branded as "thermal-acousitc insulation". I was able to purchase a packaged 4'x6' sheet (forgot which of the two thickness I purchased) from a local RV store out of their product/supplier catalog.

I'm fairly certain the stuff is Manufactured in AZ by a company somewhere near Chandler.

Hope that helps ...

Btw, speaking from experience ... DO NOT store/leave the shipped package with the blue ink on your upholstery if you don't get to the project after you order this product. Mine bleed onto the upholstery and dyed the white into a blue in some spots. I couldn't, nor could any of the professionals, get the ink out, and we had to redye/paint the seats with a color matched white.

Good luck with your project and go safely enjoy the water!

I bought acoustic insulating foam from McMaster-Carr . . . but haven't had time to install it yet since I'm just finishing installing my new upholstery.

I ordered 8' of the 1 inch skinned adhesive-backed. It has the highest noise reduction coefficient. Specs say adhesive is good to 225 degrees.
