hey guys, I decided that when I pull all the wiring that I'm also going to pull the carpet and seats and try to quite down some of the sound of the motor. It's really really loud inside. I was wondering if there were any rattle can paints that will protect from rust that have that rubber stuff, I'm not sure exactly what it is but, the stuff that deafens noise? I'm only going to be painting the inside pan, the insides of the doors and in the front where all the wiring is. want to do atleast 3 coats. Does anybody know what I'm talking about or have any ideas on how many cans I can be looking at? anybrands in particular that seem to work good? Than I will do my wiring, figure out how/where I'm going to mount my fuel cell, thinking on the back fire wall behind the seat. Than I will re-carpet the inside and redo the back side panels with alot more padding. I'm going to put one of the buckets that I have up front now in the back so there will be a single seat in the back with a cubby on each side. 1 for the battery, and one for just some storage. I'm going to get some high back buckets that fold forward so a passenger can get to the back seat.

Anybody see any flaws with my plan? I may be looking to trade my fuel cell for a smaller one, this one is probably around 15 gallons. But with the cage I'm not sure if it will fit between the 2 cage polls just gotta check it out.

Just wanted to give an update on my build and where I'm at and my future plans!

I've heard of people using spray-on undercoating inside doors, etc. for sound deadening. I'm also on a quest to quiet down the inside of my car. Right now, I wear earplugs when I drive it...

Mine isn't quite that loud that I need ear plugs, the door panels and carpet and headliner is there so it's not like top fuel dragster loud, just loud enough to echoe and get anoying kinda fast. love the sound of the motor, but I need to be able to hear the person in the back seat ya know?
