    Heat/sound deadening material.

    I have an old 1086 tractor that we use for baling. On hotter days when you are baling a lot you can feel the heat coming in through the floorboards and firewall and the poor old A/C just can't keep up. Right now it just has a rubber mat on the floor cut from an old pickup bed liner mat, and nothing on the firewall, It used to have some foam on the firewall, but the adhesive failed long ago.


    What do you guys think is the best heat shielding product on the market? I would prefer a stick on sheet like Dynamat over a spray in product like lizard skin unless lizard skin is just that much better... Are the cheaper versions of Dynamat just as good? I'm not worried so much about noise as I am the heat. Will the stick on sheets adhesives fail over time due to the heat, or once you stick them down on a properly cleaned/roughed up surface should they be good for life?

      I used to use these guys in the car audio world, they have heat blocking ones too:

        I put lizard skin in a couple vehicles last season, have been happy with the results. Trans tunnel next to the collectors used to scorch, now can rest hand on it in dead of summer. I did most of the installation "wrong", using a brush instead of spraying it and installing inside rather than on exterior. Put a coating of spray bed liner over top to keep from wearing the coating away.

          Being that it's a tractor, Peel & Seal is an inexpensive alternative to Dynamat that can be bought at Homedepot.

            I picked up some Noico brand off amazon. good bit cheaper than dynamat. Seems to be good quality. It's available in Black as well, incase you aren't going to cover it up, it won't be so bright to look at. Also doesn't have logos plastered all over it.

              I've had good luck with Fatmat for sound, can't really say how much it helps for heat, but it's adhesive backed rubber and foil like Dynamat, just a lot cheaper.

              I'm in the process of putting this eBay Chinesium Sound Deadener & Heat Insulation all over my CTD W250 "farm truck," but the jury is still out, since I'm still in the process. It was pretty much the cheapest per sq-ft I could find, and is a dense foam, a little thicker than the FatMat and Dynamat stuff I've worked with in the past.

              I don't have any experience with Lizard Skin specifically, but I did line the tub of my Jeep with a similar product, Al's HNR. It's a latex (I think) paint with a bunch of ceramic micro beads in it. I followed the instructions, even conversed with their CS via email to make sure I was doing things right. It wound up being a complete waste of time. In my before and after testing, I wound up with a ~1% temperature reduction, not worth the effort.

                I made a post on the Facebook page about this due to shit melting in a current build.

                Second Skin is what I'd suggest.

                Peel and Seal will melt.

                  I wished i could justify putting sound deadaning into my truck...but its an 04 GMC 1500 with 160k and i dont really want to dump money and time into something I will not have for a while. Now i will hate myself in 5 years when i still havent replaced the truck.

                    I saw a thread on Agtalk a while back about this exact issue, seems like IH had an issue with this. I cant dig it up but most of the responses were to try to seal all of the holes and areas in the firewall, or buy a Deere.

                      Just got a lot of this for the cherokee. I haven't installed it yet so n clue if it works but the fsj community seems to think it does.

                        This is always the correct answer

                          I have used Kilmat I got off Amazon and it works fine for both sound and heat. I recently finished off the rear cargo area of my Explorer with this
                          https://www.ebay.com/itm/Siless-50mi...72.m2749.l2649
                          Its a little softer than the Kilmat, but is about the same stuff but in larger sheets and a little cheaper. I got it from this seller, told him I was in a time crunch and he sent it to me in two days.
