    sound deadener stinks to holy heaven

    I applied a thick coat of ASD from this seller on eBay:

    I think I may have totally ruined my precious restoration project 92 Firebird convertible.

    This stuff stinks like hell a week later. Nothing's in the car and I left it closed. Now I'm leaving a window down and the trunk open to see if it'll dissipate.

    Does anybody have any experience with this?

    I asked the seller when it would stop stinking and am awaiting a reply.

    The two solutions I've come up with are 1) stripping the whole vehicle of this **** with a hose and a scraper. Or 2) painting over the whole application to seal it in and hopefully seal in the stink.

    What do you guys think? Thanks a lot.

    If you go down to the woods today, You're sure of
    leaving the doors and window closed would have left no where for the gasses giving off during drying/curing to go. With anything like this it should be left with plenty ventilation. If this is in a garage it would be best to put it outside with windows open. Obviously you then have a security worry.

    It's outside with a window and the trunk open now. Since I didn't do that for a week of initial curing are you saying I'm sunk? The gases and stuff really don't have a lot to stick to given that there's absolutely nothing in the car except the door panels which are being discarded soon anyway. Thanks for your help. Let me know if I really screwed up that first week or if it'll be ok in a while - maybe a week or two more of drying. Thanks.

    What does it smell like?

    Our liquid dampener smells like chemical mangoes for about 48 hours ~ a week depending on how sealed the car remains, but goes away pretty quick.

    Hell, I glassed a bunch in my car last week(full interior) and even staying sealed for 7 days, the smell is almost gone already.

    The ASD from this guy smells like some kind of bad mildewy chemical. Definitely not mangos which would have been better. After leaving the car open for a few days, the smell is almost gone. So it's all good. Thanks a lot for responding!
