Does anyone know what to use to replicate the original bitumen type floor covering. I had to chip some away to make repairs but do not really want to strip the whole lot out.

Just don't. Stuff is mega heavy and is a water trap.... I removed all mine and it hides everything. If you want to quieten down a Mini get Silentcoat, £80 to do the entire car and it'll be less weight and more effective than the bitumen stuff.

I used this stuff, eventually sets hard like the original..




I know I could have been neater




Also used it under the bonnet, that made quite a difference.

Panky, thanks for that mate good pics also. I think it will be just as good after it's been heated with a heat gun. Trick is to not let water in in the first place but that's not easy with a mini.

Silent coat, dynamat or whatever product you choose, they're all the same thing; a bitchumen based material. 


The simple rules of sound deadening is to add mass. It is the mass of an object that absorbed the sound wave.
