Winter is the time of year when most people park their hot rods and muscle cars, using the downtime to make upgrades and repairs. One of the best improvements you can make, especially if you’ve already removed the interior, is to add acoustic-barrier material from Heatshield Products to strategic areas of the interior to gain a quiet ride in the warmer months.
The quiet confines of new cars and trucks have left us pretty spoiled when it comes to noise intrusion, something that becomes readily apparent when going from a modern car to a classic car or truck. This “awareness” of noise is amplified if you’ve got a performance-oriented vehicle with aftermarket exhaust, or engine and suspension mods, which increase noise as well. Although a stiffer suspension typically increases handling prowess and ability, it also means more acoustic noise is being transmitted to the body and passenger compartment.
