Just a little update on the ventures in my car, and one that some of you may want to have a go at yourselves!
I finally got around to applying some sound deadening material in the rear of the car, starting with the under floor compartment in the boot. I didn't want to add loads of mass to the car as there is plenty in already. Honda already put some bitumen like pads down in key places so I decided to place my material directly on theirs to make use of their worked theory! I must have only used 2 sheets of Silentcoat in this area in total.
I didn't want to go through removing all the trim in the rear to get to the sides of the boot so stopped there. Instead I got in behind the rear speakers to apply some well needed material there.
I didn't take any pictures unfortunately though I still used the material sparingly, 5 sheets in total (around 1 kg added).
One unexpected outcome of this brief application is the huge reduction in tyre roar coming from the back and a solid sounding ride over rough, potholed roads. I thought I'd gone deaf at first but it really was that drastic! I also noticed how much quieter my Milltek non-res was from inside the car at cold idle, win-win!
