Just pulled up the carpet to replace a rear floor pan and look what I found. Can't be good. Gonna have a beer and pull whatever those are up tomorrow......stay tuned. Someone did a serious cover up I'm thinking! They are glued down too.IMG_5738.jpg IMG_5739.jpg

Looks like some sound deadener (after market) I put some in my vert.

That's the aftermarket sound deadener kit, a rubber/asphalt mastic. Usually has a plastic liner top and bottom. Some heat might help it come up easier.

Restored 1973 Mach 1 351C auto converted to RHD (Australlia). Pretty much in stock condition.
Hello,
I removed all the bitumen based sound deadener and replaced it with Dynamat, which is a sound deadener and heat reflector. Easy enough to install but watch the aluminium edges. They are like razors.DSC03247.JPG
