Re: Undercoating experiences?

I agree on the epoxy paint. As for your undercoating, I would not recommend using the typical rubberized spray on products. They invariably dry out, lift from the painted surface, and crack, trapping moisture and promoting hidden rust, not to mention covering up fasteners and making them hard to remove later. Thick truck bed coatings also have the same issue.

I have seen dynamat-type products used on fenders and wheel houses. They seem to hold together better over time and can be removed in one piece. They need not cover the entire inner surface to be effective. Keep in mind that this would dampen the drumming of the panel, but would muffle sound of the engine itself only moderately.

Good find. It would be interesting to see how a sleeve valve engine would fare built using modern materials and machinery. I once drove a Minerva sleeve valve at a show and it burned oil terribly. As I understand it is difficult to achieve variable valve timing using the sleeve valve system.
