Is it expensive to put some sound deadening material in my corsa boot? I need some of that dynamat stuff I think. Just don't know how much it's likely to be (never seen it for sale really).

Just wanna try and stop the vibrations abit - as you can here the boot vibrating loads from the outside and it's pissing me off now!

Also any got any links to get the sound deadening material cheapish off the net or a phone number of somewhere?

Each sheet is 4 square foot according to the box

BEfore you fork out for it take of the panels aroung boot and tighten every bolt and screw cable tie wires together and tape them to a surface so they dont rattle and then dynamat on the main surface area then pad out with aload of very dense foam and you will be sorted

But if you cant afford dynamat straight away then just do the rest and you will be very surprised to the difference

Fear is right, flashing tape is no good!
I have 20 rolls of Ivonhoe in my car and it makes soo much difference. Bass is alot better and no sound from front componets is lost.

Can you get away with just doing your boot? I'm considering this.

Extreme and Original, What would be more effective (if only lining the boot)
1 layer of extreme,
2 layers or original,
