Default Second skin products ongoing install by BD5034

First - full disclosure: I won a free door kit of Damplifier Pro. This automatically makes me love Second Skin.



Ok right off the bat... I have used several other deadening products, and my standard procedure for installing them is to rip the mat by hand and install it using nothing but the pressure of my bare hands to secure it on the surfaces.

That doesn't work too well for Damplifier Pro. This stuff is... beefy I guess is the best word? As compared to the other foil backed butyl products i've used, it's noticeably thicker, with stronger foil and more adhesive. This means that my hands were cramping up after installing only ONE sheet manually. I had to give in and begin cutting it with a razor and using the butt of a screwdriver to apply pressure. I HIGHLY recommend getting a roller tool, I wish I had. I don't know if you can even call this a negative, since it implies that you're getting a boatload more product for the same money, but it definately took a significant effort to install as compared to other products.

All the extra adhesive does its job. WELL. I don't know if anyone else has done this, but at one point I decided I wanted to pull a piece off and shift it a couple inches. It was a hot day and wow... the damplifier was stuck on. I couldn't get it off, so I just cut a new piece. That's something I haven't experienced with another deadening product. When I finished the area I deadened, I decided to play with it and smack the area: I tapped it with a ball peen hammer and hit it with my hand a little bit - sounds solid.

OK. Now I'm going to sound silly saying this because it'll practically sound like an advertisement... but I can't really help it - this stuff really IS that good. The luxury liner pro that I've put in my car practically eliminated a nagging noise that I couldn't get rid of any other way. I got rid of my rear seat belts and there are empty holes where the bolts used to be. This made the most ANNOYING whistling noise on the highway, and it was pissing me off to NO END. The stock sound barrier did absolutely nothing to block it out, neither did the sheets of fiberglass insulation that I put over it, nor the shool books and magazines that I threw there (haha). I put a sheet of luxury liner pro down over the whole area... Poof the noise is completely blocked. It's as if it doesn't exist. I can't possibly express how well this stuff works.

I'm not really done installing yet, but I'll post up pics of what i've done so far.

This is a picture of the stuff I ordered. 36 FT^2 of luxury liner pro, a bucket of sludge, and the free (thanks Ant) door kid of Damplifier Pro





This is my bare decklid in my trunk.






The deadening begins!

You can see the luxury liner pro (the black stuff that looks like a floor mat) underneath my fake floor in the trunk.




Here's the left side of the trunk - you can see the other side of the sheet of luxury liner pro.





This sheet right here.... this is the one that cured the car of that infernal whistling sound.

I did something cool while my wheel was off. I deadened the inside of the wheel well to help reduce the transmission of vibration and noise into the cabin.

Here's a picture of the area after I stripped it clean.





Now here's what it looks like with the damplifier in place





Keep in mind that there is a shield that goes over that whole area, so nobody will see the deadning - it will be 100% hidden.



There's more to come - I haven't even touched the gallon of spectrum sludge I've got. I also have two more sheets of luxury liner and more of the door kit. I'm trying to plan it out as effectively as I can so that I use it as wisely as possible.
