Wow, nice interior work there! We are working through our 1984 Tioga and I'll be taking your advice on the sound deadening material to cut down on road noise. Hadn't really thought about it before. I love this forum!

We were going to have them re covered, but it was going to cost more than new ones and we would still have the old frames and bases. So, we opted for new, we replaced both captains chairs, the dinnette and both low back swivel chairs.

We also carpeted the engine cover, but since it is fiberglass I had to use a foam sound deadening mat on the underside to reduce heat and noise in that area. That mat is also made by Dynamat it is a closed cell foam on one side and a open cell foam on the other. In the middle it is separated by a thin layer of lead. This is a heavy material, so I had to make some aluminum brackets to hold this in place on the underside of the engine cover. The new carpet looks great and the interior seems to be a bit more comfortable and definitely has less road/ engine noise. I was trying to dig up some photos that I took during the install, but I'm having trouble finding them.
That works too... Good job

My father-n-law restores old cars and was telling us about Lizard Skin, looks easy to use. What does it cost?

Its like $130-$170 depending for a 2 gallon pail, so can be cheaper compared to DynaMat.. you do need a cheap spray gun though. I personally like spraying the Lizard Skin Ceramic Insulation underneath the floor boards/dog house AND using some sound deading mat inside, but that get to cost a little bit..

edit: BTW, I LOVE what you did with yours inside.. Thanks for posting all the pics and links.

I purchased the Dynamat product a long time ago and purchased it on a direct purchase program. The stuff I used was left over from that project, so my investment cost was low. In hind sight I wish that I would have covered the generator box to reduce the noise from that before I put the floor down.

I wonder how well the Lizard Skin product works in deadening generator compartment noise?? Both inside and out? Anyone ever tried this?

They sure do look good can you tell us where they came from?

It all together makes it look like a new one.

You should be one proud owner, it shows for sure.


Sorry for the delay, I got some more pics for ya'll. She's pretty much original, besides for the flooring. The front seats have covers slipped over, but they're blue vinyl trim, with a beige face in the very middle.

I'm happy this one had more contemporary blue trim rather than the traditional 70s Orange/Brown, which still looks great even today. I'm surprised they went with blue in a truck that had an orange dash.

Enjoy
