Has anyone installed Sound Proofing?

I'd like to make it a little quieter while driving.

I was just wondering if anyone had installed any sound proofing to their Mustang and how involved the process would be.

Thanks.

Just use dynomatt like they use on high end sound system installs. Cancels out a lot of road noise and can be done "relatively" inexpensively.

I did dynamat in my old truck. Pulled all the interior out the dash seats and carpet. Installed the dynamat everywhere. It's good stuff expensive and adds a good amount of weight, which is the downside.

All I can here is my supercharger whining and my exhaust when I'm driving.

Yeah, it is dense/heavy stuff. Much of the stang's noise comes from the back, so if you focus on rear seats and trunk, you should be OK.

Oh I love it for what it costs it's definitely worth it compared to dynamat which is more than a hundred I believe compared to 15 bucks for a roll which is enough to cover the whole trunk..

It is for soundproofing, it definitely lessen any unwanted noise in the cabin specially in the rear end.. I miss the rumble my exhaust makes but I know it's there..

The package implies it's for some kind of waterproof repair?

Yes but if you Google the product it is also used for soundproofing as well.. I saw a dynamat in person and it is actually the same as this one..

Interesting...would be cool to see if someone did a head-to-head comparison to see if the more expensive stuff actually is better.

I can't find it now, but there is a massive thread of comparisons on one of the big audio forums. Peel & seal did pretty poorly. Plus if you live in a hot area your car tends to smell like asphalt.

Spring for butyl based products and stay away from the asphalt ones.

Good info!
Goes beyond just comparing sound insulation efficiency.

Been looking into this very project to do over the winter. There's a lot of forums and feedback on peel n seal. Even on lowes.com the reviews are by ppl that used it for soundproofing their cars. I've seen just as many or more reviews saying there's no smell (the smell isn't bad or is non existent unless you put your nose on it, even it is noticeable for a couple weeks then goes away) vs "it stinks" that I'm considering giving it a try. The cost vs dynomat is substantial. My only reservation is that it sounds like it would be a mess if you had to remove it. That's a good reason to start small and maybe only do the trunk! I think I just talked myself into doing the trunk with it! Thanks TedG!
