i've got the front doors in my explorer all stripped down right now. is it really necessary to weld metal plates over the holes, or can i just do double layers of deadener or something? thing is, i'm not a welder and its kind of a pain to get plates welded over the holes, plus it would be permanent (what if my window falls off the track or something?)
how far down do i need to strip it? do i need to remove the window, track, motor assembly, or would i not really notice a difference from leaving a few really hard to get to places undeadened?
