IMO , It would be close, as I have a sedan I cant Give you an exact answer as to amount to cover everything but in my sedan , it is 60" from rear seat bolts (ones closest to front seat ) to the trunk lid , 40" from wheel well to wheel well, so that as roughly 17 sq feet , that leaves around 20 for your hatch and c pillars

02Zetechse - it seems that you know quite a bit about this stuff. I've always heard that this stuff works great at reducing db's as well as heat - still the same case? I've got a 74' Bronco that I 4x4 and the exhaust heats up the sheet metal something fierce - would this stuff work to help reduce the heating of the floor boards? I'll enjoy the sound reduction no doubt, I'm just curious if it can handle the heat.

I've never held any of these products before, are they an open or closed cell design? I'm curious if this stuff will suck up and hold water or not...

Thanks- I've been pondering about coating the floors and doors in my 08' as well, its quiet as is, but it can only get better...

@ Kyle
open cell foam, closed cell foam .... the product they are talking about is not foam :)

I dunno about heat, but I can say they do help with noise.

let's hear what 02Zetechse has to say.

You do not have to cover everything with soundproofing. 70-80% is all that you really need. Closed cell foam will make up the difference(I do recommend 95% coverage with the foam).

Remember, not to cover screw holes or, clip holes with your soundproofing. Also use a grease pen, dry erase or, blue tape to mark out where the door card meets the exposed part of the door frame or, it will look like crap(try to stay about 1/4" behind that line). WD-40 will remove the adhesive if you mess up.
