Panel Heat Shield and Sound Dampening
I will be using a few different items for blocking heat and noise. The most effective way to block sound is a three fold method. I have to minimize the panel vibration with a rubber or asphalt vibration damper like DynaMat or FatMat. Applying the rubber or asphalt based damper DOES NOT block the noise it only minimizes the panels vibration so that the panel is not amplifying or creating noise. I will be using a combination of liquid and 80mil Fatmat. Next I need to block and or absorb the sound. I'm using an adhesive backed Acoustical Foam Absorber (AFA) with a Temperature range is -40° to +375°. It also has a fiberglass Reinforced foil-face and a rubber based Polyethylene Foam (RBPF). I will use these to block heat, absorb and block sound.
Fatmat applied to doors. This will be followed by the closed cell foam.
FatMat arrived so I grabbed the engine cover and applied a layer. After the mat was applied I then added a layer of the AFA. This should do an outstanding job of both blocking and absorbing engine noise as well as blocking engine/tunnel heat.
Compressor Panel and Cover
For the tunnel panels I am applying the AFA to the inside of the panels. This will both block heat and absorb sound. The next step will be to apply the mat material to the outside followed by the RBPF.
