On the last post, I brought the Coupe to Mike Harper’s Custom Interiors in Paso Robles, CA.
After deciding on the upholstery color (black leather), look and details, the first step was to install the Dynamat® sound deadening and insulation material.
I had heard a lot about Dynamat®, and after installing the first piece, right away you could tell the feel was solid, and tapping on the sheet metal was a dead sound – no more tinny, metallic echo like you find in all the early cars. And the insulation is very important to me because the Coupe is old style – no air. And no electrics/computers – just handles, a distributor and carbs.
The ’32 coupe is very small on the inside to begin with, and mine being chopped and channeled it really shrinks down in size. Because of this and all the little nooks and cavities, we found it much easier to work with smaller pieces rather than trying to install a large section.
