Check this one out. Wasn't sure which category to put this one in: flea market, technical, or Land Rovers That Suck on account of its painted bumpers! Whatever, $98K seems like a lot to expect. But hey, when you spend $3K on stainless nuts and bolts ...

The pictures of the build actually look pretty impressive but what caught my eye was the use of Grace Roof Detail Membrane as a liner all over the interior. I don't think it is closed cell foam, too thin. It is a product used for preventing leaks in house roofing, according to Home Depot (where you can buy it in rolls). So probably not much use for sound deadening? Anyone tried using it?

I was always curious what a white brush guard would look like (not bumper tho). I'm not convinced that a white brush guard and black bumper would look bad. but I haven't seen one yet and its not one of the thing i want to experiment with on my truck.

Just read the fine print of the spec sheet for the Grace stuff. It has a rubberised ashphalt layer that has a "slight odor" so they don't recommend it for use in interior spaces. I can only imagine what that truck will smell like if parked in the sun for a few hours! Wonder what they were thinking when they decided to use that instead of Dynamat or similar.

What a pile of shit. At least it was a 97.

Some people just need to stick with Civics and old Integras.

There is only one reason people try to use roofing materials as soundproofing: lack of money.

The correct application is thick urethane sound absorbing foam (2 inches works great)

Dynamat, and all those other things are way too thin to reduce noise. Not only that, but it is an absolute pain to remove when it comes time to repaint or restore your truck.

Roofing materials might work... I've never heard an engine or road noise from above my house... Logic works.

What other house building materials might improve a Defender? Shag carpet might be nice...

Lots of thoughts on this one. 1. All that work and money to create a UN peacekeeping vehicle. 2. I love the fact that someone would even try to get that kind of money for this rig, it makes me feel good about my own. 3. can you get that grill and other front end accessories for a 94 Defender? 4. my car has also been taken apart and put back together, just not all at once like this one. I do like the partial suede seats for sure. 5. somewhere out there in the US there is a movie star or professional athlete just dying to have this car fill out his 5 car garage.
