I have looked over other threads and online generally and can’t seem to get any opinions or pics of one of these pads fitted..

https://www.minispor...mini-70-00.html

Price doesn’t always equal value i Know.... I already have one as it came with my car when I bought it. Am trying to find ways to deaden the sound and I have just had a complete bare metal respect so am conscious of covering the nicely painted surfaces that are visible in dynamat.

How have people fitted these? Do they stay put. I was thinking of securing some kind of tabs with clips - a bit like how you keep car mats from slipping to secure it in 6-8 locations under the bonnet. Rather than gluing the thing to death.

Thoughts?

I've just fitted the Newton one that fits between the ribs so you can still see some of the paint - seems to be quieter to me, but it's difficult to compare because I've just fitted a bigger engine with a louder exhaust!

I'm loathed to glue these things in place because I would like inspect behind once in a while for rust.

I was hoping someone would manufacture a one piece rigid type, similar to modern cars, that could be held onto the cross members with plastic clips.
