Featured Build: 1970's Land Rover Defender
Meet "harry" the 1970's defender
Lou called us up and wanted to get his 1970's Land Rover Defender quiet and warm inside. We chatted a bit and found just the right materials to make his vision come true for his build named "Harry". Harry was focusing on the roof and walls of his Defender to both sound deaden and thermally insulate the areas. The roof and walls of "Harry" used 48 sqft of Damplifier Pro (28 sheets) and Mega Zorbe (12 sheets of the peel and stick version) to completely cover. The hood took 12 sqft of Damplifier Pro (8 sheets) and Heat Wave Pro (half of a sheet) to completely skin. Lou keep it simple with his enthusiasm of how well the products worked for him, "Good stuff Sturgeon! The sample you sent convinced to go with the insulation." We always love to make our customers happy.
"Harry" is one good looking Land Rover Defender...Playing in the snow is always fun!!!
Lou skinned the entire roof and walls with Damplifier Pro to kill vibrations and stop heat transfer.
After the vibration deadener is installed comes the sound absorption and thermal insulation layer, Mega Zorbe, super lightweight but packs a punch to combat sound and heat.
Very nice looking cuts. It is always best to start with a sharp blade and cut the sheets with the foam side down wax paper side up for easy cuts. Serrated scissors work well too.
Lou used 12 sqft of the Damplifier Pro and Heat Wave Pro to give the hood some nice noise reduction and thermal insulation. Everything you need to do a hood project is included in the Hood Kit.

Chris P has a sweet looking Defender that needed some sound deadening and thermal insulation on his roof and back wall. He ordered the 20 sqft Trunk pack for his areas and it covered perfectly. He used 5 sheets of Damplifier Pro on the roof and 7 sheets on the back wall. The load tinny noise and reverberation was gone after the install. Another happy Defender customer.
