This summer I am going to be doing about 8,000mi in road trips and so I'm trying to prep my baby for the ride. The next thing that has to go is the ridiculous road noise!

Help Needed: If anyone wants to lend me a dBA meter I'll be glad to take measurements to give a more precise result than just "it seems quieter"

Here are my goals:
- Under $100
- Under 50lbs. weight
- reduced road noise (by 3-7dBA if possible)
- eliminate rattles

I've chosen & purchased my materials:
- Ensolite (Closed Cell Neoprene/Butyl/Rubber Mixture) @ 1/2" and 1/4" thickness
- Polyfil (aka Teddy Bear stuffing)
- Great Stuff (Expanding foam Spray)
- Butyl/Asphalt Flashing Cement for the wheel wells

I will post my write-up in stages with pictures but first I'd like to get my hands on a meter so hopefully someone has one I can borrow.

Ok so no one wants to loan me their dBA meter... that's cool. I guess I won't have specific numbers, but I'll still post my writeup with pics... just no definititive numbers to back up the results.
