    Rubberized paint with sound deadening

    Based on my experience with my own car, it sounds as though the heat shield on your vehicle is rattling.

    Here's what you might consider doing to solve the problem: purchase some rubberized spray paint with sound-deadening properties from an auto parts store and carefully apply a liberal coating to the heat shield and the sides of the fuel tank. The rubberized coating will create a unique sound barrier that will absorb sound waves and virtually eliminate the rattle of the heat shield.

    I know this may sound like a radical idea, but I have an SLP Loudmouth exhaust on my Camaro, and, while I like the aggressive tone it produces, I don't have that same appreciation for the resonance it imparts inside of the interior of the vehicle, especially on the interstate.

    So, I carefully wrapped my exhaust in protective plastic to prevent any paint overspray from accidentally coating them, and I liberally sprayed two cans of rubberized paint on the exhaust pipes, the heat shield, the fuel tank, and the bottom of the car. And you know what? The rubberized coating actually absorbs a good deal of the vibration and reduces some of the exhaust din in my car's interior. It's sort of like filling an empty room with furniture and preventing soundwaves from bouncing off of smooth walls.

    I drive on the expressway at 70 miles-per-hour for about 1 hour each day, and the paint looks as though I just applied it; it has completely withstood the heat.

    Bottom line: If two $9.00 cans of rubberized paint can work to combat the sound produced by the SLP Loudmouth, chances are it'll work for you, too. (And plus, you won't have to worry about the bottom of your car rusting.)

    Just food for thought...

    not catylitic converter/tranny mount/hatch

    its a heat shield problem i think dont go buying all the stuff these guys are telling you to, next time its on a lift look under it for an exhaust pipe too close to a heat shield or something..
    yeah im pretty sure its not the hatch, its definitely coming from the heat shield....

    not sure the next time my car will be on a lift, but i have some ramps and things i could get down there and check.. thank you again

    ill have to try that rubber spray

    How i painted the underside of my car

    Thanks for the kind words, dude.

    Actually, painting the underside of my Camaro was a lot easier than I initially thought that it would be: I simply backed my car up on the yellow ramps I bought at Wal-Mart, and went to work.

    One note about the spray paint: I used the kind that can be sprayed from all angles, even upside down. This made the project even easier. Just take your time and be careful. Also remember that you're building up a sound barrier, so the more coats you apply, the thicker the "wall" and the better the sound barrier.
