Re: Removing Old Engine Room Sound Insulation Adhesive...

a little late here, but has anybody used the SPM product available at Sailor's Solutions?

LED lighting, soundproof, Sailor's Solutions Inc.

Seems like it would be a little easier to install and is also price competitive (although still way pricey!)

I wanted to bump this thread, as Iím about to get started on this type of project, and would like to know how the Sailors Solutions product holds up and how it compares to the Soundown premium version.

Anyone have experience with both?

A friend of mine calls that stuff "H's F from H" Hitler's Foam From Hell. Hahah I think it is a pretty apt description.

Which stuff? Or are you speaking generally?

Re: Removing Old Engine Room Sound Insulation Adhesive...

Well, I've embarked on this project, and similar to @Suijin, the foam is disintegrating as it comes off. I'm planning to use Soundown's adhesive and pin fasteners, but I'd like to know from @Suijin and others whether you completely removed the old residue that is still well-attached, prior to using new adhesive, and whether that worked out well. (Not a fun job)

Re: Removing Old Engine Room Sound Insulation Adhesive...

I just did this. Nasty job. I scraped almost all of the old residue off with a chisel. I think I had that stuff embedded in my fingernails for a week. The remaining stickiness might create a better bond with the new adhesive. I can hope anyway. It's so much nicer now with this job finally done!

I did that job a couple of years ago. I just scrapped off the loose stuff. I mounted the pin fasteners with a very short screw and a blob of 5200. The screw was really just to hold the pin in place until the 5200 set. I then used Soundowns spray adhesive. When you push the washer onto the pin, it should just touch the Mylar, you donít want to compress the foam.
