Reversing camera and soundproofing boot

Recommended Posts

Fitted the reversing camera kit and decided to soundproof boot with 4mm silent coat ( cheaper than Dynamat ) at the same time, it has taken about 5/6 hours in total but i have been very reaxed about the job doing it over 3-4 days and i am going to put silent coat sound absorber foam absorber35_close_grande.jpeg?v=1420714078 inside the plastics before i refit them to maximise the effect.

Silent coat bulk pack has 23 sheets and if you creatively use the off cuts it is just enough.

I've read quite a bit about this over the pond, it seems that soundproofing the doors has the biggest effect, be good to know the results of this :thumbs:

Looks a neat job. How does it adhere? And did it feel like when it went in, it was in FOREVER?

Once it is pressed in with a wallpaper roller, it's there forever !

Yes all plastics fit back ok tighter than before so should stop any annoying squeaks etc as a bonus.

As a vibration damper, only 25% coverage is necessary...

 

Still, can't knock a thorough job!

 

Not sure how much effect that foam will have either tbh, it only really absorbs high frequency noise (not that much of which is in most cars), and it's main job is to act as an insulation layer between the vibration damper and a mass loaded barrier.

 

Will be interested to hear the feedback though

We went for a drive for the first time tonight and both Gill and i agree the soundproofing has definitely helped queten the road noise etc. from the boot area, so all in all a worhtwhile job imho.

I did this last month with the same stuff, as the boot was already stopped when I bought the car. Road noise and exhaust vibration was terrible at 2000rpm , about 40% coverage made a massive difference. No boot vibration, I might apply some to the doors as suggested. Might post some pics tomorrow if anyone's interested.

Before and after, no more vibrations. Bought and refitted the standard interior after this. So much wasted space with the Bose sub and foam. I'll do Flyboys boot mod, with underlay and heat mould a carpet in place. A few other more important jobs to do first.

I've got a lot of underlay in my boot and it helped a bit but not a massive amount.

Now looking to add some mass loaded vinyl underneath the carpet in the boot.

 

I want to also deaden the doors but couldn't get to the outer door panel. Felt like i was gonna break three doe mechanism :s

Just bought myself 45 sheets of Silent Coat (for boot and doors), along with the rubber isolator (to go on top of the deadening sheets in the door) and memory foam sheets (to go inside tweeter housing and inner side of of plastic door trim).

 

Feel pretty confident with the doors, however never taken the boot apart before so that will be all new to me.

 

is there a guide somewhere for stripping the 350z boot apart?
