Taking Zeta apart - Part III

This time I'm concentrating to the sound proofing mats.

I'm taking the mat off because there is a lot of it and when sand-/glassblasting, it could be a problem (and drive the price up).


My modus operandi is that I heat the mat with a heat gun and then scrape the mat off with a metal scraper. Slow and tedious work, but my time is free compared to the blasters time. Another way would be freezing the mat, but unfortunately the weather is a bit warm for that and I'm not going to buy dry ice, if heat gun does the trick.



The residue that my method leaves behind should not be a problem, because the residue will come off when blasting.

After all is said and done I'm thinking that sound proofing mat should be installed and for example Dynamat could be a solution. This will need some thinking and researching as I would not like to add a lot of weight to the car... also not introduce another potential rust problem.
