Featured Build: Porsche RSR Tribute Build

Steve's CUSTOM porsche RSR

With a custom creation from world famous West Coast Customs, comes the quality addition of Second Skin products to solve the sound and heat issues. This Porsche RSR has truly been one of the most ambitious projects we have taken on with West Coast Customs. Over the span of three years, they have completely restored it to mint specification while still giving it the classic west coast customs treatment. Every nut and bolt has been hand picked in order to keep this build authentic to its original Porsche heritage. They also want to give a huge shoutout to Dixxon Flannel Co. for helping us breathe new life into the car by creating a one of a kind interior from the very fabric they use to make their awesome clothing. We hope you enjoy the full build process, we have plenty of other awesome projects coming soon!

Dave's porsche 911 turbo build

When you have a turbo and exhaust upgrades, it takes mass loaded vinyl to solve the sound issues. Dave ordered the Mid Sized Car Build Package with 55 sq ft of Damplifier Pro and 45 sq ft of Luxury Liner Pro. Dave also got a sheet of Heat Wave Pro sheet for thermal insulation on the ceiling. After skinning the entire floor, doors, and ceiling with Damplifier Pro (about 60% coverage), Dave installed the Luxury Liner Pro on the floor and back wall at 100% coverage. To finish up, he put the Heat Wave Pro on the ceiling. It only took about 12 sqft to completely cover the Damplifier Pro and add a good amount of insulation above the headliner.

Straight from Dave: "Second Skin products are the best! They are easy to use, ship fast, and keep the car very quiet and cool! We have used other products in the past but now we use Second Skin exclusively! Ma halo Second Skin."

Porsche Carrera 911 Turbo Sound Deadening Package

Dave' installed Damplifier Pro in a checkerboard pattern on the floor of his Porsche 911 Turbo. This is the best strategy when using the 60% coverage method.

100% coverage with Luxury Liner Pro mass loaded vinyl on the back wall is key to blocking out the engine, turbo, and exhaust noise in a rear engine vehicle like the Porsche.

Porsche 911 Sound Blocking

After working his way down the back wall of the Carrera, Dave applied Luxury Liner Pro with as close to 100% coverage as he could on the floor.

The key to getting everything to fit back together like a glove is to take notes/pics as you go. Take your time and always cut around areas that may have thin clearance issues or mounting brackets.
