road noise reduction

well given the frequency with which I do long journeys and the really intolerable road noise (with or without runflats) I needed to do something to make the car more bearable.

just took a couple of hours from start to finish and is phase 1 really, I need to do the doors and possibly add some MLV/CCF but it has already made a big difference.

I spent my Sunday doing a similar thing to mine using Dynamat - what product is that you're using?

It is called silent coat, I used it in my R33 - I think it is a great product.

Cheers. I ran out of Dynamat once I'd done my boot & rear seats/sides so will consider this as an alternative when ordering more for the doors

it is a real easy job, less than five minutes to get the rear seats out, a pull tab for the seat base and 1 14mm nut for the seat back and they are out.

This is a nice upgrade and really makes a difference to how refined the car feels inside. Definitely helps with the road noise and the rattles. Looks like you did a good job.

First changed the exhaust to make it louder
then dyno-lined the rear to make it quieter,
Put in a kicker sub, front end speaker setup with 2 x digital amps to make it louder
dyno lined the front to make it quieter
changed the down pipes to make it louder....

My wife thinks there's something wrong with me!

Lol, you just made my day, funniest statement I've read for a long time.
That's us owners all over. As you, did everything but the stereo.
Wife hates it, thankfully she does'nt drive.

Looks like a great idea, must admit on a journey today I noticed it is quite noisy inside so may give this go.

I'm a stockist of Skinz sound deadening products which include a 3mm thick sheet so you get one and a half times the benefit of silent coat and nearly twice that of dynamat extreme with the same labour time to fit

I've got a free delivery offer on here

The MLV will be great for really killing the road noise, next step for me after dong the doors I think.

All you have to tell her is

I need more of the "Good" noise and less of the "Bad" noise.

My Mrs understood that

+1 to that.

I used it and very sticky. Half the price of the branded stuff!!

Can't believe Nissan are so tight they can't be arsed to paint the inside of the car!!!

No wonder they rust.

Mine has given up trying to understand me. I just have to avoid keywords like "trust me"

To continue the sound deadening experience, I ordered a door sound deadening kit from R35Audio last week which I've fitted this evening.

Went out for a quick spin and the door deadening makes a bigger difference than the rear seat / boot deadening IMO. Really pleased with the results and thanks Andy for the great kit, would definitely recommend it to others
