    In my deadening thread some of you had requested that I get with Don from Sound Deadener Show Down to develop a sort of Tacoma Deadening kit. The idea was that I know many of you would like to deaden your Tacos but really don't know where to start as far as what to use where and how much you will need.

    I've deadened a few cars and that combined with my newest experience deadening my new Tacoma I was able to help Don put together a pretty comprehensive list of what you'd need to do your WHOLE truck...4drs, floor, rear wall etc. The roof isn't included in these numbers since I know that's not something most of you will do. I encourage it (I did it) but it's a tough road so I know most will opt not to. For doing the roof too you'd need about 10 more CLD tiles and 1 more 1/4" sheet of CCF. I know a few of you had contacted Don about what to get but he'd not worked on a Tacoma himself yet so I think the first list was a little too much for what most of you would need. Here is what we put together.

    Basically, this list is a little less in some key areas. You don't need as many CLD tiles as you THINK you do. Remember, full coverage isn't needed so don't even go there. MLV is the noise blocker and should be used in places where noise is an issue (floor and stuff). CLD tiles are only to be used where resonances are an issue; IE - Speakers are present.

    Some of you (the serious ones ;)) wont run rear speakers an therefore wont need to deaden the rear doors nearly as much. Simply order 2/3 the CLD tiles and only 3/4 of the listed MLV. I deadened my rear doors with a bunch of CLD tiles only because my sub enclosure setup will be kinda interesting and will transfer resonances possibly farther throughout the car than I'd like so mine was a precautionary measure.

    Also, an important change to the list was the use of 1/8" foam instead of 1/4" foam in the doors. I filled in Don about the fact that 1/4" is VERY tough to get in the doors and have the panels still go on well. This change will save you some money and a migraine later when you try to put everything back together.

    Happy Deadening!

    PS: I still plan to post up an SPL test showing the decreased road noise from my own install when I get a chance. Maybe next week if things go well.:D
