As far as sound deadening I was going to recommend a general roof patch material you can get at a supply store, because you can get a boat load of it for cheap and double up if you need to in certain areas. It is the same stuff as the dynamat only its not synthetic so you get a little of that asphault smell in the summer days until it airs out. Dynamat is great also and for a car that you intent to keep forever dropping the dough on it makes sense.

good luck with everything, looks great so far
There are a lot of comprehensive threads on Lateral-G and Protour.com as to why NOT to use that product. Roofing material that is...

Lay that Carpet!

The molded carpet from Classic Ind. was not that complicated and made my first rug upgrade a breeze! I just took my time and trimmed a little at a time until it was perfect.

The back piece on the sides where it tucks under the door sills and rear panel. The front section was more involved. Like the factory install, I split the entire front section in half over the hump. Then I trimmed the section along the firewall on both sides. Afterwards I focused on the hole between the 2 front sections for the shifter. The final section of trimming was along the kick panels. Then I could cut the hole for the dimmer switch and insert the circular plastic trim.

Next step will involve cutting the holes in the back section for the seat bolts, seatbelts and console!

The factory Jut padding is obviously not the best stuff but I left it in my very original first gens... I did Dynamat my driver and my restored Z including a double portion on the hump ... On the car I restored I used Dynamat on the roof.

In my driver you used to not be able to talk on the cell phone.. no way no how.. with the Dynamat it is much more quiet.


Thanks for explaining the meaning of the "X1". While cleaning the old foam from the seat brace I accidently removed the "X1" grease pen marking. DUH!
BTW....is that a pic of your COPO covered in Dynamat? Awesome restoration!

Love these products as well.


Progress looks great! Keep it up!
