Finally made some progress, went over to Russ's(eg9) house. We started on the deadening.

Sorry for the shitty pics, I forgot my camera(which isnt much better anyway)



The man, the myth, the legend, eg9



SDS rope on the safety bar, Second Skin Damplifier Pro on the outter door metal, close to full coverage as possible





giving Russ moral support while working his side. SDS Tiles at close to 100% on the inner skin.



being lazy, we "sealed" up the door with second skin pro(i got 26 sq ft during their black friday sale at 40% off) we didnt have anything to brace the opening with, but the motor assembly provides enough support in the middle of the opening(its the non-moving part of the window assembly)



started getting a little sloppy towards the end (drinking vodka on an empty stomach isnt the best idea while working on stuff, but it sure is fun :P) applied RAAMat ensolite peel and stick over the deadener



Russ finishing up his side, a little cleaner than mine for sure

couple of little updates from the past few days...

Got a few odds and ends in(the little stuff that adds up in the end):

Oem honda dash kit for double/single din install - I am very particular about using oem as much as possible, simply for fit, quality, and in this case, it matches perfect as well. It ended up being about 3x as much as a metra/scosche kit but it is worth it to me.

PAC steering wheel module - decided to do this as well to retain my controls, once again, i like having everything work like it should

speaker ring adapters - I decided to take a chance on these. They are from PVC Speaker Adapters - CNC Machined - In Stock or Custom Made and ended up being $35 shipped. If they will fit the anarchys then great, if not they will let you return them. If they do work, the owner of the site emailed me and said if you take 10 pics of the install they will refund half the cost, which isnt bad. They looked to be well made, 3 layers of pvc, totaling 3/4" thick, and are "bolt on". They are not "sealed" but that is nothing a few pieces of butyl rope wont fix.



one my cats (Hulk Hogan) trying to figure out wtf im messing with






I also did some more sound proofing work to the car on Wed and Thur. Russ was working on his car and helping his daughter with her new car purchase so I was on my own but he was nice enough to let me work at his house and steal his fine silverware while he was out.

Here is the SDS MLV. I was quite surprised with how easy this product is to work with. It is very high quality and Don did his homework with coming up with this vs a standard mlv which ive heard is sometimes difficult.

Started laying stuff out and cutting(razorblade works awesome, was doing all this freehand and my first time)



started to seam it all together. Instead of the vinyl glue he offers, i used a thin, strong ducting tape. I want to be able to remove/adjust if i ever need to, and I already had it. All cuts/seams had pieces to make sure exposed areas were covered.







after this was done, I was definitely interested in seeing if i could notice a difference. I had a few hours labor into it and the cost of the product. I can say with certainty that this is definitely worth doing if you want a quieter ride. I was extremely pleased with the reduction in noise from the rear of the car, and will be doing the whole floorboard once I order more MLV.

Made sure it all buttoned up like stock with all push clips and screw clips in place





And lastly, I stuff the shit out of the doors with 3m Thinsulate Acoustic that SDS sells as well. You simply cut it and apply with hot glue. This is another product I was interested to see the benefits of, and once again I was not disappointed. With the oem SI system, it sounds awesome. No rattles, I get a midbass thump surprisingly, and no buzzing.

The only thing I want to attempt at some point on the doors is a layer of MLV. I spent a couple hours trying to make a piece work but I couldnt quite get it. If i cant get MLV in there, it wont be a huge disappointment, but if I can work on it enough to fit it, then great.

I ended up selling the audible physics midrange drivers and picked up one of the best you can get. Scan Speak 12m 4.5" midranges. I also dropped the car off at Audiomasters to have Mark Worrell work his magic. I should have some good updates soon.
