I used 3M upholstery spray adhesive. Works good, lasts a long time.

Do you worry about it separating the acoustic foam from the rubber if you ever have/want to take it up?

It's not permanent, it just keeps the mat in place. You may have to reapply it every so often.

Hi Guys,
Are you happy with the exmoor insulated load mat? Did you notice a difference? I was planning on getting one.

Thanks

I have an automatic 97 d90. I don't think they make a molded mat for the front and seat boxes for an auto. Have you guys heard of any other brands who do an insulated matting system which would work?

thanks!

Bill Larson used an R380 kit I believe and did a few mods to make it fit. He has a thread on it, Im about to do this myself on my 97. Im sure he'll chime in.

Hi Smac,
thanks. I'm going to buy the R380 full system with seat boxes and try it. I'm going to dynamat the whole thing before I put it down. Should be interesting.

have you found anything to put below the dash and behind the pedals for insulation for a 97 D90 with airconditioning?

thanks!

David, search for Bill Larson's thread it you haven't already. He posted some great pics, and it looks like the Exmoor matting goes up a ways on the tranny hump and firewall. I think most folks dynamat behind the dash/firewall, then purchase replacement footwell covers/trim (gets rid of those sagging/unsightly cardboard trims) and add more dynamat to the backside of that. That is going to be my course of action. I might try to add a soundproof barrier as well. Again, those are my observations from others who have done so. Good luck, pics when you do! BTW, you can get the 3 Piece Exmoor R380 kit from Lucky8 or SafariHP for around $750 plus shipping if you ask nice.
