    Plexiglass

    I was going to use Plexiglass to seal up the holes in my door panel in preparation for eventual deadening. I also have some steel plates, about 1/16" or 1/8" thick.

    I got the metal plates free, so I was going to use them. But I wasn't sure if plexiglass might be better for sonic purposes.

    Also, Home Depot has plexiglass in 1/10" and 1/4". The 1/4" is more than twice the price. Is the 1/10th good enough for sound deadening?

    I figure this is just to give the Raamat something solid to sit on, but it'll be a while before I put the mat down so I'm hoping just blocking up the holes and dropping in some egg crate foam will help some for the time being.

    Thanks.

    Wouldn't that spray foam be better to fill in the holes, then sand it to a level surface for your mats?

    I would be scared of the spray foam. If it expands into the path of the window or just somewhere else I wouldn't want it, it would be a pita

    Plexi cracks VERY easily. Just get some sheetmetal or aluminum to seal them up, then cover it with deadener...

    Plexi would be OK but it will flex a lot. I'd cut the metal to fit, glue it in place with a silicone based adhesive or similar and then deaden over it.
