Ka-ching but installs easily and hassle free
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
In spite of the hefty price tag for this product, I gave it 5 stars because of how it performed during install. I was prepared for a real bloody battle dealing with Dynamat after reading another customer's review describing "death by a thousand cuts" from the foil facing. They highly advised wearing gloves while handling it. I've been building houses and working with my hands for 45 years now. I've never liked wearing gloves because you lose tactile contact with the materials you are working with (other than grouting tile or plastering walls!). I didn't wear gloves when I installed the 9- 24"x48" sheets of Dynamat in my 1980 Honda Civic 3 door hatchback project car. I didn't get a single cut. Dynamat is very pliable and form fitting; it will mold itself (with help from your fingers, especially your thumbs) into any shape you might encounter in your car's roof, door panels or floor pan. It will pull off of itself or any material in your car if you accidently position it incorrectly. It cuts like a breeze with a utility knife or a sharp pair of scissors. The aluminium facing is tough and flexible; it will not rip or tear unless you really want it to. Don't try and use the full sheets; do small areas at a time (your car's interior will probably make you do that anyway) and overlap edges to get full coverage. I did my roof, 2 doors, floor pan (removed seats) with the Mega Pack and used 3 - 32"x50"x 1/2" sheets of Dynaliner on roof and floor. Sound review coming.
Pros: Being a builder, I like products that do what they say they will. Dynamat Extreme went on like a breeze; I didn't have to help it along with a single four letter adjective and for a carpenter that is saying loads.
Cons: Cost. Cost. Cost. I don't know why it is so pricey; maybe the manufacturing process uses expensive materials and technology. I don't know. The true test will be when I get on the open road and fire up my brand new sound system from Crutchfield. I will know immediately if my time and money were well spent on Dynamat products. Stay tuned; I will send in that review shortly.
