Motor is in with fresh paint, a new dual-plane intake, Holley carb, long-tube headers, beefier torsion bars and Monroe shocks, tighter-ratio power steering pump, stronger upper control arms, and of course the 5-speed TREMEC transmission and awesome pistol-grip Hurst shifter. Should be back home in a few weeks after dual exhaust, tune, and dyno. So exciting!

I had some extra Dynamat left over and decided to partially cover the trunk lid. I hope this will make the car quieter for when I get to the point of installing a sound system and subwoofers.

First, I used painter’s tape to make a template.

Then I carefully cut out the shape I want with an exacto knife. In later shapes, I decided it was easier to instead mark where I wanted to cut with a sharpie and cut the shape later. That way I don’t risk cutting into the paint.

Use the template to cut out your Dynamat. Then flip the shape over to get its mirror image for the other side of the trunk:



I’m pretty pleased with the final result. Not perfect, but good enough for me.
