Album: Tailgate Insulation

Silly project of the day:<br /> My store receives perishable foods wrapped in thermal bubble pack. I&#039;ve seen several videos on YouTube about sound deadening and insulation of vehicles to improve road noises and stereo performance, mostly using expensive Dynomat or cheap HVAC duct wrap. Well the price was right with this stuff, instead of throwing it away, the receiving guy put this to the side for me and here we are. Just did the tailgate area for now, next steps are floorboard, doors, the possibly headliner.

    Cool job! Haha, my first thought when looking at your final pic there was, 'Wow, he's hauling some really big bags of cocaine.. ' :). That's what it always looks like when they have the big drug busts down here near the border. But seriously, now that you've done the tailgate area... do you notice any difference in the sound levels? I'm planning a heater core replacement in the near future, and was thinking of taking out the carpeting and doing Dynomat-- shouldn't be too expensive?

    James, first of all my apologies not responding to you sooner, been busy with the job and haven't been on the site for awhile. Love the joke about the cocaine packaging!
    To answer your question; YES! There is quite a difference knocking down the noise level. It's not Lexus or Mercedes quiet but a very noticeable difference.
    Go on YouTube and search for the sound deadening videos and install techniques, they are very interesting.
