Another photo this afternoon. Look at the back of this! 
So in the photo…we have the hatch on with the restored strut and fittings, the brand new lights and lenses, brand new number plate light, painted taillight panel section, and the beautifully polished stainless light surrounds which Locky was working on for ages to get spot on!

Do you plan on using the acoustic/thermal insulation in the doors and rear quarters?

We are doing the boot yes. Doors…I’m unsure if that’s necessary. I have heard that sound deadener behind where the speakers mount give you an amazing sound but they are just in the boot for my build and not in the doors.

I'm not going to worry about the doors - they are new and made of slightly thicker steel.
Also getting the self adhesive deadener in there would be a right PITA...

I'll will however stick some in the 1/4 panels to mitigate any 'drumming'.

I would definitely put some strips in the doors. I did to mine and It makes a massive difference. I put two strips about 100mm high. Not too difficult

Yep it is a PITA, but somewhat easier on the later 260z doors as the bottom opening is larger.

It certainly makes the door sound much more solid when it is closed, hard to tell about the noise-thermal benefit though.

Wish I had thought of that at the time :(

Did you the  precision seals for the rest of the car if so how was fitment.

Thanks

nick

Fitment and quality is 'OK' - they could be better but that's what we have.

If I was to do this again, I'd use new Kia Sorrento door seals.
Screen rubbers I'd get from Rob at the ZFactory.

I used the Kia Sportage seals and they worked very well.

The item numbers are : 0K01859760B and 0K01858760B

Seems Kia may not be making these any more  but some online suppliers still have stock:
