Question cadtruck ... or anyone else with body experience

Drivers side floorboard is rusting through where it meets the rocker ... gonna replace it in spring... when I pull eve out of the cab to replace floorboard and any other surprises I find I was gonna rhino line the interior... no much snowy muddy wet carpet ... just hose it out ever once in a while

Can rhino liner type stuff be installed over sound deadening material? ... or would rhino liner be sound deadening itself

It would fail.

I would, however, put a spray in bed liner on the underside of the cab, once I had a cab that was 100% rust free, otherwise sealing in the rust, would cause it to rot out from within. At the same time they sprayed the under side of the cab, I would have them do the interior floor area as well, sandwiching the nice, clean metal in between, permanently preventing oxygen and moisture from getting in there.

On my Getrag 360, I used a universal CV boot and just cut off what wasn't needed. Works fine.

I think it was a Mustang boots as well, but I can't remember who did that.
Did you try searching the word Mustang?
I bet that word has not be used often on this forum and would guess the thread would come up pretty quickly.

Sometimes I have to think outside the box to get a key word that brings up the thread I need.
Glad you found it!
Not a lot of Mustang talk around here.
