Thanks mate, yep was easy to cut. I got the stuff for free as my brother in law is a roofing contractor and my neighbour had some spare underlay.

I believe the roof flashing you can get from the likes of Wickes for about £25 for 10 metres

So in a bid to quiten down the road noise coming from the rear of the car I set about adding some sound deadening.

I had a roll of roofing flashing and some laminate underlay about 2-3mm thick to add to the trim when I put it all back.  So all the rear trim panels came off and I set about putting dowm the roofing felt, once that was done I lined the carpet trim with the foam underlay.  Finaly there was enough of the roofing flashing to also do some of the boot floor and under the bonnet.  I intend to get some more of the flashing so that I can cover the wheel well.

I also found a gapping gap between the outer skin and inner skin at the rear by the rear lights area so I stuffed this full of fibre insulation to help further. 

 

This morning I went on a drive and took some decibel readings and then again after I had finished with the same drive and I have noticed a significant reduction in road noise as well as a 9db lower readings so well chuffed.

Anyway here are some pics of my working progress.....
