    I'm thinkning about getting some sound deadeners installed in my car. I do a lot of highway driving and want to finally get my car a little quieter. Can i get this job done at a bodyshop or is it better to go to an audio shop? Know anyone in the la area? Preferably in koreatown or sfv area. How much will this set me back and which areas should i get deadened? Will it make a big difference? How many of you have done it already?

    I tried searching and got a lot of different mixed reviews.

    If you have a free weekend and feel confident enough to take your interior apart you could probably do it yourself. Their is a vendor who sells the material and if you are a Toyota owner he will give you a discount. Let me do some searching for the guy. It slips my mind right now. Someone chime in if you know who I am referring to.

    I'd start w/ the roof, then doors, then rear wall, floor and if you're really ambitious, the firewall.
    Its very time consuming. I did my last truck and will do this one eventually, but trust me, do it yourself. Its very easy and we can point you in the right direction w/ product selection. Paying someone to basically apply stickers (deadening material either sticks on, or you use a spray adhesive) is really a waste. How much it costs you will depend on how thorough you want to be. You could easily drop 1k+ though.

    How easy is it to remove the roof? I had my doors done when my system was put in. I think DynaMat was used. Now it seems like the roof is the next nosiest place in my truck that needs to be done.

    I havent removed this roof liner yet, but I've done 2 other vehicles and its really not bad. I dont see why this one would be any different. Usually just a matter of removing the overhead light/console things and any oh-shit handles along w/ a/b/c pillars. Can sometimes be tricky to wiggle it in and out of the vehicle and may help to have a seat or two removed. All in all, my last truck, I took down the liner, deadened it and reinstalled in about 1.5 hours. Depending on what mfg you go w/, considering doing one layer of a structural vibration dampener and a layer of an mlvb/noise barrier.
    You'll barely hear rain drops, let alone wind noise through the roof :)
