    Hi guys, This is a bit of a odd one. Recently got myself a T5, love it. Had the first "phase" completed by a company. (Insulation, Carpeting and Roof). Having just returned from a 2255 mile journey around France, I think I want to sound deaden it, I should maybe (definitely) have done this...

    Hi All, I'm looking at putting in some sound deadening into the front doors when I upgrade my front speakers, but I would also like to insulate. Are these separate products? Is there a one Matt fits all? What areas should I look at doing to get the internals quieter and warmer. I have a 2008...

    :confused::confused::confused: So after finally figuring out that the fella that did my conversion didn't put any sound deadening in the back behind the ply I have now taken up my seats and mat in the front of my van to see what condition it was in.
