Interior restoration - underlayment?

ok- my first project was to remove the seats, console and carpeting to see what condition the floor was in. i have some rust, and an actual hole under the drivers feet. After looking into what it would cost to change colors from gold to black, i'm thinkin i may stay with the gold. i will still need to do the seat plastics and covers. What or how do i order the underlayment that was under the jute backing? its like an asphalt matt maybe an 1/8" thick with paper backing. the catalog i am looking through refers to "cardboard package tray" or "mesh package tray" - but neither of those sound like it describes what was in there. Is there another name for it - or is it just the practice to use one of the cardboard or mesh types, assuming that "package tray" means what you lay the carpet on. i can see having changed it - the other stuff had to add 30 pounds to the car.

nevermind - that was the Ames catalog - The PY Catalog has the "original tar based paper backed" underlayment - so that answers that question :p

They've come a long way in 40 years with "carpet underlayment". There are new products available for heat and noise abaitment from companies like Dynamat, and they can be applied to the floors and any other interior surface.

don't use the factory stuff, use either Dynamat, or they have a spray on, think it is "Snakeskin", or the stuff i used was from NPD (don't have GTO catalog yet but the Chevelle one has a lot of our parts) they just have it listed as "quality heat shield and sound deadener" i needed two rolls, stuff is tougher than it looks
and don't use the wifes good scissors to cut it.....lol, good luck and post some pics of your new toy, PS package tray is the shelf under the back window

Will do - i'm trying to keep a better "work in progress" record this time, so i'm taking alot more pictures.
i'm just trying to be cautious, i really dont want to do anything to ruin the car from a restoration perspective, so hoping you guys will be patient with my questions and offer advice from that point of view.
I'm pretty exited about this project and have been known to go off half cocked before and spoil things.

There are a ton of options out there that are better than the old asphalt mat. Dynamat, Hushmat, Frost King (from Lowes), etc. etc. Frost King is cheap at $20 per roll...will take 2+ rolls to do the whole floor pan. Check out Crustysack's '65 build on this forum..he did a heck of a job insulating his ride. Good luck.

Glad this topic came up. I just order a "carpet kit" from OPG, and it came with this tar paper factory stuff. When I opened the box I deceided I didnt want to use that. So if you deceide you want to use it I will sell this to you. Its still in the box. Otherwise Im gonna see if I can ship this stuff back.

I just picked up the 1/4' thick silver stuff. They were selling a 4X8 roll for $15, or 4X60 for $45! So, me and a guy split a roll and I got 4X30 for $22.50!
I saw a cool sound deadener at a dif show, a 1" piece dulled a cymbal. Guy said you tap on the surface, if it rings, stick a piece on it, cool stuff. But $39 for a 1'X1' sheet!

Burning rubber since 1982!!
My photobucket, lots of dif car pics.

how about rust arrester, or inhibitor or whatever. , say i was to get the motor out - could i use it on the frame rails without sanding them to bare metal - and then paint over it and expect it to last more than a week without falling apart?
