[urq] Best way to remove insulation/sound deadening?

I've been helping rip the interior from a friend's urq
also for a cage.  We used liquid hydrogen to freeze
the carpeting and sticky stuff, then it just breaks
off and vacuums out.  It also works well to freeze the
spayed/painted on ceramic stuff inside and out of the
floorboards, then chip it off with a chisel.

You guys are making me think about ripping out my
interior too... ;)

Good luck,
