restoration ?

I am in the process of starting to do a restore/fix my capri.
I was wondering if anyone has used eastwoods rust inhibitor spray? It's easier to do than por15. Also started to rip out that tar sticky Crap that they lay down under the carpet. What is out there that is lightweight to replace that ? I was just thinking bout not replacing it at all.

If it's gonna be a race car leave it out. If your gonna be driving the car on the street use dynomat. I did my entire floor board, roof, rear deck, under the back seat, and a little in the doors. It gives the car a nicer ride and makes the car feel solid. If I remember right, It took 2 boxes to do all of that and I'm glad I did it.

Re: restoration ?

good sound deadening goes a long way with sound and heat as well (based on type but most should help against heat as well)

Seems like it would add a whole **** ton of weight.

Re: restoration ?

possibly some weight but you have to decide if the weight is worth the return I guess.

I used 2 boxes to do the entire inside of my car which was 72 sqft and 32.5 lbs total. After removing all the old factory stuff that was hardly adhered after 24 years it really only added approximately 20 lbs evenly across the car. +20lbs for a solid feeling car or -20lbs for a rattle box. I don't know about you guys but I can't stand a car that rattles.
It was worth adding 20 lbs to me.

Thought it would be more than that. Agreed, definitely worth it.

Right now I'm just removing it to see where my rust areas are at. I even found my original factory build sheet. I still have the original door tag/sticker and the build tag thats under the hood.

Nice, I found my build sheet as well on my '84 when I stripped my sound deadening.
