’67 Volkswagen Beetle — Sound Deadening

’67 Volkswagen Beetle — Sound Deadening

My good pal Chris Vallone of Classic VW Bugs and I have had a long conversations about proper sound deadening for a vintage Volkswagen. The rear trunk area seems create the most noise, for obvious reasons.

You can use the more expensive Dynamat, but I went with a great product called QuickRoof. It’s super easy to apply, just as Dynamat and makes a big difference in sound as your pride and joy heads down the road. These photos were taking a few years back when I was restoring the interior of my ’67. As you can see, the QuickRoof goes on fantastic and at a fraction of the cost!

  1. How hard is it to take out if you ever need to? I had the Dynamat in mine and it was a pain to remove, when I started my restoration.

    • Charlie,
      It’s probably not easy. It’s about the same thickness as Dynamat. You’d have to heat it up just like pulling tar boards. It could however be done.

  2. Would you suggest using the quick roof on the roof of the Beetle? I thought about using it and then using the 1/4″ padding on top to deaden the roof noise. Im just worried it may heat up in the sun and peel off, has anyone ever done this?

  3. what about the floor of the car i am defiantly going to get this stuff and put it on the roof but what is your thoughts on the floor and about how many rolls should i get? i was going to get about 3 of them for the rear luggage area and doors as well as my ragtop roof. again what is your idea on the floors and how many should i get?
