Sound deadening

I have used house foam underfelt its quite nice easy to cut and doesn't really soak up water.

 

Changed back to thick traditional underfelt just sits better over all. Also easy to get from my suppliers and used on a bunch of other things. 

 

Either works just as fine.

 

 

What about those thick grey shifting blankets, would they be any good?

Pretty much underlay. They might have a bit more movement in them so not that stable/rigid.

 

If you were to ask me what I would actually recommend, i would say go buy some from an upholstery shop. I sell it for $50 a meter at 1.8 wide. You won't need 2 meters for a car or 1.6 for a ute, pay cash for a peace the guy has had under the bench and get it a bit cheaper.

PET & PP Quality Sound Deadener / Deadening (Self-adhesive) 80cm x 50cm $8

How would something like this compare do you reckon?

other than the perceived 'mass' of it vs KilMat

Or do I just recommend Kilmat?

I think its for his track dedicated Car (fast Street car)

thoughts?

Initial feedback is that it works. 
you still need to seal the doors with traditional rubber/tar and alloy mat but it helped the floor and hatch area a noticeable amount. 
stuffing the very rear across under the latch with 3layers killed a lot of drone.

Have just ordered some kilmat.  Any advice on some additional undercarpet insulator?  Pref not underfelt as it may get wet, options for a sticky backed foam?

I just came back inside after doing the back of my commer van. I opted for the usual underlay and shag carpet over sound matting. Reason being it is easy enough to drag out and dry if it gets wet.
