Dynomat-ed Trunk - 2011 Escape [PICS]

Postby adelion - July 15th, 2013, 3:53 pm

Finished my insulation project with Dynomat Extreme (trunk kit). As usually with these types of projects, application took less time then preparation.
For proper application it needs to be applied direly to the metal body of a truck, so all related panels and trim need to be removed.
Here are some pictures:

1) Here is how the product comes

2) Removing black plastic panel on a floor was actually the hardest part - 4 screws that hold it were tighten so hard so no power tools would (at least the once I have) turn it. In addition to that they are located in not the most reachable spots.

3) First I thought that the package will be enough to cover the trunk floor only. But after I removed black panel and cover it tuned our that I will probably have enough even to cover wheel fenders partially. So I removed side panels and trim as well. I was very pleased to see the per-installed sound/noise proofing that Ford provides: there was white cloth with foam rubber and silicon (black on fenders) insulation on sides.

4) To remove everything you will also need to disconnect ABS cables running on sides of rear doors. That was fast and easy, so I started my application. On a picture below is the final result. I actually had about two square foot of Dynmomat leftovers, so I have unscrewed trunk door trim and applied it there as well.

Question is, how noticeable is the change in noise volume in the Escape now??

I can hear the difference right away: there is a difference in noise level at front and back now. Rear noise is like muffed, hears like truck is more substantial there. I am planning to continue the upgrade with Dynopads at front now.

Looks good. I did the four doors when I replaced my door speakers. I really want to do the trunk, I feel like most of the noise comes from there. I did notice a difference by doing the doors.

With just doing dyno on the doors especially for better sound out of your stereo makes a big difference, im running the stock limited sound with the woofer and doing dyno on the doors has made a huge improvement in sound

Nice job. I've applied my entire car with sound deader, expect for roof. I started with the front doors and kept going all the way back. I have even gone so far as added it to the underneath of my hood. It makes a huge difference sound wise, also the car feels more solid too.
