I used the same method when I removed my undercoating, except I got dry ice in pellet form (little cylinders about 1" long and 1/2" diameter) so I didn't have to crush it up.
I got mine through a connection at a shipping company which specializes in temperature sensitive deliveries.

Have been using the dry ice for years. We get it at the grocery store, two 5 pound chunk does it, one one each side. We crush it in the bag (gloves etc) and then spread it out on the floor boards and the whole thing scrapes away in minutes. Getting the tunnel and sides is harder but a plastic bag shaped to the side of the tunnel does that job.
There is a short window for this to work. Have the car ready to go. Get the ice in the good cooler go straight to the car and get the job done fast or all that is left is a bunch of cold CO2. HTH, Richard.

Or if you live some where cold you can do this with just the hammer lol. I used an air chisel and freezing weather. Took maybe an hour or two to get most of it off.

I used an air chisel and dry ice after trying a few other things. Definitely worked way better than any of the other ways. I got it at the grocery store in blocks.

Get dry ice at your grocery store? I had to drive to a specialist gas supplier to get it and damn, I bet it was way more expensive than yours. It's the gun thing to use to remove interior tar sheet off the floor, comes off in sheets, amazing.
