    how much weight does all the dynamat add?

    When I get my floorpans replaced in the 510 I might do that.

    i'm not sure about the weight. maybe about 60lbs total? but i do know that it makes a big difference. it blocks out all road noise from the floor and doors so you get more clear sound from your system. also i've been at car competitions and i stood outside cars with this stuff and could barely hear the systems.

    as soon as I get my new floors welded in I might do that. But I'm afraid they may rust out in time

    The shop my friend works at, don't bother dynamating. If they're doing a big system that requires stripping the whole interior, they take the car next door and have it rinolined. They spray 1/4" of bed liner material into the interior. This way, nothing gets missed. It works pretty well.

    the problem is that my car is a 30 year old rust bucket. the floor pans are rusted out. I need to fix rust in the trunk and floors have to go. (rotted out)

    I also need to strip the undercoating (whatever's left of it (probably a scraper will do because there's a lot thats deteriorated and rusted) I need to POR15 it or epoxy.

    I'm afraid that there's no place for moisture to go if I undercoat the underside and sound deaden the inside.

    I still havent decided if I want to race the car and delete the rear seat or restore and make it a functional car.

    Wow man... I just went through your whole Sound Domain section to check out your progress on building everything, very very very nice I gotta say, you have a ton of work into that project and it looks great... I want something that extensive when I get going on mine... however I dont want quite as much buildups in the rear (weight issues) but all the goodies are great.

    Just curious, if you were to guess what would you say all of that dynamat weighs... Id like to do that to my car but Im sorta trying to cut down on weight not add it... my Supra is 3450 to begin with, which isnt very light... Id like an idea what that would weigh, the factory sound deadening is acceptable I guess though.

    i really don't think that you would weigh the car down that much. i dont even notice any height difference right now. i have everything except the amps and speakers in it now. but i am going to be doing a lot of fiberglassing. so you might be all right

    but if you going to do this sound deadening stuff--be prepared to spend some time on it.
