how much of a difference? Probably not worth it for the money.

My radio is always loud anyway!

I would have to say yes, a little. I only did one light layer, I would love to get under there again and go further into it and coat some more on there!

Hell if I could I would rip the whole car apart, sound proof it and por-15 the inside of all the body panels so it never rusts

Know those stupid fleece/cloth wheel wells in the back? I pulled mine out (and sprayed up into the quarter panels to eliminate rust from the back) and coated the whole fabric sheet with it and put them back in. Now stuff doesn't get stuck in the fabric and its much easier to pressure wash the wheel wells out.

I undercoated the whole car just with jacks, stands and a tarp.

Just use the basic duplicolor rubberized undercoating. Should be about $4-5 a can. Can is black and gray.

Get under the car and get it everywhere you can, my wheel wells, backside of my quarter panels and everywhere around my trunk is completely done as well as the whole floor of the car.

badazz2010focus I would imagine how much weight that would add though.

Some places it would be impossible to dynamat. I would love to rip the carpets out and kill some sound. Our cars are noisy!
