Use good quality foam double sided tape. Unscrew the number plate, apply the tape and stick it and then put the screws on.

Thanks Shrivz. I guess I haven't found the right rubber sheet yet.

If you dont want to use double tape, soak the foam in ELFY and screw the # plate back. U'll never have a problem again, either with vibrations and/or # plate.

Of course when you change your number plate, the plate will come off with the paint on your car, lol.

i had the same problem in my accent. i drilled two more holes at the bottom of the license plate. bought some rubber thingys used in scooters rear foot peg. i used the rubber bush(?) in between the plate and the metal. the rubber thingy had a hole to pass a screw.

result - well the license plate vibration was reduced by 90%. seriously. then i damped the boot and now there is no vibration at all.

hope this helps

cheers

You get damping sheets (or mats if you will) and liquid (spray or inject or apply on with a brush) damping.
I want to damp my car. Which is a better option? sheets or liquid? Does damping my car wil spoil it

Don't use foam. It will absorb water and you'll have a rust problem. Use any material that is non-absorbent.

Liquid should be used for hard to reach areas (underbody, A-B-C Pillars etc...) but in genergal (doors, trunk, under carpet, etc...) sheets is easier to apply.

American Dynamics it is. Yeah, I had bought some from the same place: Hot Tracks (Residency Road, right after Bangalore Club on the left after the flyover ends).

Not sure if he has anyone who can apply it, since @shajufx wants the whole job done, I think, apart from sourcing the sheets.

DerAlte: Pasting is no rocket science naa yaar, he can go through a couple of Gunbir's threads/google and ask his local installer to do the installation. (unless he opts for liquid damping etc)

I have asked for quotes from few shops, not yet got a finalised pricing. American dynamics is supposed to be costlier than Dynamat, Wuerth and Rockford etc. Most of them are available in Bangalore. Carshringar promised to do all the work but not yet clear with the pricing part. Since every customer differ in chosing the size of area to be covered, there is no uniformity in pricing.

I found amazon.com is offering the best prices (US$ 70 - 115 for dynamat extreme) but sadly they dont ship to India. I am sure this pricing is far below a shop can quote here. Searching for any other means to get it by courier for a cheaper price. If the installation is a DIY thing, I dont mind trying it, atleast its better than doing sunfilm installation. US$ 115 is a price on amazon for 36 sq.ft.( 9 sheets of 18"X32" ) which is enough for a complete car installation.
