  • Fixing Noisy tin can... “Amazin”

    I’ve had my Prado for 10 years now and always been unhappy by internal noise while driving and finally bit the bulkier and decided to strip it back to the bear metal and Dynamat/Sound/Vibration proof it

    simply walking round the car and tapping finger tips on panels makes way too tinny sound and proof that not very much had gone into this from factory.

    particularly the roof - SO... got the roof lining down last night and simply disgusting what I found.
    basically the roof skin is simply a big sheet of thin tin floating above the cross members and not even attached.

    so first step - sikaflex roof skin to cross members - see/listen to before and after videos for the difference - Amazing - and this is before even applying the dynamat

    Video of tapping on roof with finger tips before any fix applied - you can see from the video and the sound resonates for a while even after the tap and how you can see the skin isn't even firmly attached to the cross members

      And here the comparison after simply applying automotive sikaflex between the skin and the cross members - 10 times better and haven't even done the dynamat yet.

        Pretty good improvement! It's like they were supposed to be attached at the factory but weren't!

          I do this on two of my Honda Jazz, but using butyl "asphalt" instead. $80 later the car is like a mercedez ha..ha..

          The Prado is not too bad in terms of panel noise but definitely I will do that as well
