Quiet Ride "Quiet Riding Comfort Kit" - Corners, Edges, And Threads
Before reinstalling the heater...
Before reinstalling the heater core, we went ahead and sprayed it with fresh paint. We first lined up the studs of the heater core with the holes in the heat shield and then through the firewall. We then used a 3/8-inch socket to secure it into place.
To install the floor insulation,...
To install the floor insulation, we started with the transmission tunnel. The floor kit comes complete with all the pieces pre-cut for a perfect fit. Using the supplied spray adhesive, we applied the glue to the floorpan and to the back of the insulation (shiny side up). Once the glue is dry we centered the piece and laid it down by pressing from the center out.

We followed up by gluing the remaining pre-cut pieces to the transmission tunnel and sealed the edges with foil tape (supplied).
Moving over to the passenger...
Moving over to the passenger side, we applied the spray glue first onto the floor and over the Dynamat. From there, we applied the glue to the backside of the insulation. Next, we lined up the edges starting under the heater core and we worked our way back, paying close attention to fill all the hills and valleys of the floorpan.
We followed the same process...
We followed the same process for the driver side. Once glued down for final placement, we began the long process of sealing off the edges with aluminum tape.
Installing the rear panel...
Installing the rear panel kit is a similar process. Again, Quiet Ride Solutions provides pre-cut Dynamat squares to adhere to the back panel.
A little trimming will be...
A little trimming will be necessary on some of the insulation pieces. It's a good idea to pre-fit the panel up against the rear area before it's glued. In our case, we had some extra trimming to apply to the gusset in the center of the rear panel as well as the spare tire crossmember. The bottom overhang was also trimmed.

The roof kit comes just as complete as the rest. Six long Dynamat strips come for the ceiling; however, we cut ours down just a bit with the leftover placed
in three separate small squares.
