How to make the van sound less like a can on the inside.
Driving from Mercedes of Seattle back home to Utah we quickly realized we needed to make the van sound less like a tin can on the inside. After watching several YouTube videos, we decided to implement two different noise deadening solutions along the metal surfaces of the van interior to help dampen the noise.
Mat66 Car sound Deadening Mat would be used for narrow areas such as side walls in between structural supports, inside door panels, etc.
FatMat Rattletrap would be used for larger areas such as ceilings, wheel wells, ceiling, floor between flooring ribs, etc.
We started by removing the van flooring.
To finish, we put the flooring back and took a drive. Amazing the difference this simple design element added to the noise dampening in the van.
