Question lil help please

Awhile ago somebody posted a link to an online source for adhesive backed cork that was made for motorcycle skid plates - said to keep the mud from accumulating (and deaden the sound). Anyone?

Meat,

Can't help you with the link, but I followed Creeper's lead (I think), and bought some closed cell foam (3/8" but I wanted a little thicker). It was like $2.00 for a linear foot, which is a lot of material for the $. I cut it into a few different strips to fit on the plate, and used 3M Spray Adhesive to mount it.

Can't say I notice a huge difference noise/vibration wise, but what the hell. Maybe I'll put some more on next time I pull the plate.

You can get the closed cell foam at fabric stores, at least around here.

You want the closed cell foam, because it won't absorb and hold water like a sponge the way regular foam will.

How about foam in the can?? Cover what you don't want foamed as you spray.

James, I thought about that idea, but I was worried that it might inadvertently prevent the engine from shedding heat. IMO, the LC4 (at least mine) runs a bit hot as it is.

I was actually thinking the opposite, that the closed cell would retain heat.
Screw it! I think I'll stick to a screwdriver and a water hose for cleaning.

so y'all don't remember the link? dang it! i couldn't find it in my bookmarks...

of course there are many pennytech ways, but the specific stuff wasn't expensive and i wanted to focus my time on other things.

Well, the closed cell stuff doesn't really come into that much contact with the bottom of the engine case, at least not with the pattern I attached. I would think foam on the other hand will enter every nook and cranny, and not let any air flow get to the bottom of the engine case.

And were off, on a loverly wet Saturday morn'!!!

If you want high end sound deadening, get a sheet of Dynamat... all the car sound installers have the stuff. I have no idea how it holds up to mud, water and schmutz.
If you want cheapass sound suppression, do the closed cell foam thing... I did 1/4" cause I have bunches laying around, pilot went one step better and did the 3/8"... hell I suppose you could get some 1/2" in there too.

Maybe "Scofflaw" has a suggestion... he knows more about foam than any three of us put together.

If you want to keep the big chunks-O-mud out... there are several vendors that sell open cell (bigass open cell) foam... it's about 1.5" - 2" thick and you just stuff it between the plate and the motor, any water that gets in drains right out... but it doesn't do shit for sound absorption.

Bedliner it, right Passy??

Surly, I have some of that Ensolite around the garage, it's light,closed celled and often used for making great molds for camera equipment and the likes.
It would probably work well for that application.

I think Creeper made a good suggestion though, if you want sound dampning then the Dynamat works pretty good. I never seen the stuff Surly linked us to though it looks good.
