I have some of those! They are reserved for making my Accord top-heavy!

I used up the rest of the fanfold foamboards today. One panel between each set of studs before the shelves in back and then I cut up the last board to fill in the bottom, but ran out.

I will use the scraps to fill in gaps where the boards were a little too short.

I think that I need about fifteen more to insulate the area around the shelves in back.

Most of the times I see those being used in cars, it's often on the firewall of JDM surplus which is exported to countries such as Paraguay and converted from RHD to LHD, sealing the gaps where steering and pedal linkages were originally fitted. How do you plan to use them in your Accord?

Sound insulation in the roof, you know, once I finish fixing the dents and repaint.

Wouldn't it be more effective to apply it before you repaint the car? BTW I guess you might have already seen some cars which had resorted to such blankets as patches for dents and rust spots too.

Sound insulation goes on the interior. Did the roof on my Astro after the campervan conversion and it helped quite a bit.

OK. I usually see people using felt for sound-deadening instead of asphalt blankets anyway.
