    Hey fellas

    I have a question regarding sound deadining the floor and boot floor of my Vn with the deadining mat stuff. Can you lay it over the existing stuff that’s there from factory or do you have to remove that before putting the mat down?

    Cheers

    Wonder how much weight can be saved removing it all.

    damn it’s quite a bit.

    Is the weight saving worth the added noise?

    All depends on the end use of the car Cav, Road car don’t think I’d bother, track car for sure.

    On the Dry Ice thing I couldn’t do it due to geography so tried a few things, Heat Gun and a Scraper worked really well.

    <p style=”text-align: left;”>This cars going on club reg and is family friendly also so weight is not really a factor. Only doing it as it’s stripped to a bare shell so thought why not.</p>

    Bit of a tip for this forum, when you copy paste here right click and select “paste as plain text” that way it won’t show the formatting..  :yes:
