Road noise!!!!

I have my 13 GT and love it. And the car noise or road noise has not bothered me till lately. Went on a trip to Solvang Ca for 4 days with a lot of driving to different Vineyards with my wife and the roads are really bad around there. Not bumpy but asphalt that has lost the black top exposing the imbedded Gravel. So, the noise level was reaLLY BAD. We had a really tough time hearing each other talk. I'M GOIND TO ATTEMPT TO QUIET THE BEAST A BIT.
Doing a lot of research and I will start with the wheel wells then the trunk then the rest of te interior flooring.
Will use a product called Silent Running SR-Car. It is a spray on deadener (or brush on). Looked at tons of products and they are all too expensive to me.
Anyone else tried this yet?
Advise would be great.

How many miles do you have on your tires,I have P Zeros on my GT and the more tire wear, the louder my Mustang becomes,I have 14000 miles on my 2011,and I can notice the noise is getting much louder,add that to my Pypes A/B and it is LOUD inside the cabin,just a thought!!!!!!!!

Let's see, I did a '61 Galaxy, 2 '68 Mustang GT's, and a '73 Ranchero that way, and they were super quiet after I was done. Messy, but good stuff. And it was cheap.

I've used the spray on undercoating they sell at AZone and the like, and never been impressed with the performance.

Let us know which way you decide to go and the overall experience. We would love to hear/see how it comes out.

Best of luck!

Coating materials complicate body work should your car need collision repair. Consider the glue-on sheet materials to reduce noise and heat transfer.

How much did you end up spending and what were your results?

You could always rip out the carpet and dynamat it (sound deaden) like I did on my Toyota. Rubberized coating is what it is, but absorb more and is stick on rather than spray and is far thicker.

The Challenger without a doubt has SERIOUS sound deadning vs the Mustang, I mean with a 12" w\ 1000W RMS and a 10 inch w\ 500w the trunk\exterior barely flexes, and you hear no road noise. Mustang is a tad louder, but I like it that way, never had noisy tires and I like a loud exhaust.

You can't beat dynamat though, but rubberized coating is pretty much what it is, but if it's road noise I'd honestly pull out the floor carpet (take out the seats) and just put sound deadner there and it'll be as quiet as a Mercedes when cruising. Not hard to take out the seats\carpet of these cars, and after you apply that stuff, yeah, it'll be SUPER quiet. If you do the roof, whenever it rains you won't get that "tin-can" noise.
