Default Cactus Sounds db blue "Sound Deadener"

This is a small write up I did about 4 years ago of this. I still have it in my van as of today and it's still going strong.


I got the opportunity to use some db blue from Christoph (Cactus) and it would be an understatement to say that it is impressive stuff. EXTREMELY stiff when dried after 24 hours of putting it on in a warm dry place.

It actually isn't too bad to install and took me about an hour to do the roof of an Astrovan after it was ground to bare metal.

Equipment needed:

db blue IS TO BE sprayed on but seeing as how I didn't have a sprayer at the time I decided to spread it on.

1)thin strips of your favorite sound deadener used to maintain the thickness of the db blue.

2)an accurate weight scale (up to 5 pounds) to measure the mixture of the two db blue materials and a pail.

3)a non-absorbing piece of material (plexiglass, plastic, etc.) to put the db blue on when installing it

4)coarse sandpaper for grinding the paint off to bare metal.

5)plastic sheets or something to cover your floor, dash, etc. from the staining of the blue color

6)work clothes and rubber gloves

7)a metal spreader to put the db blue on

8)someone that wants to get dirty Wink

SO.......

In a nutshell here's a couple install pics to give you an idea.

With the new sound deadener rule this may be something to try out....since thickness doesn't matter now.
