Seats and sound deadening?

Hey guys! 2 part question coming at you. Im in the market for some aftermarket seats. Recommendations welcome, right now i have my eye on either the corbeau cr1s or lg1s. When i get the seat i choose i will most likely rip the carpet up as well and get a new black one. My question being, while everything is out, where exactly is the best place to apply sound deadening? I have cans of boom mat spray and also some of the mat material. Thanks !

CR1 and LG1 seem to be everyones go-to. I run the FX1 in my car, but those are more race oriented.

The boom mat spray is useless. The mats are good for all over the floor. I added some to the kick panels and the underside of the shifter bezel. Make sure you apply it around the transmission and driveline. That's where a lot of sound comes from. I didn't do the backseat well because there's a giant foam seat that blocks noise. But I did cover the foot wells. I still have a lot of wind and tire noise, and I can still hear my engine and exhaust, but this got rid of a lot of transmission noise and drone.

I used gt mat on amazon. 10 Sq ft roll did my trunk and I grabbed a 25 for the floors, and I still have some left. Probably gonna do the doors sometime next and add another 10sqft roll.

Dynamat Extreme

floor

doors

trunk

Now I can enjoy my GT500 axelbacks with zero road or tire noise.

The Bass on the door speakers is now awesome !

+1 for Dynamat. Also get rid of the sound pipe and if you're doing a full tear-down, put some on the firewall where you can and also around the inner fenders/wheel areas. Depending on your design, you can even sometimes put a layer of it under the headliner. The stuff works very well.

The Eastwood Company frequently has their house brand on sale. I have used and really like the Dynamat Extreme as well. Invest in a good set of metal shears and a roller to lay it down with. It is definitely worth the effort it takes to install.

Honeslty what looks really good is to recover the stock frames with TMI leather and the Bullitt/Mach/Cobra style foams. If you don't need a harness anyway...

I did everything with vinyl for $800 doing all the upholstery work myself. It would be like $1200 for the leather. I may go this route with the Steeda. I'm going to be swapping the blue/charcoal out for a 96/97 black interior anyway so seats are on my to do list.

The vinyl is actually really good quality but id do leather for this car. For a vert I would do leather tho.

Sounds like an appealing option, but considering the lg1s with rails are 958 after discount ill probably just go that route. Thanks for the tip tho!
