Boot floor - Part I

LPG has been installed and there's still some space available around the LPG tank. If I knew this before hand I would have added some Dynamat Extreme on the sides of the spare tire well to keep the tank cool, but it actually doesn't need that. When the LPG tank is full it is ice cold, quite nice.

My LPG installer added some expanded polyurethane around the LPG tank to keep it safe in place. This might be a nice material to fill the A pillars.

The boot is quite big, so I ordered a bulk pack of Dynamat Extreme to have enough to cover the entire boot.

There is a plastic protection at the end of the boot near the latch. I applied Brax eXvibration to strengthen the plastic and block some noise.

Boot floor

During my vacations after the LPG installation I found that the boot floor above the exhaust was a bit hot, so I added some Dynamat on the right side as I still had some. Only one layer made a big difference blocking the exhaust heat.

On the exhaust area I added another layer of Dynamat Extreme.

Some Dynamat was also applied on the metal under the boot latch cover.

I only did the boot floor, to remove the lateral covers I need to remove the parcel shelf cover, the C pillars trim and the rear quarter inside trim. To take the rear quarter trim the bottom of the rear seats need to come off. To take it off the back of the rear seats also has to come off. This is quite the snowball effect, so all this areas will be taken care of in the next step.
