I ordered the Kilmat from Amazon. They have 2 thicknesses. 50 or 80 mil.
I got the 50, but had enough extra & some of another brand to double up a few places and put some in the doors.
A box (47 sheets) will do a standard cab 1 time.
@hoagster I also got the Killmat for sound deadening from amazon, but also got a closed cell foam layer to go over the top of that for added insulation. Both were ordered on amazon for a total of about $150 to have enough for the entire cab of my truck and probably most of my commuter car as well. I'll likely need another set of killmat for the other car, but the insulation roll is enough for 100sq. ft, which should be plenty for both cars.

I degressed and pressure washed my engine before I start tearing it down.

Smart man. You have no idea how many people I see tear into a snotty POS with all kinds of road grit and slime on it. It not only makes them gross to work on, it pretty much guarantees you're going to contaminate the job. Someone pre-cleaning is the exception when it should be the rule.

Thank you sir.
Yeah, that thing was such a little ball of grime, I was going to risk getting that on the inside. Makes it way easier to work on too.
Cleaned it more after that pic, used a scraper knife and some foamy degreaser. Down to the original paint again.
When I'm done, I'm gonna paint it a nice Chevy orange.
Started tearing it down a bit more before I had to leave.

More stuff that I'm hysterical about but is old hat to you guys. I haven't done drum brakes since the Fall of 1987 (no joke). Took me about 3+ hrs over 2 days but figured it out. They'll never look like this again. All new parking brake cables as well.

Finally got some low humidity to finish the body work and paint the bed. Can’t wait to see it back on the truck along with the chrome trim. It has been way too long.
