Some sound dampener like the above will do wonders, used it through my brother's Genesis and the difference going down the road and especially at 70+ mph is night and day. Use it throughout the car to reduce resonance, then if you want it even quieter you can do a closed cell foam deadener over the dampener. Most of the noise is from the doors, cargo area, and quarters, but doing the floor pans and roof would also help.

Sweet!!! That will be a weekend project for sure. Thanks man.

No problem, also contrary to what some would have you believe you only have to cover the center of the panels with the dampener. The best analogy I can think of is it's like dampening a drum. We went around with a plastic handled screwdriver and tapped around to find the resonant hot spots to put down the dampener.

There's a person on the Buy/Sell wanting to buy a pair of apparently OEM sheet metal covers specifically for that hole. I want to find them and coat them in rubber for sound deadening purposes. Having trouble finding a part number, though...

Got these puppies installed over the weekend in addition to a very much needed wash/wax. Very happy with the look.

This is something I've perfected over several years, since I live primarily around street parking and want to minimize sideswipe chances. I never rub tires or scrape wheels *sunglasses face*
Tires were about an inch or so out from the curb in that picture.
