Insulation, Sound proofing complete

Well after a sunday of swearing, more so getting the old stuff off, I got it finished..

Old stuff would not move with adhesive remover, after several attempts with other chemicals it eventually came off with brake cleaner.



Gave the roof a good clean and sand down as there was some aluminium corrosion.


Then stuck in the self adhesive 6mm Closed cell foam, using heat to get it pliable. its now cosy in the snow..

I got this product off EBay, it's self adhesive 6mm closed cell foam, so it's essentially waterproof, sound deadening and insulation in one convenient package, I've done my MK 1 VW caddy a year ago and it's survived 4 scottish seasons. Happy days! Hope the link works guys

Good results?

Will have to look for something similar on this side of the pond.

You can get a closed cell carpet underlay quite cheap that is much like that. Check out the hardware store. The best closed cell insulation is the higher quality camping pads.

Any pictures? I've got to do this soon... driving expensive Land Rovers all day and then getting into my Defender at the end of the day is hard!
