Hi Dean,

The Dynamat stops the drum effect that sheet metal has. It works based on mass. The dynaliner is a foam that helps to attenuate noise.

Nice work Andrew. I’ve done two recarpets and can see quality here. FWIW I used Dynaliner in one car for a complete relining. It’s made for the task with a self adhesive layer which adheres strongly.
