I was originally planning a bed liner or epoxy primer coat to deal with condensation and corrosion. Over that I was going to do a coat of the spheres
mixed into paint as a radiant barrier.
But later in that thread someone mentions HyTech Metal Shield
which seems to handle all those goals in a single step. While it's a little more expensive, it would save time, mixing and mess so that's the way I plan to go now.
Over that I'll do butyl mat for vibration and resonant noise, then closed cell foam as a decoupler, then mass loaded vinyl to block sound traveling through air. Then finally hydrophobic melamine foam for thermal insulation.
More info on all these steps over on SoundDeadenerShowdown
. Super informative site if you haven't checked it out. I've sourced all the products on Amazon and think I can do the job for about $500.
Overkill? Maybe. But I have a 7.3, which if you haven't driven one can be like riding inside a steel drum during a concert. My goal is to feel like I'm driving a cloud.
I also do a lot of winter camping in really cold temps and a lot of summer camping in really hot temps and I've found radiant cold and heat to be the biggest issues.
Finally I only want to do this job once; I don't want to have to pull the interior because I'm not happy with the results.
