ENGINE COMPARTMENT PREP – 1956 Chop Top VW Beetle – 172

ENGINE COMPARTMENT PREP – 1956 Chop Top VW Beetle – 172

I love my Air-cooled VW engines, but one thing is for sure VW Beetles are noisy and hot, and this is Florida! I need some appropriate insulation to make this chop top VW Beetle more enjoyable to drive, even in the hot Florida summer months! So I picked up some Killamat sound deadenging and some Gosche insulation to keep the heat and noise in the engine compartment.

Peter Kelly says:

Sound abatement is a great idea. And the heat shield as well. Will you be putting any more around to reduce road noise?

The brush finish is a good idea.
