    For a 1963 Plymouth valiant. What is everyone's preferred method? Just buy one through a vendor? Or is there a Home Depot material that everyone's using? Thank you. Eric

      heavy roofing paper works great but you have to double or triple it.

        I used a rubberized front door mat to cut mine out of. Worked very well and as you know, it doesn't show once installed.

          Just be sure whatever material doesnt hold water /moisture. Not alot will get there but you dont want to create a sponge between gas tank and trunk floor

            I've used roofing tar paper, would never use rubber because it absorbs moisture. The problem with roofing paper it comes in rolls, that unless you're a roofer would never use it all. If you see a local roofer buy enough off him to get the job done.

              You can use moisture barrier material that would go under siding on a house. I have some that is about a 1/16" thick
              and that is what my son used on his car and I consider it very similar to what the factory used.

                This is what I was kind of thinking. I know the original mat is around .090 thick, so that would work well. Eric
