    I figured I'd show off what I did on my day off today. I've had this project going for a while and finally decided today was the day to start. Basically, I covered the inner and outer door skins in B-Quiet Ultimate and put on some diamond plate aluminum panels. Well, one down, three more doors to go.

    I measured out the sizes and shapes and had a guy cut them.

    That looks great. Why did you cut out the bottom section?

    Convenience really. I needed a way to mount the bottom panel and cutting it made it easier to mount the clip/nuts. It also made it easy to apply the sound deadener material.

    Makes sense. Looks like a good place to mount a speaker now.

    Post up when you get done, I would love to have a real world appraisal of the sound deadener.

    looks amazing. One question, where did you get the sound dead'ner? I will be wanting to pick some up when I do my crew cab swap definitely. Any store chains that carry it or something similar?

    It’s hard to believe, but I can really tell the difference in just one door. I’m not sure how much weight it added, but you can tell the difference when you close the door. It’s definitely heavier and it sounds a lot different when you close it too. I got the stuff on e-bay. It was just over $125 shipped for 100 square feet. The stuff is called B-Quiet and it’s supposed to be quieter than Dynamat. Their website is www.b-quiet.com. There are a lot of guys on other street car/truck forums that swear by it.

    Right now, I'm only doing one layer on each panel, however the outside panel is getting a layer and the inside panel is getting a layer, etc. I might do a double layer on the firewall and floor, but I haven't decided yet. Right now, I've probably got enough stuff to do two more doors. Yeah, I know. That's not a lot for the money. For me though on my daily driver, it's definitely worth it.
