I was thinking the same thing. Not sure what I would be the point of soundproofing a car anyway. I guess you could sound proof it so you can play loud music and others couldn't hear you.Tex's Ridge said:Soundproof? The quietest pickup truck in the world?
I don't have a Ridgeline yet but I'll chime in here as I used this on my 2003 Toyota Matrix. It is a sort-of asphault-like material, black, more a very thick liquid-like consistency on an aluminum backing. It's very sticky and very heavy. I applied it to the four doors of my car and while it did help a bit, it didn't make a huge difference because I didn't do the two biggest areas for sound-infiltration: the floor and the roof - I'm just not brave enough to pull the headliner out for fear of breaking it, and I simply gave up after dealing with the doors. The big downside that I found, and this probably only applies to those of us living in very hot summer states, is that the asphault-like material has a tendency to liquify in the heat. I've found drips from under my doors of this stuff, gotten it stuck on the back of new pants, etc. - it's a mess to clean up, let me tell you. And it was a very time- and patience-consuming job.RIDGE PATROL said:shovelhd has obviously used this stuff and the pervious posts have not, I thought that they quit making it with asphalt but not sure 100%. I have soundproofed all my vehicles including my Audi and it makes a much quieter ride and the doors seem/sound alot quieter.
It was something a guy on matrixowners.com, an audiophile who'd won sound competitions with his car, swore by and sold himself, and many others used it without incident. It might just be a fluke - maybe one section I used had a problem, because this dripping occurs only in one spot on one door. In the future, should I choose to do this again, I'll steer clear of this type of stuff - Hushmat sounds like it's not prone to these types of problems.RIDGE PATROL said:what brand did you use i have used dynamat and hush mat and never had any problems with smell,dripping or anything like that
