I'm not real familiar with the abs version, but I'm planning to do the whole roof (sheet metal) with a Dynamat type product when I take my headliner down to replace.

Prob wouldn't need anything too extreme for the roof. . .one of the cheaper/thinner materials should suffice. I got GT Mat off ebay. Found in 50, 80, and 110 Mil thicknesses. Got some of the 80 I put inside the tail gate, and rear doors.

Planning to order the 110 mil for the front doors, I'll prob do the 50 mil on the roof.

Yes, I added some insulation that I got at Lowes. I was some type plastic bubble insulation. My ABS Headliner had fabric installed. I see LMC carries them but I purchased on line but I do not remember from where. They are a pricy but I have had mine over 10 years now. No sagging whatsoever. It would be easy to replace the fabric if it was ever needed as there nothing that is going to fall apart.

Thanks. . .I'll definitely look at these when I'm ready to do the headliner. I didn't actually mean doing the sound mat instead of a headliner. Going to do both for extra heat/sound insulation.

Finally got the dash and all that out.
Motor is finally pulled looks good so far to be built.
Trans is out, not much left to do.
Teaching daughter a few things happy to have an extra set of hands to help.
So been working on getting the parts blazer all torn apart, have almost all done to scrap the cab then just have the suspension and few other items still on the frame before that's scrapped.
