Floor board clean-up

Hey guys, got an idea, and I would like your opinions. The factory tar pad or whatever its called was severely dried out and crumbling on the floors of my 94. I scraped it all up and thankfully everything underneath is in good shape. I'm cleaning it all up etc. etc. Anyway, instead of paying ridiculous prices for new sound deadening pads there, I was contemplating using pieces of EPDM torch-down roofing and possibly heating it up and sticking it to the floors in its place, any thoughts?

Why not use some bed liner? When I tore my flooring out in my 94 F150 and found $100. But I was thinking on doing a bed liner in it before I gave it to my brother.

Fat mat is a cheap alternative to overpriced insulation. Just hear it up lightly with a heat gun or hairdryer. It makes it soft and bendable without tearing and it's great for getting into the contours of the cab. Bed liner is good but then your interior stinks for a while until it's totally cured

Bedliner is a possibility, but not my first choice. I use the peel and seal stuff all the time installing doors and windows. Its good stuff, but considerably thinner than the EPDM rubber left over from one of my flat roof jobs. This stuff, if you've never been around it is just under a 1/4 inch and is very dense and durable.

Well, if you have free leftovers, I think you've found your answer.
