Does it absorb water?

Don't drink and drive. You hit potholes and spill it.

When I had my 90 I had good luck with this stuff on the underside of the transmission tunnel http://www.summitracing.com/parts/th...w6_RoC4bPw_wcB

It's has a super strong self adhesive, a layer of insulation and a layer of aluminum.
That stuff looks awesome, thanks for sharing. They are kind of proud of it ($) aren't they ?

Thanks for the comments and info.

I am going to try a combination of the "Boom Mat" and the Exmoor trim interior kit...we'll see where that gets me.

Since it's on the underside of the tunnel, if you go wading etc it gets wet/soaked etc.

I've driven 50 miles in 90 degree weather and have not experienced the heat others describe . PO complained about it when I purchased the trick but all good for me since I did some work to it.

I have a layer of this throughout the cab www.b-quiet.com/extreme.html. Followed by carpet (with heavier backing) and then stock rubber mats on floor. Also have my seat box covered both in and out with B-Quiet and new carpet. And the top has a better than stock hardura with better backing.

Hope that helps.

Prep work

Sam, this looks great. On our trip to CO last month the ac went out. Even tho a PO had added the Exmoor carpet, etc., it was still hotter'n hell on the exposed aluminum parts. What kind of prep work is required to do the engine side firewall and underneath by the exhaust system?

Heat shield and dynaliner the back side of floor mats

See photo of stainless heat shields I made up to match the 110 originals. I enlarged them where I could. They mount to the frame rail and the shield sits between the cat and the floor.
