This product sticks like no other I have ever used!
Thanks again Coleman!

Carpet came from Stockinteriors.com also a great company to deal with.

1994 GMC K1500 suburban. I picked this truck up cheap and it needed carpet and all the factory deadener was dissolving from being wet. The previous owners were "just hosing it out" and nearly ruined it. I forgot to take pictures before I took it apart but they start soon as it was empty.

Holy rust haha.....


Looks good man, keep up the good work. I am glad to see you did something about the rust rather then just covering it up as many would have done.

Just surface rust man except 1 drain. Rust was dealt with 100% before covering.

Thanks man. Guess I should ad that this was not audio related. Just replacement of the factory stuff.

That's what it looked like after I saw again. Nice covering it up though.

Awesome build man!
You did some good work there!
Which one did you use? 60 or 80mil?
Also how much deadener did all that take?

Thanks man, it took tons of time.
The deadener is the 60mil as I prefer to do 2 layers always and sometimes 3 layers.
So far I have used 50sq feet of AT with plans to use another 30 or so sq ft.

I also used 80sq ft of the thin (40 mil IIRC) FatMat on the cargo area floor because I know it will get damaged back there and I know it will be way easier to remove Bahahaha...

Looks good. How much deadener are you going to end up using? I am interested in how well it works for road noise.

Soon as I actually take it off my property Ill post back about road noise and how well it insulates. I will have about 200sq ft total in the suburban. I am using it to replace the factory crap mostly. The original stuff was like cardboard asphalt and held moisture . Hence the rust IMO.

Are you going to throw any audio equipment in there? What did you do to get rid of all the rust (sanding, chemicals, etc...)?

I like those "old" 'Burbans. Can't wait to see how well the AT works and what else you do to the vehicle.

Thanks man.

Since most of it was surface rust I just sanded, wire-brushed and used an oil based rustoleum primer and paint. It set up as hard as a ministers peter.

Its just a winter beater and summer family truck so the audioz will be small but it will have a flipout and a sub or two.

Thats not what you need them. MLV is to stop road noise.

I'm going to be getting some of this when I'm ready to put in new carpet in my car, along with some CCF. Mmmmm, good.

Deadener does help with road noise but is not the solution to the problem. I always suggest to customers that the deadener there floor and doors with a deadener like AT, then apply MLV on there floor and doors if possible.

After 2 or 3 layers those panels were pretty dead I must say.
