That said, Congrats. Which car do you have? Alto/Swift?

To give a better perspective on the level of JVR that the Yoga-Mat damping can handle, the system running on my car is as below. For cars with more audio-power, I believe the professional damping should be a better bet.

A DIY (Damp It Yourself) story: DynaMat, FonoMat...Yoga-Mat ????-caraudiospecs.jpg

Yes, the system is a little unique. But, that's another DIY story for next weekend...

A very nice DIY. I did try something like this a while ago but it was not very successful on the plastic parts of my car.

This reminds me - I will need something like this for my VDi when i finally ICE it.

An alternative material is the AC ducting material - I can have access to it for cheap supplier level rates. Is it worth it? It quite reminds me of Dynamat in pics!

- @phamilyman , I remember that there are posts on Tbhp where the AC ducting material has been used by a member in his car. I think it is in the 'Alternative damping materials' thread. You can probably check with the member to verify its effectiveness.

- @white_vdi , the 'yogamat' should be available in the sports goods section of big supermarkets.

nice write up and pictorial, mate, i did the same on my car but alot excess volume wise, the car in the question was swift diesel, out of pure frustration on rattling i did this check this out in the link at the end of the post.

i used noise kill and a two layers of closed cell foam that stuck with fevitol-sr998 glue,

hence was not able to present a pictorial, my hands were way too gluey!! dint want to ruin the camera.

these pics are of the panels & doors before i put them back.

great DIY. i am using the illusion 6.5" compos fitted in the front door of my alto since 8-10 months. till date i dint feel the need for damping as the install somehow was so neat that there were no vibrations anywhere.
now suddenly mi left door panel is slightly making a cluttering noise. might be the rods inside which connect the locks and all. i am not able to make out exactly what it is.
i am thinking of damping the doors.
what all alternatives are there like the yoga-mat?

Very practial DIY stuff, well planned, well written, well pictorised and picture perfect execution. As long as it serves your purpose, its a real VFM work ! Another relief is when you think about selling your car. No worries on damping cost. I spent around 12k for dynamat xtreme, but can never get that now when I am searching for a good buyer !

Amazing work hotstuff, really very innovative.
Your work has come as an inspiration for many here.

I have been planning to do some DIY for the lights in my odometer, but I am totally confused as to where to start from.

Anyways, Keep up the spirit.
