interior rebuild
« on: February 25, 2014, 03:27:27 pm »
Good day guys. I need help. I stripped out my interior completely. Seats, carpets, insulation. Its all bare metal now. That I've sanded, removed all rust and put primer. I want to reinsulate and sound proof, after that I am placing a layer of fibreglass and going to stone chip it. For extreme 4x4 trips. What would be the best material to use for insulation/soundproofing. And where can I find it? Or if anybody has a different method to go about the interior rebuild.

I've used targa t mat before. Its a cheaper copy of dynamat. It works quite well and its waterproof, but its not cheap. Its around R200 a sheet

I got some insulation that uses heat to stick, not sure what it was called as I got it from a guy at VW. Then I just have my rubber mats over it.

What if I had o rubberise the interior completely. Would that insulate and soundproof it?

 I think the main thing here is your 'extreme 4x4 trips'. Which means it's going to get wet! I'd suggest you first make sure the existing metal is sound and properly painted etc. Then have a word with your friendly local carpet fitter, or shop, and get quantities of old carpet. Cut this to shape and put in place beneath rubber mats. I think you'll have to accept that whatever you put is going to have to be ditched on a fairly regular basis!
 Doubt you'll notice much difference in soundproofing either! ;D
 Regards,
