63 Impala Sq. Footage

Does anyone happen to know the square footage of the 1963 Impala floor including rear seat pan? My wild guess 70 sq ft.

Seven by ten seems a little large but I have no idea. You buying carpet?

I'm trying to budget for sound/heat proofing. This stuff is over priced for what it is...kinda reminds me of the stuff a snake oil salesman would sell.

The only reasonable stuff on the market seems to be a spray on product "Lizard Skin" from Eastwood...got the butle in it so its pretty good stuff and won't smell up the cabin like the asphalt products on the market.

You are right about that. I'm trying to sound/heat proof the floor and roof on a 1963 Impala and need some accurate footage. I don't have the body so I'm unable to take measurements.

The deadner is outrageous in price...by the foot you can't believe what the manufacturers think this stuff is worth. Personally, I think they are gouging and you know what happens when you get greedy.

Perhaps some one may have a better solution out there. I almost refuse to by the Dynamat stuff on principle. Since when should deadner go for $20 - $30 a square foot? That's simply outrageous and the sooner people push back and go elsewhere the sooner the price will get to normal. It would also help if they stopped paying Chip Foosh so much money for an endorsements. I don't want to pay to have his mug on my packaging. I opt for the magic maker and give me a discount.

As you can tell I'm not a fun of paying a company to promote their product. I say forget the marketing and give me a good price. I'm much happier with a good price versus a picture or graphics on packaging.

I used an extra layer of jute padding under my carpet and it did a fine job. Bought the extra thick stuff and it was about $10 sq yard. I think I bought 2 sq yards for the whole interior and had plenty leftover. It was a bit tough to cut and fit as it's so thick but definitely don't regret it. Any auto upholstery shop should have it.

I don't recall how much they used, but I can at least offer some sympathy for the pain of the price. I pretty much had everything inside covered in it, even up under the dash and under the roof, as it was all stripped down at the time. And I can tell you that it did make a big difference on how quiet my '64 is, I barely have to adjust the radio volume going from freeway speeds to a stop.

WOW! That looks like a lot of material. Any way to figure out how much they used? Did you use on the roof as well?

I wish I knew how much material it was. I did do the roof as well and so far after 2 years including some hot California sun, it is sticking just fine

I'm in Texas (Houston) hot and humid. This stuff sticks no doubt. The cost is what's outrageous. About 1/3 - 1/2 the cost of flooring for your house, really? Totally over priced.

I tried to look at it this way, that was the only time I will have the car all apart like that so it could be installed, so go with the sure thing rather than risk having to re-do something.
