    Ugh these cars are nothing but bare metal, I need to work on the interior so I figure Ill throw in some insulation while im at it.

    Right now I already have some old unused dynamat xtreme stuff for my doors. (got it cheap on ebay)

    I just need stuff for the ceiling and floors (for now)

    I'm thinking about trying something like eDead.

    What do you think?

    Should I go with a liquid?

    I've heard good stuff about the eDead, and read great reviews about the Brown Bread (can't rememeber who makes it, google search it). All of my experience has been with Dynamat xtreme, use it in my firebird and a buddy's mustang. it works well. i would use the mat tho, avoid the liquids. Messy and set up time kinda steered me away from them

    b-quiet makes brown bread and they replaced it with b-quiet ultimate

    ill be going with the eDead it seems, im doing work on the car tomorrow and ill probably order some stuff then also or in the near future.

    I used Raammat in my Tacoma, mainly because of price. To my surprise this stuff is actually really great. VERY easy to apply and the best part is that it doesn't fall off! (Original Dynamat users would know what I'm talking about :) )

    could you describe the differences you noticed in using it?

    im kind of new to using sound deadening, so im wondering if it makes a big difference in all the stuff sound deadening claims to make a difference in.

    It will be effective in reducing rattles and panel resonances, but dont expect road noise to drop much, if at all. You need a barrier like foam to reduce road noise. I've heard of people having good luck using regular carpet padding on the floor to reduce road noise. I'm going to try it one of these days when I get around to it.

    Whatever you use for the ceiling make sure it has a high temp rating.

    When you close the doors, it is definately noticeable there. My roof would flex heavily whenever I hit a low bass note, and the raammat also help control it. The noise and vibration from the floorboard did decrease a bit, but don't depend on it to kill road noise. Overall I liked the stuff alot, and its very similar to Dynamat extremem..just cheaper :)

    RAAMMat is great, and Rick, the guy who makes is a super guy to deal with. I have 100sqft of BrownBread in my car, and it is also a great product.
