Two hours were spent on disassembly and deburring. The top longerons, sound reduction ("L") angles, bulkheads, rear most truss, top skin, and baggage back were all processed. In addition I cut the baggage area sound deadening material.

As an experiment I took some extra 3/4" sound proofing material and roughly cut it to the size and shape of my Jeep's floor mats. I've noticed that much of the noise in my very loud Jeep seem to come up through the floor. You can feel it in your shoes. While I don't have a sound meter, this should be an interesting test... even though the frequencies will be completely different, I didn't open up the doors, or the firewall, or do the rear passenger area.
