I'm really loving my AT so far, too. I did severe overkill to many but it sure as hell worked. Stick to very smooth plastic, sticks to glass, anything.

If you use it wisely a 25 sq ft roll will go along ways, it should be enough to do a trunk and a door or two. If you do not use it wisely it will not be enough to do a whole trunk.

What do you consider using it wisely? j/c

For instance on a door, no more than 5 sq ft should be needed but some people have used 15-20+ sq ft on one door which is not needed (I used less than 20 sq ft to do all 4 of my doors.) I would start with 25-50% coverage and go from there. After applying it if you feel you need more then add more. Covering 100% and/ or doubling up will make the roll disappear fast.

I know this issue might have been beaten to death before, but at the time I wasnt interested enough to pay attention. I know I read a post from a member here that was very thorough on how to sound deaden specific areas of a vehicle. I wish I would have bookmarked it at the time because it was really good info.
Please explain what kind of coverage I should give certain shapes of the vehicle:

Large flat areas-
curves-
Trunk floor, curving down into the spare tire area-
Rear quarter pannels-
sheet metal behind rear seat(non folding)
rear deck-
Trunk lid-

I know this is a lot of info, and honestly, I am being lazy by asking. I do plan to doing my own research, but the more info, the better.
This is really a testament on what kind of guy is running this company. Any other salesman would fire up a buyer and have him believing he needs to double and maybe tripple his layers and use 3-4 different products of theirs by doing so. I appreciate the integrity.

Also, I don't want to step on any toes of those that use the fatmat brand. But, I bought 50sqft of the stuff 2 years ago and only used half to deaden the back of my F150 and both front doors. The residual amount sat in my garage the whole time throughout hot and cold weather and I kid you not, that stuff has actually shrunk on the wax paper backing. Is this a good or bad thing? I'm not sure, but my guess is it's not good.

Every car is different so it is hard to say exactly how much you need, this is why I said start with 25-50% coverage and go from there.

IMO FatMat is garbage and is basically Peel & Seal with a logo printed on it. It shrinking doesnt sound good either.

Sounds good...when it comes to deadening a roof with something like MDF do you deaden first then put the MDF on? Or you don't even need to deaden if youre putting wood on there?

It is, a few years ago the owner was called out, somebody found another domain registered to him where he was selling roofing material, come to find out he was just putting a different name on the same product and marketing it for car audio.

I do not have to much personal experience with putting MDF on roofs but I have seen it done both ways.
