View Full Version : sound deadening

I'm new at this but someone must have found something to glue or spray into the doors, under the headliner, and under the hood to help quiet the drumming sounds. I've got my 1955 Commander coupe in the body shop for paint, when I get it home I want to do something? No door panels or headliner in the way. Any suggestions? Thanks

Wow, Bob, I'm at the same stage with my 55 Commander hardtop. There are lots of recommendations on this forum for that. I'm leaning towards a foil-like 3M material, one side sticky for the floors. I bought a foam rubber type hood liner from Studebaker Int'l and I'm thinking about something spray-able for the doors. I'm in Canada, so I will have the whole car sprayed at "Oil tech" underneath and inside all sheet metal surfaces to rust proof it. That material dries to a semi-opaque wax like consistency and "creeps" into all the seams. That should provide some soundproofing, too. I also used seam sealer anyplace I could. I'm wary about the headliner, as I had to patch a pin hole just above the drip channel and wind will destroy my new headliner if it gets in. I'm interested in what the other's suggest, too.
