Sound Deadening Removal

 Pics taken after using dry ice to freeze and lift tar sheets from painted metal floor. Freezing tar can be a little more favorable and affordable than oxy/acetylene burning method. Both operations take 4 days straight to remove all tar remnants. Total weight of tar is 40lbs.
Looks clean, but 19years of grime doesn't come off that easy. Plus, that rusted steering/dash support has got to go. As well as the steering wheel, the e-brake, and the door innards.

  2. Wow, that sounds like it took a ton of work! I don't know if I'd be able to give it all that time/energy. Are you planning on putting some new sound deadening in, because going without that stuff is too much for me to bear!

  3. Sound deadening is not necessary on a racecar. The primary reason for removal was to save weight. Also it brings the bare metal surface out which is clean and easy to paint. There is no reason to re-install a dynamat or other type of sound absorbing matting because on the racetrack I will have a helmet on, with one objective in mind; win.

  5. Racing wheels are set to go for approximately 150 miles after which they need to be replaced with new ones. Most people make a mistake by using their them over and over again.https://www.gameroe.com/best-xbox-one-steering-wheel
