I used AD for teh inside since I had 24 sheets. but you can use Dynamat or it's cousins. Basically butyl is lighter and more effective than asphalt so stick to butyl.

Default Door Damping Done !

Atlast the material has arrived, I did my installation of Dynamat Xtreme on all doors + hatch. Already feeling the difference of cutting down outside noise, more musical interior, "thhuum" effect of closing the door (same as BM and Merc doors). Will be checking the difference for a week and then decide on the floors and boot for further work. I got a good deal from Vikram (15% discount on MRP), installation is not bad too.

Front door on process !


Back door 90% done !

Nice job on the dampening. How many sheets you used up? And what is the price? I am thinking of ordering these from US ebay and get it carried by a friend. If its cheaper out here will buy it in india itself.

I used 2 door kits of Dyanamat Xtreme. Each Kit contains 4 sheets. You can find more details here Door Kit I got it done at Carshringar opposite Globus (close to garuda mall). Hatch door was done with the remaining cuttings of the back doors, so 2 door kits served the purpose. It came to Rs.10500/- including installation of 300 bucks.

US ebay would be way cheaper than buying it in India.

Somebody was saying the heavier Wurth is a better bet for firewall damping to reduce engine noise. Can someone confirm this? Once I figure out the brand I'll buy the stuff here and ship it down.

Yes, its true, the heavier Weurth is very good, though expensive. Its actually industrial grade damping.

Thats way to expensive than whats available on US ebay. I am planning to order 9 bulk Dynamat extreme sheets for $117 ( Rs.4.7K) that would suffice for my entire car

Do you intend to get them shipped to India directly or someone's carrying them for you?

Hi Guys,
I got the rear hatch damped with dynamat xtreme. costed me 2300. Check out the pics....the sound has really improved and bass response is much much better. Rattling of the hatch door has stopped. Its worth the money I spent Thanks to shajufx for some advice he gave me






There was a bit of dynamat installed on the front doors too, but only around the speakers and behind the speakers on the door..but unfortunately I do not have any pics :(

bhai sahab, security se to pass ho jayega, problem would arise when he opens this in front of customs wala, which in turn, would call security.

I've witnessed this, I had a tough time explaining what exactly is this and whass the purpose. I'd to literally make him understand the logic on the internet and explain him that I was getting it cheaper and hence have brought it.

Arre, apne bhai sahab Kingfisher ke aage koi plane mein baithe hi nahin hai. Local passenger hain. Only security, no customs. Please excuse his ignorance.
