Anybody have any experience with Lizard Skin . Was on TV  pickup restoration project about a week ago Sunday  where they were restoring a Ford F250 cab for that noisy 6.9 or 7.3 diesel . They were hyping the sound deadening qualities of the product .  Maybe no benefit with my 4 cylinder  .

I have seen it applied to a street rod body but don't know how well it works. I wasn't too interested after I found out the price. I think it was$500 to do a '32 Ford roadster. (ten years ago)
I would have thought you would be deaf after all these years with that Detroit powered pick-up. LOL

Dan,

Only $160.00 for a two gallon pail ceramic based heat reflective stuff.   http://www.lizardskin.com/pages/ceramic.php  $150 for the straight sound damping stuff  http://www.lizardskin.com/pages/sound_control.php  you can get a 4 gallon "deal" that includes a spray gun  http://www.lizardskin.com/pages/spray_kit.php  John

Steve----After I posted the question,I googled it ..........A Summit Racing ad popped up $149.00 plus shipping for 2 gallons,enough to cover 46-50 square feet ,spray or brush on .. For floors,firewalls,doors hoods  .Summit was one of the sponsors of the program . That's why I'm curious to hear about a testimonial .

Yep,I 'm deaf in one ear and can't hear out of the other.........but a big part of the problem was having a side airbag going off last January[2010] for no reason .

".but a big part of the problem was having a side airbag going off last January[2010] for no reason ."

Are sure that wasn't the Good Lord just giving you a whack up along side the head? LOL

When I saw this stuff as a mentioned before, it had just become available and marketed to the street rod scene, so I'm sure that was a premium price.

Just some thoughts.
I've read and assume to be true that a lot of the Detroit noise is generated by the intake side of the engine. Has anyone ever tried muffling the intake. I don't know what air filter you are using but I've noticed several Detroit/pick-up conversions that use the conical K&N filter under the hood. I don't think those would quiet the intake much at all.
I worked on an industrial project one time where we were sucking on a vacuum table with a ducted fan, it wasn't loud when there was airflow, but when pulling a vacuum it just shrieked. (blades were in stall) we built a big "glass pack" around the fan by using a perforated  duct with acoustical foam wrapped around it. We also built a cap with acoustical foam over the end of the duct that forced the air to do a 180* bend. Shut the fan up so you could hardly tell when it started to pull a vacuum.

Steve-----We sold Donaldson and Farr air cleaners where I worked ,plus the company sent me to Donaldson training school as well . Donaldson did make inlet silencers in at least 2 sizes, both about as big as a football . I had one with 4" in and out connections on my 4-53N ,they also had one with 5.5" connections I'd apply on the 6V53s,especially in fire trucks  .I also had a 12" diameter air cleaner that ran just a couple of inches water vacuum,so you know it was oversize .With the turbo engine ,it's quieter than the N was ,but since my new/used Arizona cab is gutted in prep for paint and installation on my chassis ,now's the time to try some newer technology ..

Dan, I hope you get some good input here because I have thought about putting it on my WC cab but it is expensive to find out if it works well or not. How about you do some testing for the rest of us?

Fred

Ahhh, there's nothing like the smell of diesel fumes in the morning.
