:w Dave,

I plugged in Heat Barrier into the "Search Tab" near the top of the page and came up with quite a few threads.. Here is one about Heat Barrier Kits.

I was curious why the thread about when I did Rare didn't show up, so I tried Rare Phase II.. it's not a lot of information about the heat/sound barrier, but it was nice to go back and read the old thread... I thought I'd post it incase others are going through the process of working on their old steeds too ;) :Steer

When I redid my carpet, I first added the sound deadener stuff (like thick tarpaper with an adhesive backing) to nearly everys quare inch in the cockpit (including behind the doorpanels).

I put a layer of heat insulation (one side had foil) ontop the sound insulation. Then the layer of carpet. It made a big difference in curtailing the sound. However since the top stays down, I can still here the exhaust.

Just redid my interior with cool-it sound barrier and heat barrier. Have not got the car out yet to check it out. This is what they used in the corvette fever project car.

Dave,

You'll be pleased. I used the Lowe's stuff last year over a weekend. I was also able to repair some small cracks etc., that were hidden under the carpet.

Dave, Just to let you know. I also use the stuff from Lowe's. I put it under the carpet, the consol, and up in the back storage space. Not only did it make the cockpit cooler in the summer, but it also deadened the sound of my Flowmasters. Well worth the effort, and a hell of a lot cheaper than most kits.
