Now that my engine compartment is spiffy clean, there's no more exhaust or oil leaks I'm going to tackle the interior. Not really that much to do, I put in Dynamat and new carpets but the front seats are in need of some attention...
Where can Dynamat be positioned other than under the carpeting? I have relatively new carpet and don't intend to pick it up. Where else, interior or trunk, can Dynamat be positioned?

Behind the back seat, on the doors under the door panels, firewall, trunk floor, underside of trunk. Pretty much any place you have rattles it helps, but under the carpet is the best, gets rid of road noise and helps with the heat from exhaust pipes

You may be in luck. You have a '58, therefore no firewall booster bracket BUT... We happen to have a member who has a spare. (no, it's not me) - Dave

59 Convertible

Just got this back from the top shop. Working on the interior (a 60 in a 59 car). Next spring I go under the car for a trans rebuild, disc brake conversion, and full front suspension. Hope to make the summer cruise nights....

Nice, I've done 2.25", when I was under it I noticed that the PO had obviously dragged the rear bumper and it's got a tear in the bottom right corner, and it's not perfect regardless, so I'm thinking I might make cutouts and run 3"s tip out the backs
