The truck now feels much more solid driving down the road. The best way I can describe it is feeling like a new full size truck and not a ranger. It is much quieter inside as well. My mid-bass output is much much greater now and before the install my sub-woofer was much quieter if I had the windows up versus down. Now it is about the same with the windows up as it is down, a definite improvement.

Tim, I have completed the installation of the HushMat in about 4.5 hour’s total. I am sure I could knock an hour off that time on my next project. After you put a few pieces down and realize that it is easy to work with and very forgivable it moves much faster. This product did go on easily and I have not even taken the truck out for a ride and I can tell the improvement in quieting the door opening and closing.

The Willy’s is covered in HushMat and the photo part is almost over. Yes I did get the logo sheets and they are in place. The product is so easy to install! Lots of contours on the rear panel of the Willy’s but it was no problem at all. We did not use any gloves and we are cut free. I have to do the '55 yet but I am going to get to it the first of the week. The product really works GREAT. Thanks for your help. This chapter is an important one in the book.

A big thank you for your awesome product.

Tim, We installed the product in the Cube (everywhere except under the headliner) and conducted a before and after Real Time Analysis of the frequency response of the stereo system before and after. I haven’t been able to take the time to analyze the results yet but I did notice a nice increase in dB from the stock sound system when set at the same volume level. I think the average SPL increase +3dB which would normally require a doubling of amplifier power. On the road, the reduction in cabin noise was quite evident.

I’m the proud owner of a 67 Camaro that I recently had restored. Since the interior needed complete replacement, a friend recommended that I install Hushmat when everything was stripped out. I HushMatted the roof, floor, door panels and trunk. Tim and the Hushmat crew are awesome. The road noise that comes through is appreciably lower and the tunes are crystal clear and a night-and-day improvement. I humbly admit I had never heard of this kind of product, and absolutely consider it a not-optional part of my resto. Hushmat has my HIGHEST recommendation and I do not hesitate to recommend them to anybody who asks what I had done to my car.

My previous experience with installing similar materials has been the surface the material was to be applied to had to be exceptionally clean in order for the sound deadening material to adhere. Such is not the case with HushMat. The adhesives used by HushMat are far superior. I dusted off the surface and applied the HushMat Ultra. The sheets of Ultra are “peel and stick.” I like to peel back approximately half of the paper then line up the sheet where I plan to apply it and work the sheet into place from one end to the other, peeling back the paper as I go. HushMat Ultra can be cut with scissors or a utility knife. The sheets are fairly pliable so working them into depressions and curves pose no problem.
Road and engine noise is also noticeably quieter. Even my copilot, who does not ride along frequently, remarked how much quieter the ride is in Red Ryder now.

Prior to installing the HushMat products, I took a drive and measured the sound levels in the cab using a dB meter. I repeated the same drive after installing HushMat.

For those who do not know, the decibel (dB) is a logarithmic unit that indicates the ratio of a physical quantity (usually power or intensity) relative to a specified or implied reference level. A ratio in decibels is ten times the logarithm to base, 10 of the ratio of two power quantities.
A change in power ratio by a factor of 10 is a 10 dB change. A change in power ratio by a factor of two is approximately a 3dB change.
The results speak for themselves.
Parked, Idling: Before HushMat-82 dB; After HushMat-80 dB
40 mph, 1,650 rpm, 7 psi: Before HushMat-92 dB; After HushMat-89 dB
50 mph, 1450 rpm, 10 psi: Before HushMat-102 dB; After HushMat-95 dB
55 mph, 1500 rpm, 3 psi: Before HushMat-92 dB; After HushMat-88 dB

We have decided to build another SPL vehicle. A 1989 Honda Civic Hatchback is what we will use. We have many goals to achieve and records to set!!!
We need HushMat!!!

Chevrolet Malibu, I went with Hushmat after reading the comparisons. It was very easy to install, peel and stick-then press and roll out with a laminate roller. Cut nicely with tin snips and was installed in a Minnesota winter w/o a garage heater. Stuck and still sticks fine. Have only done front floor and firewall right now (with dash swap), will do rear floor maybe over the summer.

Chevrolet Chevelle; Your stuff is great, just used about 100 square feet on 66 Chevelle.
