    expanding foam

    hey there people....ok first off i get tons of ratteling from the bumper whenever the bass is on(even low volumes)...i already took off the my plates and frames and its still sounds like poop....

    so i was watching monster garage and they had this foam that expanded when mixxed with another liquid...so i got this idea, but i want to make sure of it first....
    can i pour sum of the foam into the bumper and let it expand and have a little hole at the bottom to let the extra foam out....

    or take the bumper off and put sum second skin and all that poop???

    ^^^^
    R U serious?! I'm not saying it's impossible, but I've never heard of this happening! I would think that the foam would ooze out holes, crevices etc. before actually warping sheet metal.



    After getting jacked , I'm finally ready to get back into the game! Going a little smaller this time. Just a little 12" RE SE on 600w.

    Re: expanding foam

    Yes,it will warp the sheetmetal if too much is used. I put some in rear trim panel below the rear glass of my 78 gran prix an it warped the hell out of it.The next morning I came out and the stuff was oozing outside of the car.I used way too much.Go SLOWWWWW.

    has to be exposed to air to activate it, i reckon

    after u use it, and the little bit that is at the tip of the dispensing hose gets hard, u can snip it off and the part that was sealed off inside the tube is still soft and ready to spray

    Is this really the case? Because I wanted to use it in a couple places around the box in my wheel well just to fill it out, but if I ever wanted to take everything out, I guess this isnt gonna be an option for me.



    I know, I still need to finish the trunk, im working on it.
