Hi everybody,

before I install my panzer plate I was thinking to stick some tar roofing felt roll material on top of the plate for noise reduction. Would that be a good idea? If not what do you recommend?

Do you like the smell of freshly laid asphalt? I'm sure it's cheaper than Dynamat by a factor of 10x though!

that is what I was thinking Chitty, it is durable, thick (good for deadening of sounds) and will also look nice and clean when looking down from the top of the engine. Everything else is just too shiny and sensitive to dirt, oil etc.

I have a Panzer plate on my Golf. I just didn't notice much increase in engine noise, or road noise, at all. The only noises it makes are these wonderful scraping sounds when it rides over boulders on jeep roads.

Trim your stock plastic belly pan and place it ontop the Panzer Plate. The stock plastic pan has all those little sound deadining squares. If you like how it looks and if it reduces the noise,maybe attach it permantely. I don't think I would use roll roofing as it is flamable. Bad idea.
