I have an old FJ60 wagon. It goes real well, just is a bit loud on the road. Has anyone got any ideas as what could be used as a sound deadner in the cabin.

Ear guards and loud music while you sing along..... I tried to quieten my old HJ47 troopie. ... reflective foil, bitumen sound deadner, pink bats, insulation of various types, replaced door seals.... still too noisy. Finally fitted a Chev V8.... even noisier.... but at least it burbled. Cheers Royce

You can get stuff you spray onto the inside floor of cars these days.

Not sure what its called Auto place should know, but remove the interior of yoru car (also good chance to clean it out) and spray on, leave and refit interior.

A cheap easy way to achieve a noticeable difference in heat and sound is to go and buy some cheap closed cell foam sleeping mats (the thin coloured mats that walkers use ) from Kmart or similar, cut and glue them to the floor with contact glue (gel type is easiest to use) up the firewall and over the tranmission hump, just place them on the floor in the footwells, no glue, replace the original mats over the top, makes a ig difference. I've done it on several vehicles over the last 20 years, they last well and don't hold moisture.
