What is your primary concern, sound or heat?

I've seen people use spray-on bedliner on the inside of the hardtops. I suppose you could hit the inside and the outside for increased insulation.

Then why do you want to insulate it?

Any real insulation is gonna do both of them.

Dynamat is pretty cool stuff though.

Haha ok.

I know they sell self adhesive sound insulation. It's foil coated so maybe it does heat as well.

I have seen guys make headliners out of 2" thick foam from home depot. I'm pretty sure it's R-15. You can get like R-10 which is much thinner or R-30 which is thicker but R-15 is more common. It's the pink stuff that comes in sheets, not the real spongy type.

After cutting it and securing it, they used spray adhesive to put a layer of all-weather carpeting on top. You can get the carpeting from Walmart very inexpensively, and that way you won't have a pink interior.

that's really funny! Maybe they should have put some shag carpet on it. That must be the ugliest interior ever!
