Sound deadening material

Any use any of that modern sound killing stuff like Dynamat, Fatman, etc.? I know it would probably not be looked upon favorably by restorers, but as I remember these cars were not very quiet in this regard. It worked great on my C6. Just looking for opinions and experiences before I get involved. Looking to learn.

I used Eastwood's Dynamat "clone" on my 69, so far I like it a lot. Who cares what anyone else thinks? It's your car

Used something called Frost King from Lowes on a buddy's '67. Waaaaay cheaper than Dynamat or Fatmat. Seems to work well on noise and heat. New technology is a huge help here, and there are a lot of options; pretty much all of them far superior to the tarpaper and jute of yesteryear. Next time I pull the carpets on mine, you can bet something up to date is going in!!

one of the rare areas that unless your doing a 100 point restoration your better served using the new technology, GeeTees right the stuff at lowes is pretty much the same as dynomat for less, also use it on the roof under the headliner for heat and sound.

Anyone use lizard skin as an alternative to padding? I have seen videos on YouTube but have not heard from anyone personally if they have or have not used and or liked it.
