Introduction: Install Sound Deadening Material in Your Car! (fake Dyna Mat) to Make Your Car Sterio Sound Awesome!
ever see something that's all packaged nicely and sold for an exorbitant sum and think to yourself. "I could make that!" or "that's just _______ in a shiny package!" that's what I did one day when looking for sound deadening material for my car. Dyna mat is a really great product that really cuts down on road noise, body noise/reverb from your awesome system and other annoying sounds in a car. The thing is that it's expensive! I realized that dyna mat is actually sold at Home Depot for a completely different purpose! it's used as a flashing material on house roofs!
the HomeDesperate sells the stuff for 20 bux a roll vs dyna mat's $100!
Step 1: First Step Peel It Off the Roll.
I'm a little slow sometimes so it took me a minute to figure out how to get it off the roll. Now is also the time to make sure your surface is clean!
Step 2: Cut the Piece to Size
I tried knives and my built-in bionic eye laser to cut the stuff but I found that a old pair of scissors worked the best to cut the junk. it's got tar on the back side of this stuff so the scissors may get a bit gummy by the end of this.
Step 3: Peel the Backing Off and Start Smoting It Down
I used this special roller thingie to press the stuff down into all the nooks and crannies. it worked good. I don't know where the roller thingie came from. maybe from a magic toolchest or something. in fact it may be the only one like it on earth... but it worked great.
Step 4: Do That All Over the Place.
it doesnt' have to look perfect cuz usually it's covered over by something. like.......
Step 5: ...CARPET!!!!
Now just to do the rest of the floor area, inside the doors and stuff....
