Default BEDLINER as SOUND DAMPENING

So, I've got this bright idea to do with 2 gallons of rustoleum bed liner my old man bought a few years ago and never used. (It's still good). I've been reading about sound dampening and all the benefits it has with making your aftermarket stereo sound so much better and clearer and less rattling, road noise etc. Anyways, we've used this product before on truck beds and it's not extremely hard or brittle even after years of use it still has a rubbery feel, so i figured this could be a serious break through for my sound dampening needs! I've got it laying around why not use it. So I'm in the process of disassembling my interior, just took the seats out, but I have 2 get a torx bit for the center seatbelt where it is bolted to the floor, any1 know the size? it's different than the seat torx bit size... But I'm going to put on a good thick four coats of bedliner under my carpet and on my doors, hopefully it'll come out being about 1/8" thick. Anyone think this is a good idea? I'm extremely good and meticulous when it comes to this kind of work. Let me know what you think!

not positive on the size, im thinking it was a T40. If not its really close to that.

I'm not sure how well using the bedliner will work.

It can't hurt though right? If anything I'll have an indestructible floor, inside of my door panels, and the front and back of the cab... I'm considering the roof, the stuff is good insulation, I've also read it elsewhere that it's a good insulator, any kind of insulation will help, and i know for a fact it will dampen vibrations from my subs... I've built custom fit sub boxes, then used rhino liner under the carpet, the before and after was incredible, much better sound and it ensures a solid seal for years to come.

Why not?


Sounds like a good idea to me, for every reason you mentioned. The only thing I would be worried about is the fact that you would be losing "x" number of threads on your seat and seat belt bolts. So either get longer bolts, or don't paint those areas.
