if you are anywhere near me, be glad to let you experience it after salt season.
Prolly take you up on the offer. Right now I have a puzzling occasional non start to contend with.

I have the noisekiller transmission and engine blanket. they definitely made a difference to diesel valve train noise and transmission whine. I think adding the acoustic mat would really finish off controlling the sound. My engine knows (after it's warmed up) is very manageable knows. Now I'm down to wind, KM2 and a bit of residual tranny noise.

I like how they offer different kits and cut it to your vehicles specs. Easy install. Plus, it adds little layer of cushioning to the interior.

If there was a way to do both sides of the firewall / bulkhead, underhood, trans tunnel and the footwells / floor would definitely cut down on the diesel clanking....it would also help regulate temperature...both sides of the firewall would be huge...

They sell high temp sound insulation that could be applied to a clean firewall and spray on for for the underside. I'm not sure I would spray the underside but each to their own.

Did you source the noise killer stuff directly?

I also contacted them directly and they were fantastic to deal with. Prompt shipping and great communication. Had it in 2 days from order time.

1.5 inches thick? Where the heck are you going to use that?

I know...it is pretty thick. I was thinking to use it in the tub area. Not glue it down so I can take it out whenever. I contacted the seller and told him I was thinking to get 2 and try it out. Since he offered a discount for multiple purchases in his ad...he responded with $18 per and if I ordered more he'd go lower.

$18 per sheet is dirt cheap. 1.5" is awesome. The thicker the better. Take a look at a Mercedes Benz. The acoustic foam under the carpet is like...3 inches thick.

When it comes to noise cancellation, ultra-thick open-cell acoustic foam is the stuff you need. dynamat etc just does not have the NRC.

Went to a couple of military vehicle, Hummer and aircraft sites and read up about the techniques and products they use. These look interesting so thought I'd share.

Here you go. R380 tunnel and seat box over an LT95, with the matting system. I relocated the diff lock switch to the LT230 location and the (disco 1) e-brake handle to the top of the seatbox, adjacent to the drivers seat. The LT95 high/low lever is necessarily in the stock location. Overall, I'm quite pleased with it.

I've had the Wright Offroad mat in mine for maybe 8 years. I didn't notice the difference. It does dress up the interior which is nice. Now that the sting of paying for it is long ago forgotten, I'm happy to have it just for the visual appeal.

When I was replacing my bulkhead I sprayed everything I could with copious amounts of Al's HNR (heat & noise reducer) and that didn't seem to do anything either. I think none of it really matters unless you plug all the little holes where noise will get through no matter what else you do.

The one design detail I didn't like about the Wright Offroad mat is/was the material used to make it. They should have mixed in some fibres, because if you cut the mat to fit something, the cuts will turn into tears unless you're very careful when removing and fitting. So if you do need to cut, ovalize your corners to help prevent this.

Stuff looks interesting. Cannot tell if it would absorb water or not. One would think no.

How does the exmoor floor matting work against heat. Noise in a ST will always be there. Heat is my main aggravation.

It's been so long since I put it in that I have no point for comparison any more. It doesn't get super hot here; 35C would be a hot day. My feet get uncomfortable in the summer, but it's not terrible. Then again I have a 200tdi and you probably have a V8 so I at this point in my paragraph I realize I don't actually have any useful information for you.

My feet don't get too cold in the winter though, if that helps...
