In my opinion I believe it is when you consider price and results. Like others have said, I think this project is a great investment in both time in money. You get to inspect the floorboard and freshen up the interior to make the cruiser more comfortable. Whether you do lizard skin, MLV, noico, dynamat or any other brand, you will see a positive result. Just have to weight the pros and consI've read differing opinions in this thread. Is Noico worth it on top of Kilmat???
I wanted to do lizard skin but just didn't have the room or tools to do it. I've heard nothing but great things about lizard skin and is probably the best way to go if you have the tools to do so! Also good point on the door seals as this is one of the next things I would like to doI have been using a combination of Lizard Skin and Dynamat for a while now with very good results. I paint over the Lizard Skin before adding the Dynamat for much better adhesion. I'll be doing this process on my wife's truck and my own 62 as well. It is time consuming and certainly not cheap but the results are well worth it. Drive a stock 60 or 80 and then one that's had the treatment and you'll be a believer. All new door seals also makes quite a difference.
Has anyone put some kind of foam/sound material on the doors where you remove the protective plastic?
I saw somewhere online where a person replaced the vapor barrier with the sound foam. It’s pretty thin, not plastic thin though.I tried putting a dynamat type product there, but it was too thick, which caused issues getting the door card to stay on properly (clips would pop themselves out). I put the dynamat on the inside of the outer skin inside the door for sound deadening, and this time around probably just a cut up trashbag stuck on with butyl tape as a vapor barrier.
I kept the vapor barrier (well actually replaced the trashed stock material with new 6mm plastic) and added 1/8” thick Dynaliner to the back of the door cards. This coupled with Dynamat inside the door makes for an incredibly tight and quiet door.

You can see that I left it about 2” short of the door card edge so that the extra thickness doesn’t prevent the door clips from popping out.
I have some leftover Quietcrap I can send your way if you pay for shipping. PM me if interested.
