A few issues ago, we added some sound deadening concepts to our a ’68 Super Sport. While we were working on it, we began talking to the pros at Dynamat, and they showed us what to do to help keep our car cool from the heat. When we got to see the sample firsthand and learn about how their Dynaliner works to reduce heat; we were sold! We knew we had to add the product to our project.
For those wondering what the benefits are to adding sound deadening to your vehicle, the answers are easy. If you want to eliminate road noise, and get rid of the rattling that stereo bass can produce, then you should probably invest in some Dynamat Xtreme sound deadening. For the added dimension of reducing heat and creating a barrier between the inside of your car and the exterior, you need to add some Dynaliner. This patented designed insulation is the second part of insulating your car to keep the heat out. It is designed to be a peel-and-stick product just like Dynamat, making installation easy.
The combination of the Dynamat Xtreme and the Dynaliner is a winning combination for any build. When applied properly, it can cut down up to a 100 degrees of heat as evidenced by its response within the company’s heat box, which demonstrated just how responsive these products are. Now let us show you how we built up some quality insulation within a couple of hours using Dynamat Xtreme and Dynaliner on our Project FearleSS.
Axalta Coating Systems Paint Tip of the Month
“Warming up to spray a car”
A spray booth is a vital piece of equipment that serves a multitude of functions, which include filtration of harmful vapors and the running of a temperature that is right for paint material applications. A spray booth needs to run for several minutes to create the right temperature atmosphere. You should always warm up the booth along with the vehicle you are going to paint at the same time. This way the soon to be painted vehicle becomes the same heat intensity that is needed for paint temperature requirements. Always remember that only the person that’s painting the car should be in the booth. For other cold weather tips, please follow Cromax Pro recommendations on the 1.2 spray gun set up.
“Cooling down to spray a car”
When painting a vehicle in hot, dry weather, remember to increase the size on the fluid tip to be able to spray (wet) the product like it’s recommended. Prior to painting a vehicle that has been out in the sun, the body panels become really hot, so be sure to wipe down the panels with Axalta product no. v3921 that is kept in a cool area. This purpose is to help bring down the temperature heat on the car bodies panel. Advanced Collision/Body Shop is an Axalta Coating Systems product believer, and they also like adding 5-percent on solid colors that will usually take an extra coat to assure there won’t be any die back that might be caused by an extra coat of base.
