    Sound treating doors (what fasteners work best?) and who has additional tips and tric

    So Iíve seen the videos with the guys using the threaded inserts, but like most people I donít have that tool laying around...

    What are some good alternatives to this method to fasten materials to your doors?

    Although itís probably not recommended, Iím going to use some treated and sealed MDF, so Iím particularly interested in the best ways to fasten that material to my door...

    Any additional tips, tricks and tactics to sound deadening would be greatly appreciated... I see no reason to not sit back and patiently sound treating the **** out of your vehicle if the materials arenít over priced.

    I'd be a bit scared of MDF just due to the fact of it holding water if you are talking about a big spot to cover holes in the door. There I'd go with plexiglass as far as mounting that's a damned good question

    people use mdf for that all the time. Birch would probably be better for the water issue tho

    Ya mdf is a sponge for water and plywood may be a better option and coating with fiberglass resin. As far as fasteners I use nutsert rivits cheap and very effective this is what I have

    I just used some short self tapping screws, aluminum flashing and a good bit of deadener. so far so good. could use more deadener but that's a task for another day

    I used 3/8 ABS with 5/16" -1/2" self tapping screws and sealed around that with silicone, and used two layers of 80 mill deadner rolled on with a heat gun to make sure she stays STUCK to the door, after cleaning with alcohol and placed as much on the inside panel as well. Mark and pre-drill with a countersink bit works well also.

    Thanks for the replies... I donít have the ďlikeĒ or ďthank youĒ button on the app I use, but I really appreciate all the replies to questions I ask... I know many of them are ďelementaryĒ, but itís fun to be over detailed and meticulous about this stuff... itís fun to talk about and do.
