<VV> Insulation or Jute Padding

How about a heat gun to soften the goop.  A suggestion for even more quiet.
Get some Peel 'n Stick from Home Depot or whoever sells roofing supplies.
It's a multi layer material with adhesive backed mastic with an aluminum
foil upper surface.  It comes in a roll about 6-7" wide and is CHEEP.  Stuck
to your floors, door interiors etc, it takes the drumming out of the sheet
metal.  Lay your Dynamat on top of this.  You won't believe how quiet your
car will become.  I have a '66 Turbovert and the only mechanical noise comes
in through the soft top.  It's quieter than my Cadillac.

I am almost done with the rebuild of my 62 Monza. I am now starting in 
the interior floor. I have removed the seats and the carpet (new carpet 
from ACC has been delivered). I want to put down dynamat under the 
carpeting. What is the best way to remove the old glued on fiber 
padding. I have scrapped a lot of it off with a scrapper, but need to 
get the old glue and fibers out so that the dynamat has a good chance of 
sticking. What is the best way to do this?
Could I get some 3M adhesive release, spray it good and the scrape, or 
use a wire brush or even a wire wheel (attached to my drill), or????
