GORGEOUS !!

Ever used Lizard Skin sound and heat insulater ? I've coated top and bottom of the floorboards in both my race cars and it 'REALLY WORKS' !
I brushed mine on, or you can use an undercoating gun.

Actually DD I used a product called Peel & Seal from Lowes, its identical to Fatmat and about half the price.

The stuff works great, use a wallpaper roller in the tight spots and it cuts easy with just a razor.
3 rolls knocked out the floorboards, gonna have to go buy 1 more tomorrow to do the doors and behind the back seat.










So then I tore into the cluster, got a good deal on a housing with solid tabs and a nice lens. The temp, amp and fuel gauges are in surprisingly good shape. I will be ordering the oil psi gauge from Gaugemarks here shortly. The circuit board has some minumal delamination but everything still works so a good cleaning, some new screws and polish up the old screws and it looks pretty good!





















Hope to get the door panels off tomorrow and insulate them. Need to start on the dash warp too hopefully Sunday

How thick is that Peel n Seal ?
Is it made to insulate(temperature) or deaden(noise)?
Am really enjoying the 'in progress' shots ! :

I just did some research on the Peel n Seal on the manufacturers website.
It doesn't appear to be a real affective insulator in it's mass, but reflects heat by it's lighter color and texture on the outside. I'm for sure going to get some to redo the roof on the 'Gearhead Motel' though ! Thanks for turning us on to it, 'Bone!

The stuff works excellent, some guys on the NastyZ forum turned me onto it. Some people say they use a blow dryer or heat gun to make it more flexible but I never needed to use either, just some pressure and smart cuts. Heres a pic of the product Fatmat compared to Peel & Seal and they are identical.

I like this kind of work though, hate body work, prep and paint. The car has great paint and the engine compartment is just a knock out. That makes me want to be as detailed as possible on the interior so it can match up the rest of the car!

Worked on the dash curl about 2 hours this morning. Burnt the heck out of thumbs and forefingers even with gloves on. What a PITA, I got the big curve out of it and the vinyl glued back down on the fiberglass frame. Might heat it up one more time and try to get it don just a little more. Heres the before pics.




Here is what it looks like now.
