interiors, and sound deadening mats...


the interior noise and sounds within the car's cabin is always at issue...
below is what i did in an attempt to deaden some of the engine and road noises...

some insightful comments on the forums....''back when Dynamutt first came out, our trim shop suppliers started selling it. One of the first marketing tools they had consisted of two one quart paint can lids, one with a postage stamp sized piece of dynamutt and one without. They had them set up like a gong, with a clapper and you could test the difference in the sound.  I hate to be that guy, but you don't need to cover the whole panel. Just a little on each will do fine to dampen any sympathetic resonance.''

 
 
 this is how far into the engine bay that i place the matting...the idea was to protect the body from the heat given off by the header...

the following photos are of an 2002 and i am posting them here as an example of what i plan to do after painting my car...

  1. It is nice that you added a sound deadening thing to it. I decided that the outside noise can really be troublesome! More so than I had previously thought, so props to that. nice job!

  2. thanks Jerry but this isn't my car its only a template for myself to keep me on task...last week i had a chance to dismantle the flooring in e39 and i was amazed at how thick the multiple layers of foam, and insulation was in the flooring...its no wonder these cars are so quiet...i have insulated my engine bay, and the drive shaft tunnel, and the insides of the doors...i haven't added the padding to the interior floors, rear seating areas yet because i am still preparing for paint...but thanks for the encouragement either way...
