Please provide more details, I'd like to do the same. I find sound insulation in up! actually to be much better than in some more expensive cars, but it's still not good enough to allow one to really enjoy music.

I'd also love to see the pictures! - my Up! isn't arriving until late march, but if there is one thing I've gotten used to its sound insulated cars!

This looks very interesting! So, presumably this is a special soundproofing material? It looks transparent? Could I ask what material it is, is it expensive and most importantly has it made much difference? I noticed I have some road/engine noise but can't quite work out which, as it seems the same at 40mphas it doesabove 70mph.

Rasmus: It's not very difficult, but it'll take some hours as you need to disassemble most of the interior-parts.The headliner is actually 10cm wider than the car's rear opening, so I think that from factory it has been mounted, before the front windscreen.When taking it out through the rear-opening it has to be "pressed" together, which can cause some ugly wrinkles in the ceiling-fabric, so you have to be very careful to prevent this.


I can guide you through it, sure. Can take some pictures and describe....

dynamat like sound damping mats increase weight and do not absorb much sound. The best compromise is to use less dynamat and more foam sheets ( open or closed cell, closed cell for the areas where there is risk for water or water vapour damage). With foam sheet there is no weight penalty. You can also use jute or cotton under mat padding, instead of foam. I have used all three in my Aygo with good effect. Don't forget the hood and the wheel arch.

I have just fitted a sound proofing kit to the boot of our up!This is not in the same league as the job done by Aze.but it does reduce the drumming & stone clatter produced on rural roads.These kits are all precut,self-adhesive & are very easy to fit without having to take the car apart,it was well worth fitting in my opinion.<div sab="833">Anyone interested contact www.noisekillergb.com./carproducts

Thanks for the link, I think I will make a visit. Last time I went there was just over 25 years ago when they were making handbrake locks. I went to ask them to be quiet I think! The pressing machines were upsetting the locals as far as I can remember.

Hi ducatikid,

Did you get there?

Thinking of doing a bit of DIY soundproofing myself, so interested in how you got on.

Cheers

SC

No, weather a bit dodgy. I'll report back next week, honest.

Sound proofing was something I used to like on the boot floor. If its never going to be seen I used to use a slightly heavier bitumen roofing sheet, not the stuff with grit in it but the thick roll.

I would recommend it 100% goes on with heat gun sticks great and proves a great thug when you tap it.

Try it, cheap as chips and you get buckets of it!
