    sound deadening

    I am in the process of deadening my entire trunk with secondskin. I have never done this before and am kinda just working my way through it. Now, I am currently doing my trunk lid and am wondering exactly how I go about deadening the trunk lid the correct way. The way my trunk is set up (2002 Altima) is there are a couple big openings in the lid itself (about 4 inches in diameter). I am not sure how to go about the job because of these. Do I just put some deadener over the holes and simply cover them? Or should I just cut the deadener to a shape that fits the trunk lid by going around these holes? Again, I am new to this and any help would be appreciated

    Deadener only "really" work when it is directlr on the surface; do not just go over large holes. Try cutting a few small pieces and stick them down inside. Also you can use foam padding and stuff it into the cavity.

    Make sure you clean it really really well. I didnt clean mine and it all fell down.


    Great stuff though, IMO...

    Re: sound deadening

    so i should just insert small pieces of the sound deadener inside the holes instead of worrying about covering them up?

    Secondskin is better/cheaper than dynamat, and more versatile. You will also support one of the 'little guys' as opposed to a big corporation when buying from them, so what do you have to lose?

    Buy some cheap shop rags and put them in all the holes and then put the sound deadener over that, thats what im doing should work out well.
