Default What is under the door skin to seal the interior?

My SC2 was used and abused by some prior owner. They took off the plastic or whatever off the door and just left adhesive.


Does anybody have a picture of what it should look like under the skin? I am going to put some reflectix insulation there I think.

richpin06a has a video that shows exactly what I found underneath my outer door panel prior to covering it with reflextix.

Thank you! That's what I have that's disintegrated in my rear door, that everyone seemed to be confused about what I was talking about. I didn't know it covered the whole outside. I thought it was basically placed inside the door like what I've seen in a current vehicle.

I wouldn't think Reflectix would do much for sound, although it's water proof and easily purchased.

Guys were using this stuff in hot rods for awhile: https://www.low-e.com/ProductPage/Pr...E%20Insulation

Default Re: What is under the door skin to seal the interior?

About 10 years ago I took off the outer door skins and applied a Dynamat-like sound and heat insulation directly to the outer door panels. That helped to cut down a lot of road noise.

I did reattach the weather shield+bats with foil-backed adhesive tape. I've got the inside panels off currently to replace the 2 factory speakers in the front doors and the tape seems to be holding up well.

Let me know if you want pics of the door innards while I have the interior panels off.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
