Has anyone used Dynomat/misc sound deadening material?

Let me know your opinions of lining my entire '85 Mustang's floor with some form of sound deadening product. What would be the lightest material that'd still provide good sound deadening? I was told by a manager (I work in the Circuit City car audio dept) that I could expect to tack on a good 150-200lbs if I lined the whole floor (including hatch floor) with the traditional Dynomat. There has to be a better solution than adding THAT MUCH WEIGHT to the car to quite the interior noise isn't there? Anyone know of any lightweight foam/spray/other kind of heat applied dynomat/etc that would be a good subsitute?

Yeah, friend of mine has it in His 89 F-body. It sounds alot better. Its kind of hard to explain...you cant really hear the bass, but you can feel it...if that made any sense... and no rattle noises outside... it was a bitch to put in though, we spent 4 days doing it. It adds alot of weight as well, I was suprised of how heavy a box of it was.

if you want good dampening, dynamat extreme is a great choice, if you want light, don't waste your time or money on either.

I did all of the side panels, the entire rear hatch and both doors on my Talon. It was money well spent but if you are worried about the weight you probably shouldn't have any kind of a system anyways.

Dynamat Xtreme is their lightest, most effective product. You could do the entire car including doors and roof for less than 100 lbs of product. I have 100 lbs in my car but some of the older Dynamat products are heavier than their current offerings. Do it! You will love it!

I know this guy who lined his car with this stuff. It works awesome. I dunno how much dynamat weighs, but this seemed pretty light.
