Insulation for the Tailgate

Post by Piratepete »

Hi Guys
Having removed the inside panel from the tailgate, can see that it screams for insulation before I replace it.

Any recommendations for cheap insulation? Can I use roof insulation or foam? I understand it needs to be something that won't retain moisture.

Cheers!
Pete

Hi Pete

I’ve used wool loft insulation but have put it inside thick plastic bags first (bit like rubble sacks) that I’ve then sealed up.

If you’re anywhere near Bromley/Croydon I’ve half a roll left and some of the bags if you want them!!

Thanks sam
That seems like a good idea. Thanks for your offer, but I'm unlikely to be near you any time soon. It's quite cheap at B&Q though.

The difference it makes to less road noise is also an improvement
