Looks like I am going to have to get an extra box to do the doors and floor pretty soon. I haven't driven it yet, but I expect to notice a difference.

I think you'll like it. Yeah, the job isn't too bad...not a knuckle buster at least. It really killed the drone on my mufflers. It made my stereo sound a little bit better too...maybe because I could hear it over the drone. When you do your doors, please post pics of the process, because I might do those if I ever get around to it.

Hi hoss-

Just got back from a short errand in the car. Not too much difference in the road noise, didn't get going that fast. Turned on a CD and I think the bass comes through more strongly from the rear speakers. My mufflers are GTA's so there never has been any drone, but I can still hear them enough.

I am stoked and I think I will tackle the doors tomorrow. There is a tutorial on the Dynamat website that details how to do the doors. You use the clear plastic moisture barrier as a template to cut the Dynamat to fit. It looks like simple disassembly and reassembly then.

Thanks for the inspiration!

Did the doors this morning. I used about 2 1/2 sheets to do both. It fits mostly on the outer door panel and access to that area is easy, once you have the trim panel off. Nine small screws and two "bolts" and the door panel comes off. Everything unsnaps and it isn't too bad, except for undoing the door open cable from the handle. It took about 3 hours to do both.

Drove it for about an hour after that and there is a noticeable difference in interior noise and the sound of the stereo. This is with the trunk and both doors "matted". I can't wait to do the floor in the cabin, maybe this next weekend. I have 6 1/2 sheets left, but I don't think that is quite enough to cover the floor. Maybe if I get a small package of it now, it will be enough.

I did my trunk and ended up with about 300 little aluminum-paper-cuts on my fingers..... but I am glad to hear I only added about 20lbs to the car - I though it would have been more

Great job Dan. May look into doing that on the wifes vert. Would like to do mine, but gotta keep weight off (its on a diet ) for the HPDE. I get a fair amount of drone too around 24-2500, but not at all like yours from your description. Will be changing out the exhaust system anyway in about a week to the Roush Extreme Performance Exhaust and testimony from RPP and owners say it eliminates almost all in car drone.

Your still running headers too right?

IF MY CAR WENT AS FAST AS THE MONEY I SPEND ON IT, I'D WIN EVERY RACE

I found out about the edges of the dynamat when doing my MGW shifter. I was a little more careful while doing this job and didn't have even one(I used a roller everywhere I could). I'm not too concerned about the added weight as I have no intention of racing it in any way. The quieter ride is the payoff.

I'll try to do at least the passenger side floor this coming weekend and figure out how much extra Dynamat I'll have to get, if any.

Yeah, AR long tubes...with MAC muffs...so my exhaust is pretty loud.
I like it loud, just loud without the stupid drone. The dynamat knocked the drone down a lot.

Yeah Frank, I'm with you...the quieter ride is the payoff...heck with the weight.
