I guess I wasn't clear. I would definitely use the Dynamat on the inside of
the door. Great stuff. Then use the factory moisture barrier on the outside
panel instead of VB2. No problem with VB2 as a moisture barrier. Just not
designed to be repeatedly removed and replaced like the factory barrier.

Default Door sound insulation

Thanks guys....good information. I'm picking up some Dynamat later this week, and reusing the factory barrier.

Appreciate your insight.

Default Old insulation removal

Just getting back to this project (now that winter is finally here in FLA :-)). Any tips for removing the old door sound insulation? Most of it comes right out, but there is some remaining that must have been installed with epoxy.

thanks

Marc

Bruce7, thanks for going through and documenting this. Very thorough - I like the narrative about the theory and the reasoning behind the choices made --- very "Cook's Illustrated" esque --- I mean that in a good way.

I will be pulling my door panels off later this year to cover them in leather and will attempt to duplicate your project just "while I am in there".

Tip - while you're in there remove the black plastic cover over the central locking mechanism secured by two countersunk screws located above and below where the door locks to the body and give it a good lube with something like WD40.

I've just done mine as the trigger on the outside passenger door was stuck hard against the inside of the door handle making it inoperable from the outside.

For a while I thought I was up for a new lock but WD40 fixed it and the locks are once again smooth and notch free.
