STANDARD SOUNDPROOFING FOR MK2 'S' (4 replies)
As part of a full rebuild has anyone fitted sound insulation felt to the underside of the rear parcel shelf as per the specification sheet attached?
I did and it didnt really make that much of a difference. It best to put insulation on the panel behind the rear seat and the part under the seat (vertical) .
Also a few years ago BL sold an insulation kit that was rubberised. NOW THAT MADE A DIFFERENCE....sadly its no longer available.
It seems a silly place to put the layer of insulation without any protection added to it.
My 1968 mk2 cooper 998 has evidence of felt type sound proofing being glued to underside rear shelf, I believe this to have been there from new, I will be replacing it if I can find any,
In the super_cooper_guide soundproofing spec it states 3/4" 19mm thick felt was used, I have looked on the web for something similar but it doesn't seem to exist in that thickness today.
Woolies sell a 13mm thick fire retardant felt with a black latex coating, I am thinking of adhering a 6mm layer of felt to this to obtain the correct 19mm thickness with the black coated surface on the bottom facing into the boot.
