Featured Build: 2006 Mustang GT Sound Deadening

Christian's 2006 Mustang gt

When you have all this horse power, sometimes you've got to tame down the noise level so the ladies can enjoy the ride too. Christian skinned this Mustang with a full layer of Damplifier throughout the trunk and transmission tunnel using about 40 sqft. He then used 20 sqft of Luxury Liner Pro on the trunk floor above the exhaust and 10 sqft above the transmission tunnel. This treatment method reduced the cabin noise levels about 8 dB and completely blocked out the exhaust drone Christian was experiencing. Damplifier Pro + Luxury Liner Pro in the trunk is the easiest way to cut down on exhaust and rear tire noise without treating the entire floor.

This awesome 2006 Mustang GT makes that Second Skin box look real good.

Ripping this bad boy out from top to bottom, before washing the metal with denatured alcohol.

2006 Mustang Trunk Sound Deadening

After skinning the Mustang trunk, Damplifier goes on nice and smooth.

That is one sexy looking ghosted logo...Christian did some great work on this 20 sqft box of Damplifier.

Don't forget to do the trunk lid, those things can be really loud. For regular daily drivers like this 25-40% coverage is good. If you have a trunk full of alligators (lol) dropping 140+dB with your BASS, you'll want to bump that coverage up to 80-100% depending on sound pressure levels.

After the trunk, we move up the to the floor and complete the transmission tunnel to stop heat transfer and structure borne noise.

Luxury Liner Pro Mass Loaded Vinyl blocks out tire noise and exhaust drone

Left rear of the trunk gets the barrier layer Luxury Liner Pro added to block out the tire noise and exhaust drone.

MLV Mass Loaded Vinyl Sound Proofing

Right rear trunk gets the MLV barrier layer.

When applying barrier and thermal layers make sure to make cuts around wires, bolt holes, etc as small as possible. Avoid creating large gaps in these types of layers for maximum effectiveness.

Make sure to butt pieces of Luxury Liner Pro together as close as possible to avoid sound and heat from making their way through.

It has been a fun project, but it is time to get this bad boy back together and hear the Second Skin difference!!!

Let the good times roll in the building of this 1965 Ford Cobra project by Cody and Kip at Tophat Automotive Syndicate. Based in Evansdale, Iowa, Tophat is the #1 Second Skin authorized dealer in Iowa.

The bare skin of this beauty is all washed up with denatured alcohol and ready for that Second Skin love. Time to add 36 sqft of American made Damplifier Pro.

WOW, what a difference the Second Skin makes! Solid panels, no resonance, and that ghosted black on black logo looks sexy on any build!!!

Take a look at the foot box. No more rattles, no more heat. Nice and sleek looking too. :)

After skinning her with Damplifier Pro, it's time to roll out into the sun and take a test drive. It's the best way to hear that Second Skin difference.

Ohhh, the sparkle!

That is one clean looking Cobra build. Thanks Tophat - keep being awesome!
