Dry ice or other alternative for sound deadening removal

So I plan on lining my tub soon, and I plan on removing the sound deadening goop. I do not have access to any air tools, just a hammer and chisel. I stumbled on a couple youtube videos where dry ice was thrown down and then a hammer was just taken to the floor. Also found a couple vids where some frozen can stuff was sprayed onto the floor and made the goop easy to chip away. Does anyone have any experience with this method? Although there are a few videos about the topic, I would still rather ask any fellow members about first hand accounts on here. Would this dent the floor itself by pounding on it? Thanks!

just curious, what would be the main reason you are trying to remove this goop?

I am throwing monstaliner down on the tub and I am pretty sure that it should be removed. Or, am I mistaken?

hmmm, that's a good question. I'd have to see what is under my carpet because I am thinking about doing the herculiner...hopefully someone will chime in who knows more. I didn't think there was any type of stuff to remove under the carpet though, I figured you just had to sand it down a bit so the liner would stick.

Not relevant to the OP but be careful when you mix the herculiner. Reason I say is I put herculiner down on my Jeep and near the bottom it was very thick. I applied it all but it was very chunky and it absorbed any dirt and accumulated the dust and made hard to clean. Looking back I would have mixed or thinned it out so it is not as abrasive.

I should have mentioned...on my TJ. I would not do the same on my JKU. Way too nice. Although you could do it and then put the carpet back in.

good call. might have professionals do the rhino liner so I can just have peace of mind that it is going to get properly installed and it will be high quality.

Correct me if Im wrong, but I am pretty sure the goop gets removed before lining to avoid any rust from occurring underneath it

Air tools are definitely the way to go. I used an air chisel and needle gun and they worked great. Check with your buddies, maybe someone can help you out there. The metal is thin and it will dent easily. You should take that "goop" out. I have seen pictures where people did not and it does not look good to me.

I guess you are talking about the DIY liner stuff. I did a lot of research last fall and went with Line-X. I just could not convince myself that the DIY products would be a long term satifactory product.

The goop gets put on when the metal is bare and then gets pianted over. When the goop gets removed you will see bare metal.

I forgot to mention when I got mine ready for Line-X I even removed the putty along the seams and used bondo to smooth them out.. Mine turned out very nice. It's one of my favorite mods.







Pay no attantion to the dirty spots in that last picture. I let my little dog get in there to help me put everything back together and his feet were wet. But as expected, the spots wiped right out.

Yea, that looks amazing. I just don't have the garage or room to do something like this. I may just get someone else to do it...but I really want this!

Just wanted to follow up on my deadening removal. Dry ice made removing the goop ALOT easier than not using it. I don't have access to air tools, which would have been the fastest method, but with my hammer and chisel the back floor took me about an 45 mins after the dry ice was sitting on the floor for twenty minutes. I would highly recommend using it to remove the sound deadening if you are only able to use a hammer and chisel.
