I don't remember this being covered in the thread, but what's the take on how to handle the door/lock lever rods? It seems like using thin sheet or aluminum to seal off the access holes in the door is tough due to various wires and such that run in and out of the them. If i used flex loom or similar to wrap around the rods, then matting over them cause vibrations between the rod and loom? Any advice would be great

I don't know if it's the best solution, but I covered the rods. Through that section, I stuck some mat back on itself so the rods only saw the aluminum side. Hasn't been a problem for 4.5 (!) years.

I did a write-up:
http://www.clubwrx.net/forums/showthread.php?t=13291

One added thought: Once you have a bare door, clean the painted metal with your favorite cleaner; alcohol, etc., to avoid any residual oils that would keep the mat from sticking later in life.

Ok I'm sick off not having anything to tweak on my car during the weekend . I want to put in an order for the mat stuff and am wondering how much I am going to need. I plan on doing the doors and trunk but nothing to carazy. How many square feet of the raymat and ensolite will I need to acheive this? Should I also get a bottle of the spray stuff as well?

1 roll of raammat, 3 yards of ensolite, and 1 can of spray should be more than enough. I just did all 4 doors and I still ahve tons of material left.

Hey guys, long time no post here, been insanely busy, business, cars(of course), etc.

I am running some really decent times in SM class autocrosses with my FXT, just installed a hitch to tow my race Miata so my kids and I can race both at events.

I am running track days at MMP with the FXT and will take the Miata out with me Sunday if I can get the trailer ready and run both cars, what a great place and way to have some fun

I have not finished deadening the FXT, I keep running into things to make it go faster and that it does quite well. But I will and then race it with my audio system onboard and playing if I can get away with it

We are going through a bit of a tough time upgrading our BXT, have to as the supply of a main ingredient is getting hard to get and the quality is not always as good as we need. I could of just fixed the issue but decided it was time for an upgrade since going to all the trouble anyway.

No worries on the prior BXT, we have never had a failure reported with it

Thanks for the kind words, have a great evening!
Rick

I wanna do this sound deadening soon. Gotta get some paintless dent repair done first. Anybody know how hard this stuff is to get off if i were to need to do body work afterwards? I'm guessing a little heat and a sticky mess would be the result....

I have read through this thread several times and i feel that i must bring a specific subject back up. I recently purchased an 06 STI. I am doing the trunk (with a dynamat kit due to my lack of knowledge of ricks existence until now lol). The trunk on the STI looks like a nightmare. I specifically need help with the lid. Am i supposed to cover the holes that access the wing bolts? Any STI trunk lid specific pictures would be great if someone has a few.

Oh and i emailed you rick, but figured you might be to busy to reply right now.

A sound deadener and ensolite are NOT the same thing...

ensolite is a closed cell foam... Similar to the Second Skin Overkill I have...

ensolite is not that expensive compared to other brands like secondskin.. i'd go with ensolite if you're on a budget

You don't need to do the whole car... stragic places = less monies..

It;s a shame you went with dyna-splat, you coulda got better with RAAM and you would have gotten a "forum" discount through Rick@RAAMaudio.. It'll do the job though..

Special thanks to EVERYONE that has contributed to this forum! I finally did the rear deck area of the car with sound deadening. It's the single best car modification I've ever done on any of the 6 cars I've owned!! Even if you have no sound system, this is a must!!
