As you can see by the neatness of the edge, the drivers was the second side i did, and had the knack by then :D

Very nice work. But just think of the next time you go wading in very deep water. :D
 
Daft question on the way..... if the seat boxes were internally lined with somthing similar would it have the same noise reducing effet? The reason I ask is that the inside of my old 90 gets pretty mucky and I just end up hosing the lot out which would mess up any carpet etc.
Looks good Toppa, wish I had some spare time:rolleyes:

I have soundproofing over the trans tunnel, it is a thick foam like stuff, water resistent, and there is the standard preformed vinyl over it, no problem hosing it out. Even befor i put the carpet over it, i hade used some foam (water resitent aswell) camp mats, and that made a massive difference to the noise aswell, it is still under the carpet, but as the carpet tiles had a backing on them it made an even bigger difference once on top of the camp mats...
I used the camp mats under the rubber matts on the floor and footwells aswell, then used it to line the roof, still working on the sides, plans is to line out the back with a thin thin ply wood after the camp mats, the carpet over that..

The camp mats were about a fiver each from halfrauds....

Cheers Toppa, held on with carpet spray glue?
Mike

Actually a glue that Snagger recomended,

Its called "Impact adhesive" strong as a very strong thing!!! in fact i glued myself to the can at one stage :rolleyes: not quite super glue,but getting there... not to expensive either, you can get it in a tin, that you spatular on , or in a aerosol which is the way i went fro ease..


Cheers
 
did this to mine a year or so ago with rubber backed carpet. the noise removal is amzing! you can kind of hold a conversation with your passenger...

the only problem I have found is that it soaks up the water when theres condensation inside. it's a bit of a problem but leaving the doors open with a dehumidifyer running in it for a day or 2 sorts it out after winters of major wetness!!
