Hello all, 72 Boler
American Restoration project
I've been reading post after post here trying to determine which method of finishing the interior walls will work for me. I am now at the "completely gutted" stage and want to do this right. I've been thinking about getting ensolite and go "original"...but I just don't like the whole taping the seams thing. Just seems to be a weak link to me. Then I thought about carpet...(more insulation, quieter)
but that too will require seams although less visible than ensolite or comparable material.
Now here's my latest and most likely solution. I read about Rhino Liner but it doesnt seem to offer too much in the way of insulation. Well, I went to Home Depot and found Floor Muffler. Its a polyolefin underlayment for floating floors. Dense closed cell vapor barrier material about 2 mm thick.
It appears to be gluable with 3M spray super 90.(man that stuff is pricey)
I want to glue the Floor Muffler to the shell, getting the seams as nice as possible, and then have the interior Rhino Linered over the foam. The Rhino Liner should do a good job covering the seams
It would be one monolithic interior shell....with some R-value(not sure how much yet)
What do the masses think? I know some are concerned with the weight
of the Rhino Liner, but I only camp local and it's not really a major concern to me. I'm not worried about trying to keep it original, I just want it to be as practical and maintenence free as possible.
I'm preparing a test panel that I will have sprayed in the next few days. Does anyone see any problem with this approach?
