Default Soundproofing 2003-WRX Wagon

I am going to be "soundproofing" my 2003 WRX wagon. I have been checking out all the forums and trying to find out as much as I can about what materials to use and how to do it properly so if anyone has any advice or critiques on how I am doing this please let me know. I have ordered the following items off of Amazon:

Noico Black 80 mil sound deadener

Noico Green thermal sound insulator

Soundsulate Mass Loaded Vinyl


I have a few other things like rollers, adhesive spray, plastic wrap for outlining, etc. but will document how I do it as I begin. I think that the Noico green is overkill but I did want a closed cell foam to serve as a decoupler between the MLV and the Noico Black.

I don't have a sound system that is worth mentioning but I do like to travel in silence so I will document everything here and show my progress as I go through it. I plan on putting multiple layers around the trunk, wheel wells and headliner (maybe).

Again, any comments or helpful advice would be greatly appreciated.

I just got everything in today. The Noico stuff is fairly light but the MLV is super heavy. I'm going to weigh out the number of materials that I just when after I finish scrubbing down the inside.
