Eastwood Thermo-Coustic Sound Deadener Material
Product Review (submitted on August 8, 2012):
I bought 4 boxes of this stuff on sale with free shipping about a year ago. I recently installed over a box of it under the top and on the firewall/cowl of my 67 GTO HT body when it was upside down on a rotisserie. The body is now on the frame and the material is melting/dripping/running/falling while the car is sitting in my shop, creating a sticky, gooey mess. We are having record high temperatures but the bare body in my shop isn't near as hot as the closed interior will get when in the sun or the firewall will get when the engine is running. It will be way too much work to remove the crap mechanically since adhesion is not the problem and some is under framework. No large pieces have fallen but a small piece under the cowl that did fall left behind a sticky layer of goo on the metal. What do I do now? I emailed Eastwood tech support and called/left a message but got no response. All I can think of is to try to seal the edges of the sheets with something like Flex Seal that will cure and hopefully keep the goo and aluminum film from dripping/floating off when the goo gets hot and liquefies. The picture is of a small scrap piece laying on a horizontal surface in my shop showing how the film just floats off. At this point I have spent almost $500 for a product that unsuitable for its intended use and the company won't even communicate with me about the issue. All I know is that I have a mess to clean up and won't be installing new carpet/headliner or instruments until something is done.
