    Most people use Dynamat but there are options out there

    Have a Google and come back with questions

    I used ping jing. Cheaper alternate to dynamat. Took two boxes.
    I did not want to glue anything to the floor to enable ongoing rust prevention. So used a thicj coat of ankor wax then 2 layers of mass loaded vinyl damper. Pretty sure each layer was 4kg/m2. Then carpet.

    I got this stuff from VW Heritage.

    STP Diamond Aero Sound Deadening Pads 12 sheets of 75cm x 4.5m

    Seemed cheaper, the sheets are actually 75cm x 50cm I think.
    Haven't used it yet but my mechanic is impressed by it.

    Dead easy. Just need a good craft knife.
    Clean panel surface first of any loose material and stick the deadner on.
    Cones with a roller to push it on with.
    Easy

    I remember the best sound deadener was when I had to move 3 two seater lounges in one go in the rear of the kombi - I swear you could not even hear the dak dak ... although wasn’t very practical
     
    Poptop and Grantus like this.

    I'm sure I used some astroturf/fake grass joining tape for the panel vibration, then I used some ThermalBrane 6.5 for insulation/soun deadening.

    You don't need to cover the full panel to stop the vibration, mainly its just a section in the middle.
