    SOUND DEADENING

    most car audio shops sell sound dedaning products, most of these products are either spray on (like a spray paint can) or adhesive (like foam backed) adhesive sheets so depending on how big an area u need to sound deaden or proof will depend on which application you go for.

    Just bought some Lizard Skin ceramic insulation from Agriemach Ltd (phone 01342 713743).
    They claim it will reduce noise by 10 to 12 decibels. (And heat transfer by 25 to 30 degrees F).
    The stuff is a thick liquid which is painted or sprayed on, but it's bl***y expensive at ?159 + VAT !
    Haven't had chance to apply it yet (no access to a pit unfortunately) so I hope to god it's effective ! Will probably get the garage to put it on at the next service in January.
    Anyone else tried this stuff ?

    A bit of both probably !!
    I guess I've got used to cars that are quiet to drive & the whine has gradually got on my man-boobs over the past couple of years ! Shame, in all other respects it's a great drive.
