  1. lol ill travel across the country and deliver it to you
  2. lol 487 is some discount.... but i respect your determination
  3. have you even looked at the lights yet? This isn't a miracle going to fix all product but you can use it to reseal lights you take apart. From what you stated you dont really need to take apart the lights. Before one can recommend a product to fix the problem you have to find out what it is first. If the lights are holding enough water you have to drain them then at some point it looks like the seal is just fine. So how does the water get in the lights to begin with?
  4. Just sent you a PM second skin if you could take a look for me
  5. i used basically the same thing to seal my headlights. just remember you need to bake them after
  6. using it as a gasket to seal something would work well but ya if it needs to be removalbe then you may want to look else where. My whole thing was just with the product sticking to wood. Most people make boxes out of wood and most of those are MDF. If MDF is one or both of the surfaces that need to be sealed then this may not be the best solution for that specifically. Metal and plastic is really what you would focus using this on. I havent tried this with this particular butyl but you can remove butyl with heat. just how well and how possible it is to re use it is debatable
  7. I wouldnt use to seal boxes personally to be honest. I wish this product came out a little sooner because this is exactly what i needed to reseal my lights after doing a retrofit. I basiclly spent double the money for a inferior butyl product that im using now. a couple good uses off the top of my head: sealing tail or headlights after custom modifications resealing the stock guard on the door after installing speakers, crossovers & tweeters any plastic or metal installation of speakers and tweeters can be used in conjunction with Damplifier to seal larger gaps in sheet metal (example in my old car the front firing subs had alot of acoustic cancellation and needed an air tight seal between the cabin and trunk. In between the rear deck and the trunk there were several largeish holes in the sheet metal that when covered with only damplifier wasnt very stable as is much less with 150db of pressure once everything would be complete. Since this was before this product was out what i ended up doing was basiclly getting a sheet of damp pro peeling off the foil layer and putting the butly into a ball. then rolling ball into the desired rope shape to then be shoved in the corner of the trunk and covered with damp pro)
  8. damn that sucks. ya t-taps in general are pretty shitty and should be avoided whenever possible
  9. you do realize that we both said the same thing using different words.... link is cool though
  10. real sound deadener like second skin isnt made to add mass but it still does.
  11. damplifier is really only meant to be used on the sheet metal and the foam products are to be used from keeping 2 surfaces from touching or to "hold" a panel in place persay. You first need to find out the source of the noise you are trying to get rid of. If you have a system and it only rattles while thats on then turn on the system and go to the hatch area and see if you can find the rattling (might be hard in that situation but it is what it is) If it only does it while driving on a certain bad road then get someone to drive you down that road while you are in the hatch area with the music off preferably. You want to just hold your hand against whatever you think is rattling if it stops then you found the source if not try again. If you weren't able to locate the source with the panels on try with the plastic panels off, it could be the sheet metal. Just remember that nothing you do can really hurt (applying damplifier or foam products). There are certain situations that you cant do much to help but those are pretty uncommon. If you get to the point where you figured out there is a piece of plastic flexing causing the rattle and you cant really add foam to the issue then try the damp pro on the panel. Its not going to work like its made to but it will add some weight to the panel and hopefully lower the resonance freq of the panel.
  12. nice let us know when u get up and running. i still need to get amps for my new cobalt after the old one was stolen
