How to install sound deadener on doors *Pics*

Ok guys I sound deadened my doors today and I want to let everyone know how easy it is.
Ok first you will need to order some sounddeadening material.
I used eDead V1SE2
Link:http://www.edesignaudio.com/product_...products_id=52
I ordered 120 Sq ft of it cause i am gonna do my whole cab soon.


Next you will need
1.Cloth *Microfiber if possible*
2.Somekind of degreaser *I like Greased Lightning BLAST*
3.Sissors
4.Screw Driver
5.Roller *You can buy one at Lowes for cheap*
6.A sunny day to heat up the deadener

The Victim!!!
1998 Dodge Dakota Sport!



Step 1:
First you will remove the Door Panel, by removing the 4 screws on the door panel and pusing up. I circled
the screws in Green:

You will also need to take the harness off the window switches *if you have power locks and windows*
And the rod that is connected to the door handle.
After removing your door should look something like this:


Stock sound deadener lol:




Step 2:
You will want to clean up all the dust and crap off the door panel with the microfiber rag and degreaser
before you lay down the sound deadener:



Step 3:
Next you will cut pieces of sound deadener to fit on the inside of the door panel. Dont be scared
to cut them to small or to big. If you make it to big just fold the left over deadener on another
area on the door. And if too small you can always cut another piece and lay it on it.


Now you will pull off the wax paper that is covering the sticky sound deadener:


Now make sure the area your going to put the deadener is clean before putting the deadener on.
And lay the deadener on the inner side of the door panel.
Once you get the deadener on the door panel try to push you hand on it to get all the air bubbles out.
Now get the Roller and roll it on top of the deadener to ensure that it is stuck on the metal good.

Now on the creases there will be areas that the deadener will not reach so you will want to used the
sissors to just make a light cut into the top layer of deadener so it will be able to let it flex over
the lower part.

After cutting it lightly just push your fingers against it and it will stick good.

After doing the whole inside with the steps above it should look something like this:





Step 4:
Now you will want to put a layer on the outside of the door panel. All the holes on the door panel
are just access holes. So if you cover up the holes it really doesnt matter. And if you cover up the
wires that are there it really wont matter also.
So First you will want to put deadener over all the solid metal parts and then work your way to the
the open parts:

Do this over the whole door until you get the whole thing cover.*make sure not to cover up the
holes to screw in the door panel and the holes to hold the door panel on*
Your finished product should look like this:


door panel on *you will never know it was there*:


I hope this helps everyone out on doing this!
This will help keep road noise down when driving and if you are into Audio like it will help out on
the sound quality!

PM me if you have any question!
