Nice rust trap that you have made between the tape and the floor. Lets hope you don't have any leaks!
See first post:
First thing I did pull everything out the car and after making sure there was no repairs needed or leaks...
Floor was also painted before mass loading so no moisture trap either.

Did you notice much of a reduction in road / engine noise? Whats that on your steering column?

The thing on the steering coloumn is the hand controls, push for brake and pull for go! I'm paraplegic so can't be doing with all that pedal pushing
I drove the car for about a week after stripping the original stuff out and mass loading / proofing it, the difference is massive!
Obviously hard on the throttle you get a fair amount of noise still but it's mostly through the windscreen (so I'm told).
While cruising it's surprisingly quiet in the cabin. The removal of all the buzzes and rattles (mass loading) helps a lot with that too I find as much as the actual reduction in road / exhaust / engine noise blocking.
I'm half tempted to try it with the ultra swanky expensive stuff to compare, but I think I'll try and pinch a lift with someone who's already done it first
Some engine bay side blocking helps too, Ruckus used some stuff that I'm going to add to my list of things to do.
