What does lizard skin look like?

Lizards have dry, scaly skin that does not grow with their bodies. The scales on lizards vary, depending on their habitat. Skinks have smooth scales so mud won't cling to them; some lizard species have bony plates, called osteoderms, under their scales for added protection against rough terrain.

Does undercoating reduce road noise?

Undercoating your vehicle reduces the noise emanating from either your engine or the road. This is mainly since it is applied to the exposed parts of the car like the underbody and the wheels well. The process prevents the contact between debris and as well as the metal-hence less irritating noise!

Start by removing dirt and dust with a soft brush or damp cotton cloth. While your ALVIES are still damp, use a soft rag to apply a light coat of quality leather conditioner (Bick 4 Exotic by Bickmore is a great product). It's important to use light coats so you do not clog any of the leather or cracks in your boot.

Does undercoating deaden sound?

Applying a sound deadening undercoating will reduce the vibrations as you drive, making a big dent in your car's structural noise. Vibrations, rattles, metal-on-metal sounds — they're all structural noise. The way to combat that noise on the underside of your vehicle is with a liquid deadener undercoating.
