    It is labeled "Peel and Seal" from Lowes. I covered the floor in my Bronco II with it and it made a huge difference in the amount of heat transferred through the floor. I would say it helped with the sound but I haven't installed carpet yet and the huge tires are loud anyways.

    It’s not too bad, the iPhone picture makes it look better than it is. There is a burn in the rear footwell.

    I have planned on going cobra brakes with my 5 lug, today the difficult to find parts arrived. I had been watching them on Ebay and they went on sale so I jumped. The rest of the parts are on the way.

    Next I need to order a new flywheel and clutch kit. Its the major hold up before the engine can be installed.

    Just a suggestion but I’ve run this RAM clutch set on my Coupe for years now and it’s been a great clutch. So good that when it wore out (45,000 miles of abuse) I bought another one. Feels like a stock clutch as far as pedal effort but holds a lot better (I destroyed a King Cobra clutch set in about 10K Miles).

    I am running a Centerforce billet flywheel only because it was on sale when I needed a new one. Biggest thing is make sure it is SFI approved. I would stick with brand names here and not eBay junk but it’s your feet and legs.

    I have read good things about Ram while researching.

    I am running a Centerforce II clutch and pressure plate and a Ford Racing billet flywheel with no problems.

    Centerforce is another great clutch manufacturer. Couple of other things, positive stop shifter (MGW's are the shit), adjustable clutch cable with a fire wall adjuster, and a clutch quadrant. I like the adjustable clutch cable so I can preliminarily set my clutch cable tension up under the car then use the firewall adjuster for final and then tuning over time.
