    sealing doors with?

    What does everyone use to seal up the holes in the doors? Plexiglass, sheet metal, wood, just sound deadener?


    Im thinking aluminum flashing from home depot but should I sandwich the flashing between 2 layers of deadener to keep the flashing from rattling or vibrating on the door metal?

    Okay so I guess after everything is deadened then screw the aluminum flashing over the holes with self tapping screws then deaden over the flashing overlapping the door metal.

    use a decoupler between the metal and door.

    this will work.



    I am protesting Skar by giving them added exposure in my signature.

    Not seeing "decoupler" in link. I have AlphaDamp for deadening.

    that's how I did my Altima, also layed down a bead of silicone/caulk before screwing down the alum flashing. Worked well...

    I'm assuming he wants the metal to become a part of the door, so why try to decouple it?

    Home Depot sells perforated metal sheets that are perfect for that. Cut to size, bend em into place, secure with sheetmetal screws or RTV and cover with deadener.

    Re: sealing doors with?

    I would use Dynamat. Easy to work with, can cut with a pair of scissors and will provide good deadening to the doors.
