I was removing the carpet from the interior and when i started to remove the stuff covering the inside of the wheel wells, i discovered a layer of what seems like wool and some fibergass . . . not sure . . . they must have used this for sound proofing i would imagine . . . anyone find an alternative, i was just going to use badding used for making quilts and maybe some of that stuff people use now for audio . . . something matt . . . cannot remember . . .

I put Dynaliner around the firewall and wheel wells in my car. Its great stuff with a adhesive backing and a nice thin foam top coat. Its great for insulating both sound and heat.

dynamat that is it . . . i will purchase a little for the wheel wells, i guess they needed it if it was there before, the car cabin is already a bit loud, but i love it that way, feels more like driving a race car . . .

What, the stuff they ripped off the back of some passing wolly mamoth !? :lol:

I was like WTF is this !! when I got hold of it.

Leave it off, I chucked all my sound insulation out, and the GT3 doens't have much - I can't really tell much of a difference.

The floor reverbs quite a bit - esp under your legs, and something on the back is good to have - it's much noisier without the carpet though I can tell you !

I used a company called 'Overkill' on mine which seems to work OK.

cool . . . i think i am going to use some synthetic polyfibers, very similar, but not quite as much, i dont mind the growl noises. . . . but combined with my new bigger wheels and tires . . . aaahh what the hell, i am the only one that drives this car anyway and i like the sounds . . . i likt he wooly mamouth comment . . .that is what it seems like, the damn stuff itches like heck too . . .

I remember reading somewhere that you can use cheap rubber floor matts for sound proofing, in some independant lab tests, it was a close very close second to dynamatt, and you can pick them up for like 99cents . . . they tested it in sound applications and pc noise reduction, the rubber absorbs the vibrations as well . . . might try it . . .

Go to HomeDepot and get their synthetic carpet underlay. It comes in 9' by 9' rolls and costs around $25-$30 per roll. It repels mildew and mold and the whole roll weighs about 1.5 lbs. I'm using it in my car and I don't hear anything through my floor or walls.


Modifying esprit's.. now that's fun..
