As with my previous Minor when either door is closed (2 Door) it sounds like you're in a 55 gallon barrel. I have installed insulation on the floor and new carpet over that. I was wondering what material would be the best behind the door cards to help?

Duramat is the one of the most recognized products but if you do a search you can find others. Most of the speed/hotrod shops, Jegs, Summit Racing, etc., offer products as well. Search and you will find forums where you can read about user's experiences.

Edit: also ask automotive custom sound shops what they recomend.

hi,
I have just insulated my tourer with Resomat, very sticky, easy to cut with scissors and apply.
Took about 4 hours on my knees, not good, but the end result was worth it.
the cost was $170-00 AUD.

Local upholstery shop advised me not to waste my money on sound deadening on my Bugeye with the material the material that is glued to the interior door provides. Majority of sound comes from outside areas (tire, wind, exhaust, carb, etc. noise) when the windows are down along with the top and there is no way to prevent that. Same should apply to my Tourer. Sedans / saloons different story.

Pete,
That looks like time well spent getting the stuff glued so well..
Excellent job.

You may need to get a retread on your knee caps though ...

THe material that you used must be a Aussie product as I was not able to source it on Amazon or Ebay.
Is it a "local' product?

not sure about it being local, but think it has other names too.
I forgot to use my knee pads eye rolling smiley
and yes its very sticky indeed, saved having to paint the floor too, now looks amazing, even if it is never seen again
after the plush mink carpets are laid drinking smiley winking smiley

I had/have an old Datsun Fairlady which has some type of 1/4" harden tar sound deadening from the factory on the floor. To make repairs to the floor yo have to putty knife the stuff up.

A NASTY job which I had today 40 years ago- when I could kneel on a floor pan for hours. NOT THESE DAYS .Emoji

So I happened to stumble over a Smart Dude who figured out a Better and neat way...
DRY ICE !Emoji SWEET DEAL !!

He got a larger box of crushed DRY ICE and dumped it on the floor... He waited about an hour and then smacked the tar soundening with a "dead Blow" ruberized mallet.

The Frozen tar stuff broke up in to large chips that he to a hand trowel/dust pan and scoop them up to toss in the trash. The floor pan was spotless and not dented.

ABSOLUTELY BRILLIANT.

A nugget of knowledge worth remember for over such task.- At least for this guy.

You're doing a Great JOB!! PRESS ON !!
