By Desired FX: I could describe perfectly for you how to use this product and it still might not work. There are so many X-factors in getting a good pull from it that you end up experimenting heavily with the thing, which I guess is what avoiding big body shop bills and spending around $20 gets you.
I had a fairly large ding in my car and started by using the large pad on the middle of the dent. I put a liberal amount of glue on it and waited the prescribed five minutes before affixing the bridge and the knob. It pulled the dent out, but it wouldn’t release. I’d either used too much glue or let it set for too long.
I took the bridge off and peeled the pad loose with my fingers, then tried again with the same amount of glue but a shorter set time. This time, the pad came loose and pulled the dent, but left a large amount of glue behind.
Since the glue peeled off fairly easily, I proceeded to the other side of the dent, this time with the medium pad, the same amount of glue, and the shorter set time. This time, it pulled the dent but wouldn’t come off. I removed the bridge and as I tried to pull the pad loose with my hand, the pad itself snapped in half and left plastic embedded in the glue. This time, the glue WASN’T easy to peel off.
I finally determined that I must be using too much glue, so I used the small pad on the next part of the dent, but put just a very thin but thorough layer of glue on it, letting it set for four minutes. This time, the pad came off the car easily, but the dent was pulled only partially out.
At that point, I gave up for the day and resigned myself to finishing the job another time. Right now, it looks a good deal better, dent-wise, but I’m having trouble getting all the glue off. I’ll try applying some ice to it tomorrow to see if it will chip off more easily.
So, what I learned from all of this is that you pretty much have to keep the amount of glue very, very thin (it shouldn’t ooze out from around the pad when you apply it) but you need to coat the entire bottom of the pad with glue (it SHOULD push up slightly through the four holes). It may take you several tries to get a dent out, but that method should work on a simple ding with one or two applications.
There’s a real trial-and-error aspect to this product that could make it work differently tomorrow than it did today, depending on factors like temperature and humidity. I can see a body shop getting a whole lot of use out of something like this once they’ve got experience with it, but for the average car-owner, the frustration factor may outweigh the product’s usefulness. First-time (or one-time) users will need a fair bit of luck to get exactly what they’re looking for.

By Carl Kriesant: I’ve had the dynamat installed in my ’04 Subaru Impreza Outback Sport for about a month now and it was well worth the effort. When I say effort, I tore out my entire interior to install this stuff. Inner and outer door skins, entire floor (doubled up in places), trunk (doubled up again), rear hatch, and under my hood. It took a total of about 17 hours to install and trashed my hands, cuts and sore for several days. I used the dynamat heavy-duty roller for most of the installation and the handle of the roller to push the material into tight crevacises. My entire car, exluding the roof, took 2 3/4 bulk packs. I still have some left over and trying to figure out what to do with it…
The results: You could say I was skeptical like other users, mostly because I hadn’t known anyone who used it or what dynamat was even made of really. It’s basically sheets of tar (butyl rubber) backed with thick aluminum foil. This stuff is heavy, but pretty thin and tucks into tight places pretty easily. While at first I noticed an increase in my cars weight, it seems to be less noticable the more I drive. What’s more noticable is the quiet ride and solid-feeling the car now has. The doors really do close with a thud and not that reverberating tin-can sound like before. The entire chassis feels much more rigid and stiff, like a higher priced, luxury car. My roommate, who drives a Benz C-class, said the stiffness was immediately apparent and the road noises was significantly reduced. This girl loves to drive and she was pretty impressed with the results.
The amount of road noise from freeways was almost difficult to carry on conversations or listen to music clearly before. Much more quiet now. If you’ve ridden in a subaru impreza, you know how loud they are! While it’s not Lexus quiet, it’s much, MUCH better than a stock subaru. There’s still some noise, but I wasn’t able to cover the firewall as much as I would have liked and my tires are lousy. When new tires are needed, I’m going back to a quality set and that should help a lot more. (BTW, Bridgestone-made Fuzion HR’s suck a$$, but they are cheap.) I’m going with Bridgestone Turanza’s next time.
My intention was purely to block out road noise and make a more comfortable environment for myself and passangers. A bonus to killing the road noise was the improvement in my cars audio quality. I had previously installed an Alpine h.u., Alpine speakers and Audiobahn d-class amp w/ a 10″ sub and it really brought my system to life. I never knew what mid-bass was till after the dynamat was installed. I’m amazed to get that much thump, out of 6 1/2″ door speakers!! I had to go back into the headunit and re-adjust my equalizer because the entire soundstage totally changed. It really allows me to enjoy my music to it’s fullest without an amp for the door speakers, which is nice! My music consists, metal-core, metal and punk. The dynamat really brought out crisp, clean sound that wasn’t distorted at higher volumes like before. It’s also allowed me to tune in really precise and crisp bass hits from my single 10″, enough to make my rearview mirror droop with each hit. I love hearing and feeling the kick drums in heavy music.
All-in-all, I am extremely pleased with the results. At first I was tired and my hands and back ached from two straight days of installation, all the while thinking “what the hell am I doing!?”. But now, I can sit back on a drive, carry on conversations without raising our voices, listen to my music with better definition and clearity, or enjoy a nice peaceful interior alone. It’s been well worth the effort.
Would I do it all over again??
