Another chapter in the world of heat and sound insulation, The Truth About Deadening Sprays and Paints

This time on the Owner's Manual, we dive into the decisions of sound deadening mat vs liquid sound deadening spray, Sound Deadening Mat or Spray: Which Is For Me?

Driving is as much an experience as it is a necessity. You should enjoy how your ride feels, how it looks, and even how it sounds. That last piece can be a challenge, because cars come with a fair share of noise, from structural hums, rattles, and squeaks to airborne sounds like wind, road noise, and horn honking.

Fortunately there are some great products to improve your driving experience (and they don’t involve earplugs). They’re called vibration dampers and a question we get all the time is, do you go with the mats or with a sound deadening spray?

Welcome back to another page in the Second Skin Owner's Manual

How To Reduce Road Noise in Your Car

If you want to reduce the road noise in your car, you’re not alone. Most drivers experience road noise of some kind, whether it be in an old hot rod or brand new compact car. Since no two cars are constructed or driven the same way, no solution is perfect for every road noise problem. Annoying exhaust drone, diesel engine noise, turbo noise, tire noise, and outside noise can all be a killer on long trips but it does not have to be!!!

Another chapter in The Owner's Manual: Sound Deadening Car Doors

lighter

Whether you’ve got a fully upgraded car audio system that you turn up to 11, or you enjoy playing some smooth jams to relax and de-stress. For a lot of us, our car is our mobile concert hall. But it can be tough to get into the rhythm when unwanted noise is infiltrating your sanctuary from all angles. From wind noise, to road-noise, to rattling sheet metal - most of us wish our car ride was a little quieter.

Got Trunk Rattle? Loud exhaust? Horrible drone sound? This week's chapter from The Owner's Manual is just for you...Trunk Sound Deadening

lighter

Much like your car door sound deadening project, the trunk is essentially an echo chamber made of metal panels with little or no insulation - we're talking some plastic paneling and thin carpet. Any flat or flimsy metal panel is going to vibrate and create structural noise. Look inside your trunk and what do you see? Big, flat quarter panels. A big sheet of metal as the trunk floor pan and covering the wheel wells. Top that off with a trunk lid that's often light, hollow, and not always firmly attached. You see a trunk. We see one of the loudest parts of your vehicle. 

Reach out to us at any time with your noise and heat insulation needs.

This week's edition of The Owner's Manual: WHY CHEAP DEADENERS AREN'T WORTH IT

lighter

If you like to rock out in your car, listen to podcasts, or chat with the fam on your way home from work, then you know how annoying a noisy car can be. When your ride rattles and shakes (and not in a good way), it’s time to think about adding some sound deadening material to dampen the distractions. But don’t cheap out on your sound deadener, or you could end up even more annoyed.

Just in time for the winter storms and the off-season projects, just what you've always wanted to know...How do I insulate my ride for heat and cold!!! 

Get everything you need to know in this week's highlight from The Owner's Manual:

Understanding R-Values and Automotive Heat Transfer

lighter

 

Proper car insulation is the best defense against burning your forearm on the center console (looking at you, Corvette restorations) and getting hot feet when accelerating. There’s a lot of buzz about what materials to use, what their R-values are, and what that actually means for you and your passengers — we’re here to set the record straight.

Read on to learn everything you need to know about car heat insulation, including good insulators (closed-cell foam), bad insulators (foil-faced bubble wrap), and what next steps to take for a more comfortable ride.
