Just bought 2 bulk packs of Stinger Roadkill and I am wondering if this is a task I can easily do myself or should I take it to an audio shop. Any advice on DIY installation of noise dampening material is appreciated.

Yes I plan on putting the majority of the material on the floor because that is where most of the noise enters the vehicle. I've watched many Youtube videos on the subject and it seems simple enough.

Provided taking your interior apart doesn't scare you too much, it should be a worthwhile project thumbsup.gif

not that hard if you have the time and place to pile parts while doing it. make sure to hit the fire wall with some of it and remember to leave the holes open for the trim to snap back into.
