Question on Interior

Discussion in 'Chevy Trucks' started by misanthrope, Nov 17, 2004.

  1. I'm sure some of you must have restored you trucks to some extent. I had to do some surgery on my Blazer, this included tossing the ratty insulation that was under the carpet. Has anyone replaced it in there vehicle? There was three layers, one was a plastic sheet that was a PITA to get off the sheet metal, cardboard with felt attached, and some tar paper crap. All i have done so far was undercoat the sheet metal. Ideas as to where and what to use under the carpet? Something that wont hold moisture and is waterproof.

    You could try the rolled foam insulation that is used under laminate flooring. Available at any home improvement store. :)

    roofing ice shield on the sheetmetal will dampen the low frequency sound and save a lot of money over what they will charge at a truck equpment place. over that I would go with an insulation that is jute based to kill the higher frequencies, try an JC Whittney.
