In Topic: Sound Deadening Doors - Do I Need The Membrane Still?

There isn't much metal around the speakers so I don't think much would be gained.

I pretty much coated nearly all of the outer skin. It is tight to move in but it's more than possible.

 

Once I've done the rear doors I do plan on doing the rear wheel arches and undere the rear seat

Well its all done. Wish I'd taken some photos of the install now but I was concerned about getting it done in time due to the weather.

 

Good points.

Speaker quality is vastly improved. I've set the bass setting 2 higher and still no rattle.

Doors sounds much denser and thud when closed.

 

Bad points

I tried to fill in the gaps in the inner door panel. I did fill them initially and went to fit the door card but due to the door card requiring a recess for the pocket to fit into I had the remove the excess matting.

 

I did manage to get the water membrane off in one piece. To refit it after, I used the roller which I also used for rolling down the matting. It seemed to stick back ok. If it does leak then I'll get the hairdrier out and heat it up and repress it.

 

It is a bit difficult sticking the matting to the outer door skin and I have a few bits of skin missing from the backs of my hands.

I bought a 30 sheet pack and I've used about 18 sheets doing the front doors. The rear doors I will tackle on Sunday, weather permitting. On these though I will just do the outer skins as I don't think its added any real benefit to doing the innner skin.

 

All in all for £40 its made the stereo sound much better. It would have cost more than this for new speakers and the doors would still have rattled

 

I must also add the doors seemed to have been coated in a form of wax. I removed this with some standard thinners else the matting wouldn't have stuck

I've done a bit of research on Silent Coat and so far all seems good.

 

I really want to do it today and I'm hoping too. I just hope the outer door skin doesn't have any condensation as it's been pretty cold here over night.

 

Trying to salvage the water membrane will probably be the hardest task.

 

I'll post my feelings once done.

 

Thanks for the reply

Today when I drove it it was daylight. I'm starting to think it's just the privacy glass.

I will take a bit of getting used to tthough.

 

I might have to invest in a camera for reversing though
