I've finally fitted the black carpet set i bought about 10 years ago...
I used the PVA blue foam that is used as exercise mats..
 
its waterproof and is also good for noise reduction
 
I have covered all the roof [under the headliner]
and everywhere else with this PVA foam..
 
behind the door trims etc.. under the rear seat etc..
 
and now i have also fitted the carpet, so My beetle is nice and quiet inside..
also very cosy with the heater on..
 
I recommend using this PVA foam as a sound deadener
also keeps the heat out/in etc..
I just used contact cement - fitting when nearly dried-
 
I've also gone back to straight unmuffled tail pipes
and My Wife has Not suspected anything [as yet]
 
cheers

Kind of OT, but not really -

How many guys here (or girls) with spouses (or significant others) who don't share your enthusiasm for VWs?

Mine is quite against my 75 Super - It has been very costly,  but not that bad.  It is just not a priority with her. 

I wish she would be.  Right now, the only one other than me who loves my VW is my 3 year old daughter.

Lee,

I had looked at that same material when I was doing my interior. I opted out of it because I was not sure how it would react if it ever caught on fire. Heaven forbid you or I or anyone else for that matter, ever get stuck in their car with it on fire.  I went with these jokers instead: http://www.secondskinaudio.com/
