most rice-o-bahns stock it, just ask for expanding foam for boot lids and theyll know what you want.

just be carefull, dont let the boot rest on your head shoulders as you can get stuck to it, dont ask how i know :(

DONT USE IT.... its a spray that u spray into ur boot lid and sorta looks like shaving cream at first in the way that it gets in there and expands a little, but after 10 minutes it expands so much it starts coming out every possible hole and then hardens, really hard, i used it in my bootlid, big mistake... apart from the fact it did f**k all do prevent boot rattles, it also made some bubbles in the top where it had hardened and pushed the boot lid up... instead, go to Alberts Car Stereo and ask for 2 Sheets of Extreme DynaMat. 2 sheets should do your ENTIRE boot lid with some remaining. AND IT WORKS. Seeing as expanding foam cant be removed once its in there i had to get a new boot lid and put this DynaMat in and never been happier,

what razor sais is true, dont use to much of it, as it does expand and could wreck your boot.

its ok as long as you let the foam keep expanding out the holes as long as it expands

Dude sellys liquid nails. That is what I used. Works fine. Does not expand so wont damage anything. Holds like you would not belive. No more rattles.

ok its really thin probably about 5mm thick and its silver foil on one side and cardboard on the other in between is like a squishy rubber type stuff, u peel the cardboard off and its really sticky on that side, you slip that inbetween the bootlid and the struts and anywhere else u are getting knocks or rattles, it doesnt even have to be between two metals, just ontop is fine coz it just alters the resonant frequency and dampens all the vibrations... any more questions?

its $70 a sheet from alberts,
u can knock them down to $50 if you show a little nipple like i did

one sheet should do your whole boot lid depending how much effort you want to put into sticking into every nook and cranny but its good to get 2 sheets if u can fund it, put it around and under the carpet and behind the fuel door and wheel wells and s**t just to numb EVERYTHING.

It is a sound dampening mat.
it has a bitumen material on one side which is coated with a self adhesive and on the other side it has an aliminmum coating.
both Dynoamat and Stinger roadkill are very effective.
