I notice a quite loud road noise on my 96 Cobra. Is this common for this car? I guess it can be the tires, but I'm not convinced this is the main reason. It seems to be quite poor insulated.
I'm thinking of pulling the carpet out and installing Dynamat or Boom mat (also under rear seats and trunk).
Anyone have any experience doing this? Can I pull out the carpet and re-use it? Is the original carpet glued in place and is it fairly easy to remove it?
you can use the old carpet, I'm not sure if it's glued, I don't think it is...dynamat is not very expensive, here in the USA some car stereo shops will install it for a fee
It's much easier to work with carpet in a warm environment, summer day, it's more pliable
the carpet comes out not glued, but you have to make 1 cut , under the console there is a bracket that holds it in place , pull the rug then cut it under the bracket, when instaled you will never know it was cut. i clean the rugs with laundry soap with oxy bleach and a scrub brush then hose off and hang to dry. it is worth doing it , for that nice clean look and feel and smell. i do it to all the mustangs i buy to resell and my own (of corse)
