    Deadening V Insulation etc.... - Newbie alert!

    Hi all, After reading a lot of threads on here, I was under the impression that at least some dodo and/or silent coat was standard, then dacron or similar insulation, then ply and carpet lining. On asking my converter (not placed official order yet) what they were going to use, I was given the...

    Sound deadening headlining?

    Hi all Would anybody be to give me any advice on if it’s worth sound deadening the front headliner in my camper (t6). I know that at the end of the day it’s a van with a pop top but if I can reduce some of the wind noise a bit that would be helpful. If so what would people advise me to use as...

    Dodo sound deadening

    Anyone used this stuff? Looks like it'll work out a little cheaper than some of the other options. 30 sheets enough?- its for a T6 LWB - I won't be doing floors or roof

    Bare-bones Transporter Kombi day van - how important is sound deadening, heat insulation etc?

    TL;DR : Questions to those who lined their van to minimise road noise - was it worth it? does it make a huge difference? Is noise and comfort really that terrible in an unlined van? --------- Longer version : Not long started down the road of looking into getting a camper. After a month or...

    Alarm-sounder stainless-steel box

    After sound deadening the scuttle area the alarm sounders stainless steel box doesn’t fit. I removed the box and the alarm sounder fits snugly.

    Insulation behind loc8 table panel

    How much space is there behind the space for the legs on the loc8 table panel? I presume there’s plenty of space for some silentcoat (at 2mm!), but will some 16mm dodomat fit too?

    Beige LWB T32 DSG seat question

    Hi everyone, I’ve just bought this van for transporting ebikes to customers and also weekend trips with my kids and our bikes. Possibly will convert to a kombi.

    Sound proofing the plastic doorcards

    I’m in the process of adding sound proofing to my kombi (as VW obviously don’t think it’s necessary) and my next challenge is the front doors. I’ve had a search or two but can’t see any obvious threads that would help me understand how to get the internal panels off the front doors. Could...

    Wheel-Arch Carpeting

    Hi guys, it's my first time carpeting the inside of a van. My local van conversion specialist advised that I shouldn't bother sound deadening my wheel arches and just carpet them instead, is this sound advice? Surely the clips and joints would be visable through the carpet if I dont. Please advise.

    Fitting Silent Coat To Converted Van- Nightmare?

    Not sure if any has taken this one on and looking for advice. We bought a newly converted SWB T6 last year and I think I want to take out the entire interior and retro fit silent coat and proper insulation. I took off the passenger side back panel and it looks like we just have wool type...

    Plylining Or Use Existing Panels? Which Is Best?

    I’m looking to get my T6 edition soundproofed insulates and carpeted, after a bit of advice please. Is this a diy job or one best left to the pros? what’s the best soundproofing? Is the silent coat extra thick worth going for? Is it worth ply lining replacing existing panels using the...

    Applying Sound Deadening And Insulation In This Great British Weather

    So I'm keen to order sound deadening and insulation to fit over the next few weekends but obviously conscious of it being bl***y freezing at the moment. I don't have anywhere to do this inside say a garage or unit so the question is, is it a good idea to try and apply while it's so cold? Will...

    Sound-deadening and Thermal Insulation of Cab

    I've watched nearly all the video's and read many posts, does anyone actually sound proof and thermal insulate the cabin area under the seats? I've seen one picture of sound insulation, nothing else? (I have the original matt that appears quite substantial) Picture for dramatic effect

    Sound Deadening Coverage

    Do I need to cover the whole interior of the van in sound deadening material? Specifically, does each and every panel need 100% coverage, or does 70-80% work just as well? Does the additional weight and installation time pay off is acoustic pleasure? This is my evenings pleasure for the week:D

    Outer Door Skin Sound Proofing

    Just wondering if anyone can recommend whether or not to put silent coat [or similar] on the outer door skin, behind the speaker hole. Or - should you put closed foam behind the speaker door hole? I have put silent coat on the inner door skin and closed foam on the inside of the door card. Thanks
