Title: Soundproofing an Automobile
Post by: David Brown on March 08, 2006, 02:19:07 AM
Just bought a 2006 Corvette Coupe with rear cargo area (Hatchback). I want to soundproof the wheelwells to cut down on tire/road noise ; The inside of the wheelwells are finished off in plastic which appears can be taken apart -- what sort of sound deadening material can i put in there before closing up the plastic panels again ? AND, what can i use over the wheel wells in the actual cargo area for deadening the sound real good ?  Many thanks, Dave

David:

This product might be what you're looking for:

You can spray, brush or roll it on just like paint, in multiple coats if need be.

You could also attempt to glue mass-loaded vinyl to your  wheelwells, but cutting it to fit the compound curves would be tough.

Another option is to use closed cell foam mat (SSP Mat) to absorb and block sound.  At thicknesses equal to or greater than 1/2" the SSP Mat is rated at 25 STC.
