Has anyone thought about putting acoustic underlay in their car for soundproofing? Currently I have some dynamat but it doesn't help at all for the interior sound. My car has a roll cage and 2 seats so I know the idea is cockeyed as its kind of the opposite of how the car is supposed to be. I plan on carpeting behind the front seats all the way back but thought a layer of something should go inbetween Does anyone have any recommendations for using some sort of felt on the floor and panels. Im getting old :boxedin:

Making a stripped out beast quieter? Hmm hehe, I had the carpet and bungs out the LS and didnt seem any noiser, its wind around the door seals and tyre noise thats seems to make a lot of whooshing, what about a pair of earmuffs!

I have the Skinz soundproofing in mine, it made a noticeable difference... but I still have an interior in! I reckon dynamat and if you get some sort of carpet over the whole lot? What about a firewall where the rear seats used to be? I noticed one hell of a difference when I stripped my car out for paint and drove it over, most of it was coming from the boot floor area!

Lol! Yea I chipped some of it off, for floor repairs but alot remains, just put rubber mats down with all the seats/interior back in, maybe the exhaust drowned the wind noise out!

If memory serves me right (and it often doesn’t) I used a thin but very dense sealed foam on top of my dynomat. That’s why I need a 240 bhp engine to lug all that extra weight about <_<

Or was that the Landrover.... :stunned:

There is a chap on the internoodle that does that expanding foam in big aerosols, think he may be based in Ireland, try Phill McCavity.com Finn.

I think i got talking to his mate Rick O'Shea. I think he must have been smoking something whacky as this guy was just bouncing off the bloody walls.

I assume you can still get the anti "drum" mats you stick inside the doors? Dodo Mat?
