Sound Deadening DIY Sprinter Van

Lauren Maiman

Dares Drives takes on a van build in a series of YouTube videos that will make you want to say goodbye to your home and hello to #VanLife.  Watch the first video in the series, which addresses sound deadening a DIY Sprinter Van.  He chose LizardSkin Sound Control as his first step to reduce the vibrations from the thin, large metal panels and remove interior echoes.  Eliminating both will result in a quieter ride when out on the road in this DIY Sprinter Van.

About LizardSkin Sound Deadening for DIY Sprinter Van Conversions

LizardSkin Sound Control is a high-tech coating that stops the vibration of sound waves coming from a surface before they enter the air. LizardSkin Sound Control can be used with LizardSkin Ceramic Insulation; when used together, LizardSkin Sound Control must be applied first. Typical applications include firewalls, floor pans, transmission tunnels, doors, hoods, trunk lids, under headliners, inside fenders, panel van walls, and other areas that generate vibration and noise.

For maximum acoustic performance, coat the entire interior surface and the floor, inside and out. LizardSkin is completely water soluble, meaning it offers an easy cleanup with just soap and water. One gallon of LizardSkin Sound Control can cover 20-23 square feet at 0.040” (40 mils) thickness.

Sound Control is sold in a 1 gallon bucket or a 2 gallon bucket.
