Headliner Coupe Effort

Well I took out my headliner. Easy over all. MESSY yes.

What do you all recommend to go in above the new headliner? Dynamat or some Lowes generic mat? What about something reflective to keep heat out?

Secondly do I need to remove this plastic glued on sheet all the way? If I scrape it I am afraid I’ll damage the thin sheet metal.

I need to do the same thing to mine, I’ll be using stuff from Lowe’s. It’s called Frost king and is adhesive on one side and foil on the other.

I wonder if all of this stuff still in my roof will come off. I suppose I’ll hit it with a soft bristle brush. Whatever doesn’t come off can stay.

Eh... what didn’t brush off nor wipe off with brake cleaner can stay. Then installed one roll of peel n seal. Covered whole top with one extra strip. Think I’ll go two layers as it still sounds a wee bit tinny.

PS- yep two layers on now. This should be nice and quiet. 8-)))

I added 50% coverage of Noico and 2 layers of EZ Cool insulation on my roof when I had the headliner removed. I noticed the AC did a much better job last summer. My takeaway is the roof is a giant heat sink and the insulation was helpful.

I also did the rear seat area while I was there. I had done the floor from the firewall to the trunk in EZ Cool a few years earlier. Anything you add to these for sound dampening and insulation is a plus.

Great info thank you.

It looks like that company is out of business but they recommended this one.

http://www.carinsulation.com/buycarinsulation.html

I’ll call them up. Great idea. I wondered what I was going to do in the corners where the fiber mat was. I like the idea of using behind the rear seat as well.

I purchased my EZ Cool through Amazon. The carinsulation.com product is the same item though.
https://www.amazon.com/Ez-cool-Insul...s%2C425&sr=8-3


Here's a great tech page on an EZ Cool install with before/after results;
citroen cx insulation

I had extra Noico left over, so I covered both of my doors and added a layer of EZ Cool to the back of the door panels. I wish I had documented some before and after results with my decible meter. It's not like i was trying to turn the car into a Lincoln, but I feel the insulation and dampening project was time well spent, especially if you have the interior removed. I'm glad you found the pics and info helpful.

Noico and EZ Cool on the doors...

Edit: Do your package tray too if you haven't!

Great work. I have some product coming and will do the trunk/rear seat area and package tray for sure. Also the areas under the inner rear panels. If I have enough I may add a layer above the headliner? Depends, that’d be two layers of peel n seal and one of this! If I like it I’ll buy more and do the doors and floor if I get a new carpet one day. Mines still good so there’s no rush.

I used some generic matting from Lowe’s. I live in Florida. It definitely helps keep the heat out of the car when the sun is beating down on the roof. I used to be able to feel a temperature difference with the old headliner. With the new one and matting it’s kept cooler.

Any issues with panel fit over this stuff? For those that have used the above product how much did you need? I’d like to cover everything I can....roof, doors, floors, side

I bought a 200 sq.ft. roll of EZ Cool and I have a bunch left over. The door panels were a tight fit, as I had previously added LMR's noise dampening foam to the door panel. Everything else was problem free.

Interesting.

My '93 is a daily driver. 2.3 Merkur engine. The clear is gone and it's a dark color (blue) so in the sun, it gets REAL hot, temp gauge inside one afternoon last year showed 179 and there was some cloud cover that day. So anything to help is worthwhile where I am at. Y'all who're below the Mason-Dixon line know exactly what I'm talking about! The A/C works fine but with that amount of heat that's already in the car after sitting 9 hours in the sun, the a/c really doesn't get comfortable until it's been driven about 10 minutes or so, which is basically about the time I get home from work. So by time its feeling ok, I'm home.

I've got to pull the headliner anyway and may address the roof and quarters while I'm doing the liner. Already did the trunk and added an access door for the fuel pump since for whatever reason pumps have been an issue with this turd.

I did an IR temp on the windshield of the 2004 V6 I had, and it was over 200 degrees F. The dash was about 190, and that car was in great shape, only problem was that it was worn out with close to 400,00 miles on it. Guy made me an offer on it and I couldn't refuse. A/C worked awesome in the car but the PO had done some work to the interior panels to make it quieter and insulate better since his wife drove it all over creation.

Well I picked up the headliner, visors and package tray. First two are IN.

Dome light was working.... then I pt in the visors and it’s not. New visors have no mirrors or lights. I wonder if the power wire to the mirror visor light(s) has shorted something out? Too tired to do any more figuring on it. Done for one night.

Yeah I pierced the single live wire when I screwed in the screws for the visors. Easy fix.

Installed package tray and working on some replacement insulation for under the inner plastic side panels now. I’ll post a pic tonight.

Thanks. I am going to use two layers of this material where possible. The OEM fiber blanket was so thick I don’t see why it won’t fit and it seems to be a far better material.

I wish I had added two layers when I did my EZ Cool install on the floor and trunk. The time consuming part is pulling the seats, carpet, and trim. Adding another layer wouldn't have added much more time to the job. Actually, the time consuming part is trimming new carpet to fit. Cleaning and reusing your existing carpet would speed things along.

Craig

I’ll remember that when I eventually do the carpet. I used an ACC carpet in my ‘86 GT vert years ago. Yes that is not an easy nor fast job.

I think the 85/86 had vinyl. LMR sells it by the roll.
