I picked up a few boxes of butyl based thermal and sound barrier. I started with what I think will be the most difficult piece of the floor, the transmission cover. After 6-7 hours, an a lot of slicing and dicing, this is what I ended up with. This is tedious, but I got it all covered, except where the accelerator pedal goes, and with no overlaps

Impressive!

Looks like a really nice wheel for your car. I had a similar issue and solved it by welding a new centre in. Click my website link below then click steering and scroll down. This is a photo from the process.

I never make the same mistake twice, I do it 5 or 6 times just to be sure !!!
