You can save yourself a TON of money buy using self adhesive rubber roof matting. It is the same thing as Dynamat but WAY cheaper. Comes in 4 foot wide rolls at Lowe's and Home Depo. All dynamat did was brand it for automotive use. Have a look!<p><br> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0"> Just buy me a case of beer with all that money I just saved you <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: Dynomat GTFO (Chilled Man)

I have read about this sort of material and looked for it at Home Depot with no luck in finding it. Can you post a link from Lowe's website?

You won't find it at Home Depot. It's available at Lowe's under the name, Peel 'n Seal, IIRC. I've been using it as well, the only drawback is you will get a tar smell for a little bit, after that its very similar to Dynamat.

Re: Dynomat GTFO (Chilled Man)

<br>Chilled Man - Dynamat is rated to 315 deg F while Peel n Seal is rated to 180 deg F. This could be a problem in the warmer climates causing bonding problems and possible damage to window mechanisms. I would recommend caution in using Peel n Seal in doors. Other locations will probably be just fine. <p>

These are not even close to the same. One is butyl based (dynamat), and the other rubberized asphalt (what chilled buys). The former works great and will last. The latter is smelly, will fail, and is worthless.

The only problem with Dynamat is the weight. I probbaly added over 100lbs with my R. I'll need an ECU flash just to compensate. But, it's quieter by far.

If we're looking for dynamat alternatives, I hear <A HREF="http://www.hushmat.com/Home_Page.php" TARGET="_blank">Hushmat</A> is the exact same stuff only a lot cheaper.

The hushmat foam is FANTASTIC. But it's expensive.
