  1. Day ~50-54 I figured the logical first step would be to install the sound deadening. I had purchased a bulk pack of Dynamat ‘Superlite’ on ebay in early 2015, when I grossly miscalculated my project’s timeline. I had decided on ‘Superlite’ to keep some weight off the ‘02. It was very easy to install and took me to about 5 hours in all, but I took my time. The next item on my agenda was to clean up some of the wiring, which included re-taping the old harnesses, removing the smog wiring and adding some new wiring. The new wiring would be used to power gauges (oil temp, oil pressure, water temp, wideband), aux fan, O2 sensor, radio antenna (I had the old antenna holes filed and am mounting a hidden one in the trunk). "Peter" is my son's name and it was done with the bit of POR15 I needed to dispose of. “Wiring harness” for the VDO gauges, I also made a separate harness for the gauge lighting which will run off a free slot, controlled by the dimmer. In order to power all the items, I decided to add a relay which would trigger when the ignition was on, this would supply power to a fused distribution panel. I would be able to run all the new items off this. Just to get a few items out of the way and show some “visible” progress, I installed the headlight buckets, auxiliary fan and horns. With the wiring at about 75% complete, I received my package from EZ Cool (http://ezcool.us/) and decided to proceed with the installation on the firewall (I got the idea from billpaterson). I plan on using the EZ cool, on the engine bay firewall, the floor pan and roof (interior ceiling). I picked up some 3M Super 90 spray adhesive because I heard unflattering reviews about Super 77. It has a pretty cool nozzle, you can control the spread and the angle of the spray. The EZ cool is very EZ to work with, see what I did there? F I’m hilarious. EZ Cool firewall with original metal heat shield. This week, I’ll be working on finishing the wiring and adding the ez cool to the floor pan (on top of the dynamat).
  2. PO of my 74 tii stuffed in a dingy e21 carpet that I finally ripped it out to replace with a stock carpet. Quiksteel'd screw holes, removed tar, rust reformer on surface rust, & painted with rustoleum protective enamel. Getting ready to lay down B-quiet mat but I have some concerns. PO put a large gash (3'' at the widest, 6'' long) the driver side tranny tunnel - I'm guessing while doing the 5-speed swap - which was originally hidden by that stock sound deadening piece, and filled in with spray-on insulating foam. The sound deadening was disintegrating from a years of a heater box leak, so I pulled it out and chucked it which maybe I shouldn't have. Decided to remove the foam and fiberglassed the hole, but now I'm wondering if the tranny tunnel gets hot enough that this would be problematic.
  3. Anybody know what sort of adhesive to use for the Blunt trunk lid insulation kit? I don't want to melt the foam,
  4. Is Woody still active on these boards? I've emailed him about buying some of his hood insulation pads but haven't gotten a response. If I can't get those, I was thinking of the BMP foil pads (http://www.bmpdesign.com/product-exec/product_id/1200/search_year/1976/search_model/5). Anyone have experience with these? Garrett
  5. Hey guys, I'm working on a few things currently. I'm wanting to replace the carpet on my 76. I've seen 1 piece molded and a 9? piece set. Any thoughts on what is better/more desirable? Also, does anyone have a preferred source for headliner fabric? Lastly, had anyone removed the original molded insulation and replaced with my a modern alternative like dynamat or anything like that? im open to recommendations. travis
  6. I need to wrap the air conditioning hoses (a/c) that run from the compressor to the firewall to protect them from the heat of the exhaust manifold. Can anyone suggest an appropriate material & the source for that material? (Yes, I searched first. ) Thanks! Bob
  7. Hey Guys, While looking around at stuff on CAtuned I noticed their 2002 project and some soundproofing / insulation they used behind the rear door cards. It seems they used expanding foam along the top of the rocker and around the front of the wheel well. I'm not sure if this is a good idea, I figure it could trap some moisture in those areas but I also don't know best... so I'm asking you guys. Thoughts? source: http://www.catuned.com/bfsprojects/details/10
  8. I've gutted my interior, and replaced the floor under the driver side. I also removed the passenger side insulation on the floor to check if I had to replace the pan there as well (it was just surface rust). So, I removed the molded chipboard panels that have foam on them. They are in pretty rough shape, and I wanted the communities thoughts' on if they are needed, or if I can just lay down some dynamat and call it a day? Any wisdom is appreciated!
