Here is a sneak peek of my red square weave with Fortuny edging for the mats and red square weave with grey green leather for the floor carpeting.

Marilyn,
I used a product called "quiet car". It's a paint on sound deadner. A lot easier than applying Dynamat and less expensive. It does not absorb water either.

thanks....I heard "quiet car" wasn't nearly as quiet as a 3 layer approach. It sounds fantastic and easy to put in but I am worried my my ears will still be ringing. Do you find it to significantly reduce noise? Like can you have a normal level conversation?

I put 2 coats of Quiet Car in my 3.2 with all other sound deadening removed. Made a huge difference. With windows down you have to talk loudly, but by no means are you yelling. My car has headers, dual out sport muffler, Wevo engine and trans mounts, etc. I still get lots of drivetrain noise through the rear seat area but its night and day from when I was running w/o any sound deadening.

If weight savings is important, than I would recommend this over heavier damping products. If you are looking for ultimate sound control, then you would be better off with your 3 layer approach.

Just saw your post about the disintegrated heater tube. Before I deleted all my HVAC, I had great success with SCAT hose from Aircraft Spruce

Carpets look great, BTW

Finally got a quote for 3 layer product from cascade installed for 3000.00! Yikes - weight isn't important to me but if quiet car works that would save a bundle.

Okay so "QuietCoat" it is - Sounds like it is worth a try.!!I may try brushing it on as mine is no longer stripped out. Anyone use this over CLD tiles?

I believe QuietCoat is CLD, in terms of what it does.

Not by any means an accoustics guy, did stay at a Holiday Inn Express several weeks ago and have tinkered in car audio and office noise issues, so I have a tiny bit of experience.

I would think there are three things: one, blocking direct routes of noise, holes, cracks and gaps; two, damping things that vibrate and three absorbing noise. Maybe a fourth of blocking noise, although I think that might be under absorbing.

Our engines are very noisy, so I would think that you need to really make sure that all holes from the cabin to the rear are blocked and that you get as much padding as you can between the engine and the back seats.

You might also want to check window/door seals for noise infiltration- I would suggest taping up seams all around the car and going for a ride and see if it makes a difference, if so, start removing tape until you find the noise.

Since you're customizing the interior, how about trying to source some acoustical products that might look good and stop noise from bouncing around?

Good luck,
Rutager

Well if the quiet coat does the same as CLD tiles, that wont help me. I have no problem with sticking a bunch of CLD tiles on to reduce vibration. My bigger issue is true sound deadening i.e. what can be achieved with a decoupler (ccf) and mass (MLV). I like the cascade VB3 foam and lead combo for this purpose but at 20.00 per square foot (materials alone) it seems pricey. The other products are so non flexible that I know I wont have the patience to piece them together as I should. Maybe the best bet is CLD tiles for vibration then VB3 for compound curves and VB4 for the flat areas....
Here is my comparison flow sheet:



To do our entire car is around 72 sq feet
