Dynamat Advice...
 
Alright, so I have had the inside panel of my hatch off for a while now because the latch is broken and sometimes the only way to pop it is from the inside. Once I replace the latch I want to dynamat the hatch before I pop the panel back in...

Now on to my question....

How Important is this rubbery stuff that is stuck to the hatch already?

Can I remove that and replace it with dynamat? I have never used dynamat before and I don't know if I can substitute that piece with it, or I have to use them in conjunction with each other. I dont wanna remove that if its a vital part that keeps moisture or whatever out (which I think is why that is there)....

Do you know what exactly the purpose of all that shit is?? Its literally falling off all of the doors too.....you can see it creeping out underneath the panels lol

Im not 100% sure what it actually does, but I assume it's some cheap ass method of sound deadening and maybe a moisture barrier membrane? It sucks whatever it is, dynamat will do all that 10x better, lol :)

Yes, Fatmat.

That's what I used.

Make sure you get "mega mat" as it's 100% true Butyl which doesn't stink when it get's really hot in the summer.

I bought the 100 ft² kit. Comes with a roller, utility knife, and 2 rolls 18" x 33'
That is enough to cover everything in your jeep with a couple layers thick. I stripped almost the whole Jeep down to bare metal. Really easy to work with, But wear some work gloves as the aluminum backing can be very sharp.

I also had a propane heater going in the garage with the rolls close to it to make it nice and pliable.

rob there is material that hi fi user's use on their speaker cabinets if you dont mind spending $$$.... its the thinnest material around and weighs the least and does the best job at deadening sound. but its $$$
