Peel and Seal sound deadner

I have seen many posts with positive reviews about using Peel and Seal as a replacement for dynamat, I decided to give it a go after a lot of conparng and I will say it's was worth it. I have a exhaust on my 05 focus ZX4 SE and it's pretty loud so I wanted to do block that and as much noise as I could. So I have gone to town covering all door and truck space and I even ripped out the seats and took the out the carpet and double the floor layers just to make sure and why not. I used about 13-15 rolls from Lowes with still would have been more then half the costs going with dynamat, I have a pic of my door from when j first started all in all it has about a full roll of seep and peal on it, I went 2 layers deep insides the door panel itself covering most of the space( I would knock on it and see what areas leaked the most noise) then I applied about 4 layers on the outside making sure it was all pressed in no air pockets allowed. This was how I did all doors, I have this pic now and will posts more when I'm down, it's also time consuming and my hands hurts and wear gloves my hands turned silvery

Did you happen to weight it before you installed it,,,,, Looks good & like you said time consuming.

That's a good idea I didn't even think about it but it did add some weight to, I can tell when I close the door but it feels better when closing anyway

Devil's Advocate,

Now if you've gone to such great lengths to quite your car from yourself, why do you still subject those who also don't want to hear your car to the noise?
ie, quiet the exhaust and do everyone a favor

I can't, I get way to many compliments on how it sounds and I do love telling the story of how badass it is.

Looks like you did a good job and were meticulous. though all that extra weight probably isn't goin help move your car along. I've looked heavily into a cheap way to sound deaden. Peel n seal makes the way I would do it cheaper but IMO you put WAY to much for what you needed. Home depot has a few products available that gets you the three layers you really need. P&S is a good substitute for dynamat but you don't need to layer it like you did. Look into dB-3 for a substitute for a MLV layer and ultratouch insulation as a decoupler. check out SDS CLICKY for a good overview of things.

Yeah I don't care these days about going faster I did the extra layer to cover all the holes because I got an aftermarket door panels that holds tweeters and they were like echoing lol you would of have to hear it to understand I guess

Peal and seal is asphalt based. Dynamat roadkil hushmat deadskin and other name brands are butyl based. Thats the price difference. Butyl for 1 sticks better. But also it doesnt stink. Also the peal and seal will melt and really stink on hot days. You will know it one day after cars been sitting parked all day in the sun and you get in and it reeks! When that day happens pull a panel and you will find your nicely laid peal and seal melted and in puddles leaving a nasty mess. While i can appreciate the great effort and trting to save some money but im sorry to say unless you live in a place thats always below 60* you will regret it

I used to do NVH for Mustang for Ford and you don't need near that much sound deadener. Just 4x8 squares at most on large flat meter panels. On the doors, you have a really solid, 200 lb door! Go in thru the hole on the lower back corner and put 2 4x4 squares on the outside skin, one to the front and one to the rear. My door is light and silent.

Also (big thing) is seal up all the open holes except the drain holes at the bottom of the door.
