There’s a long list of benefits that come from jamming a big engine into a little car: the speed, the sound, the terrified wife, and so on. But a big drawback is unwanted heat and noise. To address this issue in our Project Thunderbolt Miata, I ordered up LizardSkin products from Summit Racing. LizardSkin is an environmentally friendly, spray-on coating that provides seamless thermal insulation and protection against unwanted noise. It also helps protect the steel from moisture and corrosion.
We used LizardSkin’s Sound Control and Ceramic Insulation products and applied them with the company’s SuperPro spray gun kit. After going through the whole process start to finish, I highly recommend this product. I know the results will make it time well spent.
