Starting to insulate the cab (aka the 94 dB EZ Bake Oven), starting with Lizard Skin sound control; ceramic insulation next week for heat, then some Dynamat hood liner. The Lizard Skin is easy to apply, and easy to clean up (water based). So far, seems to really work based on just a "tap test" (rap on an uninsulated steel panel - great steel drum effect. Rap on the Lizard Skin - very muffled thud). I might also spray the back wall of the cab and the roof inside - those are both big sound and heat radiators. Have some Kilmat for doors and other interior, as well. After getting that all done, will do another road test with the sound level meter to see how it does.

The A1 and A1R originally have some sound insulation “paint” on the back wall inside . It’s different from the A0 Cabs that are just bare metal. If you press it with your nail you feel it’s somewhat soft.
