HOW TO DO AN ADVANCED SEARCH.

Mon Jul 08, 2013 3:56 pm by Admin


For the benefit of 944Hybrids users there are two search functions available for you to use.
The purpose of this sticky is to explain the "Advanced Search" function because it is much more powerful and is the best choice when researching information.

When you log on to the site a list of options is shown in a line at the top of the page. One option is labelled "Search", use this option (NOT the search box lower down on the right).

After you click on the upper search option, a drop down box appears. At the bottom of this box is a radio button marked "Advanced …

Heat Shield / Sound Deadening

Post  Bluemach1 on Sun Aug 01, 2010 9:24 am

Any recommendations for affordable heat shield and sound deadening material? I know dynamat, fatmat, B-quite for sound. Any others that work as well but cheaper?

What about heat shield? I have to run the stock cats for Cali compliance, They will be almost right under the drivers and passengers feet. I need to laydown something so feet dont get toasted.

Took all of the old stuff out this weekend. The sticky, gooey, old stuff from the old carpet, sound mat removal was a a real PITA to removel.

Pegasus racing sells all the good stuff.....They also sell the NASA type gold reflective film if youre real serious! The big problem is the undercoating on these cars. Its thick and may melt with heat (fire?) if you dont scrape it off or make a shield like the mufflers.

Best and cheapest is aluminum sheet>fiberglass sheets>aluminum sheet above the cats. Or, simply install one cat in the stock location???

As Michael mentioned for the body-to-exhaust heat shield, use the AL/FG/AL sandwich. See my post on PH board from 4 years ago. Shocked

"For the body;

I made a heat shield for the drivers side of the engine bay. I don't have any pics in my album. The shield covers all of the frame and strut area, just like the stock passenger side.

I picked up a couple of sheets of annealed Al, from McMaster, and a roll of fibre glass fabric. I then made a sandwich of Al/Fibre glass/Al. I can't recall the exact width and length (~12"x24" I think). I rivited these together and then beat it (soft blow mallet) to the shape of the rails and strut tower. I added some slits to clear the boxed sections on the strut tower. I trimed the extra and drilled locating holes thru the shield into the frame. Threw some cosmoline in the holes and then rivited it to the body.

I bought: Alloy 1100 Annealed Aluminum Sheet .032" Thick, 36" X 48" from Mcmaster"

Can't beat the $3 heat shield.... 3 aluminum turkey bake pans (thick Al.) from Dollar Tree sandwiched together.... Just waiting on my 13/16" Master Cylinder to show up so I can put in on the Dual MC set-up then make the shield. Very Happy

As for sound deadening. I have used 30# roofing felt and brush on roofing tar in some vehicles. I may pull that trick out of the hat when I put my subs in the spare wheel well.
