Self isolating in the woods, brilliant idea. I bet that is really peaceful and serene.

Long day installing sound deadening panels in the front, lots of odd shaped bits and cuts. Filled the front doors and rear boot door too.

New carpet back in with chairs all steam cleaned and hoovered. 06 carpet was push button so had to cut out a hole for low range gear lever.

Got 3/4 of a box left - next I will try and do the roof. It has helped massively - the noise level is greatly reduced with the engine sounding like a subtle humming rather than shaking various body panels.

This sound proofing is not cheap is it? I've considered it before and may well do kn the future, given you are pleased with it.

Which stuff did you use please?

Not particularly cheap, but cheap if you consider the size of the Jimny I suppose...? (Edit: I should mention the only reason I opted to get it now was because I put my saved fuel money from the lockdown towards it)

Here's the link: www.dynamicsounds.co.uk/stinger-roadkill...dening-material.html

Yes I am very happy with it so far (given the 20 mins of driving I have been able to do) - it's quality stuff and has a good weight to it (probably about 10kg per box).

Try uploading the photos to this website: postimages.org/

And then copy the 'hotlinks for forums' URL it generates and paste it in - seems to work nicely.

Cheers Daniel ! I've just finished the base and the fixing points on the floor.
The base is sitting in the Sun drying off a coat of varnish and then, I will give it a coat of Matt Black. I need to order some slides then I can make the drawer!

Spent a few hours using rivnuts and painting interior panels. I can now bolt in my panels rather than using the crappy plastic clips which keep snapping.

Rivnut in rear door sill:

Passenger side footwell speaker plastic trim sprayed and now attached with bolt. Also sound deadening material inside speaker housing.

Interiors coming together. Just the door sills and drivers footwell plastic to fit then its back to normal in the front.
