for the labor day weekend, I took out both the front panels and sprayed on the rubberised undercoat to the insides of both the panels. What a difference in audio (even when standing still) and road noise.

I first applied the Dupli-color "Protective Paintable Rubberized Undercoating", followed by a thin layer of "Professional Undercoat with Sound Eliminator-Quick Dry". The reason I did that is that the second product dries very quickly and forms a thin rubber coating, whereas the first coat is pretty darn heavy (adds mass) but is slow to dry.

Well, it is done and the panels are back on. I thought about taking a picture, but it(undercoat) is pitch black (courtesy carbon black).

road noise is wayyy better controlled now. my summer tires are sounding like passenger tires, to give you an indication.

Chikoo:
Was there some reason you used both products, and not the quick-dry stuff alone? Was this recommended by the manufacturer?

Like I said

The reason I did that is that the "Professional Undercoat with Sound Eliminator-Quick Dry" product dries very quickly and forms a thin rubber coating, whereas the "Protective Paintable Rubberized Undercoating" product is pretty darn heavy (adds mass) due it containing asphalt and is slow to dry and does not give as good a feel when dried as the first one.

I made up this decisions myself. The manufacturer recommended nothing. I just went to Autozone, looked around and thought of choosing these two products and see which one is better. Turned out, I liked the combo better than either one of them all alone.
