Thank you, I been getting lots of positive attention wherever I go

Becase it was 105F today I decided to remove the original headliner and asbestos isulation from 2/3 of the car (back for now). Cleaned off everything, stripped off adhesive residue, applied dynamat and dynaliner. Will be doing the trunk and front part of headliner soon.

headliner cut out and most of the deadener was loose already.


advesive removed


dynamat - for sound


dynaliner - for heat



INB4 - does it make a difference - yes. I did the same thing on my 245 and when it's 100F outside I can close the windows and just have ambient air coming through the vents and be comfortable. This cuts out a lot of radiant heat

That's a good thing to do. And the headliner will still fit over the insulation.

If push comes to shove, fill a styrofoam cooler with ice, stick a small 12 v powered fan in the lid and have your poor man's AC.

Even just the tar backed foil flashing I used in the wagon made a huge difference (on a TB budget, not a baller budget). Lower temps, lower NVH.

It's the black paper that's glued all over Amazons and P1800's. I have heard both: Asbestos and no Asbestos. I just replace it because it's usually disgusting and peeling off.
