    I just used the rubber part, so only a slight improvement in noise reduction,
    But I didn't think the GU was to bad anyway.

    Interesting reads here. I know this is an old thread, but I'm about to start this process with my 99 GU. Except, the goal is thermal insulation instead of just sound dampening. I know there is some overlap between the 2 goals, but thermal insulation is of the utmost importance here in Siberia when dealing with the winter conditions. Will have to post up some progress pix as I get into it.

    So how did your job finish mate??
    I must say I'm still very happy with my end result.
    And now three the summer the car ac works much better.. you still get heat coming threw when the car is resting in full sun, and viscera with cold, but the temp changes much quicker and holds much better.. instead of having ac flat out once down to temp it's comfortable on nfan speed 2..

    Hey Westy, I can't get Dynamat over here but there is a company that can do a spray on rubber liner - same as what you would use in the back of a ute - do you think this would work for some sound deadening if used under the carpets?

    It may.. any material stuck to the body is "mass loading" the pannels, it's just how much mass is added.
    I noticed a small difference when I painted my rear 1/4 pannels with the paint on stuff..
    It didn't do as good a job as the dynamat but it did something..

    Its an oldie but a goodie is to stuff some
    acoustic batts inside the rear 1/4 panels.
    You'll be surprised the difference it makes.

    Westy, sorry I didn't see this until now. Yes the job is finished. I used a product over here called Shumoff - a dense 10mm self-adhesive insulation. Insulated the roof, pillars and sidewalls of the cabin. I didn't do the floor because the GU already had a thick pad and carpet. If it still gets cold, I'll go ahead and do the floor as well. I noticed a definite sound dampening and it so far has held the heat very well in -40C temps. So far I'm very pleased with the results.

    hey guys,

    i'll be adding some sound deadener/thermo proof on the weekend. just wanted to ask if you guys have suggestions on what to paint the floor pan with? really want something that will seal the floor pan but not smell on hot day's.

    cheers
