    How to deaden my doors?

    Hey, I'm going to be deadening my doors, but the problem is, with my Toyota, there isn't a big fancy panel to cover up all the crap, the "Door panel" in the truck is a single flat piece of cardboard, any Idea how I can deaden this without it looking like the panel is sitting on a piece of tin foil?

    Your door panel is a piece of cardboard and you're worried about making it look bad?

    Take the panel off, Deaden the inside of your door and the outside metal ( inside the door) get a piece of thin plywood cover on fiberglass resin and cover it to make you a new door panel buy everything from your local hardware store,wood and peal&seal I had great results doing that on my 88 model back many many years ago

    That's exactly like mine, but I've got the DLX package, so it's plastic on top of the metal around the window.

    That's pretty normal for older pickups. Some much older ones have no trim panels at all. You can apply vibration damper to the interior sheet metal surfaces. If you are going to add a barrier, you'll have t be creative. Photos of the door with the trim panel removed would help in that case.
