Dynamat On Doors?

Recommended Posts

Been a project I have been meaning to get around to for along time, but I really want to add some dynamet to my doors. The question is, how do you apply it, is it even worth the trouble or should I have someone eles do it.

I don't want ot have to cut a bunch of piece to slip back behind things like the window motor. I have seen it just on the raw metal, almost like a flat sheet between the metal door frame and the actually trim piece, but my question with that is, wouldn't it be to thick for the trim to fit back on or click into place?

tips and tricks, as well as how much I might need for 4 doors, I seem to be finding just alot of mass sheets, nothing really designed for a door.

*I want to be the entire door, not just around the speakers*

Just remember that water is pouring through the doors, I would suggest a bitumen based sound deadener, works as rust preventer as well. I'm afraid water might be trapped behind the dynamat, but I might be wrong.

There is no need to completely cover the surfaces... pieces of Dynamat deaden vibrations as well....

So how is this generally done then? between the framework infront of the the window motor and the trim piece itself? if so, how thick is this stuff and indeed, how will you get it onto the clips

Go to my cardomain site to see what it looks like. I removed the moisture barrier, all friction clips, door lock mechanisms, etc. To do all 4 doors would require two door kits, available from Best Buy for @90/kit. The trick is to get a dynamat roller (not available at BBY anymore).

I wouldn't worry too much about rust, the compound is asphalt based from what I've been told, no moisture in it. I've installed the stuff for years with no complaints.

a roller you say? the kit I found online made it seem like it had a peel away back and jsut stuck it on.

Any idea how much install on 4 doors would cost? I don't mind about the back, but the front speakers are custom and require a few tricks to get out.

The roller is damn useful, you want that. It does have a paper backing and sticks, but you have to think about all the crevaces you need to get into, this shit isn't like celophane which stretches easily. I definitely wouldn't worry about water, since this is basically a sealer (actually used as a sealer in construction). As for thickness, 4-6mm give or take. I bought a 50 or 100' roll on ebay and with shipping it was about $90, this would be enough to do all 4 doors.

Have a sharp knife handy.

I always thought it was more of a flat sheet so to speak then something you tried work into every little dip and dot.

I know on my millenia there is a layer of plastic inbetween the trim piece and the metal parts of the door, held on by the single most disgusting black tar type stuff I have ever dealt with. I was really think I could just apply it across the top of that plastic, slap the trim panel back on and be done

You have to remove that plastic film, then apply the dynomat (brown bread, etc) to the metal of the door. Once done, put that film back.

I did this to my trunk and thinking my doors are next. But I had to cut the shape and lay it down and then heat it up & roll it. It is a good hour job for the trunk. Took 2 hours for me since I also layed down extreme as well. So doors I would think a total of like 3 hours roughly, in my opinion. And get the roller I didn't and ended up getting a heavy duty one at Home Depot for 5 bucks.

The fewer screams that escape from the trunk the better.

You could drag the corpse behind the car. This would have 2 benefits: you wouldn't get blood in your trunk, and the friction with the pavement would dispose of the body.
