    Sorry to hear about your misfortune. But your experience is not wholly uncommon. It happens sometimes. Fortunately, your car appears to be in good shape with no rust to begin with. Pulling the carpets and seats and letting everything dry out should solve the problem. Fans and/or a bucket full of desiccant material (either silica gel or calcium chloride like DampRid) should help also. I recently replaced that non-woven insulation under the ECU with a thick rubber sheet cut to size for exactly this reason. I didn't want something that could trap moisture and promote mold growth or corrosion.

    Thanks.

    The car has it share of rust, its not just in these pictures.
    Got some not so healthy jack points, and the car have had a couple of rust fix jobs.


    The old carpet was torn beneath the pedals so I had a used one laying around. And while I have the console out I will mount the short shift kit. Ordered the last parts from Mazda.
    Guess I will mount these Lotus chairs as well. Its about time. Guess its like fifty year since I bought them.

    Self inflicted mistakes are the worse! Glad there was only minimal and easily fixable 'damage'. Look forward to seeing the short throw shifter and Lotus seats installed, keep up the good work Stian!

    I feel you on the wet insulation. I used duct/HVAC insulation for homes there. Found it at the local home improvement store.

    Thanks.

    Guess the aluminum coloured side is for heat insulation, or does it help extra on sound damping as well?

    I bought a roll with 8mm sound insulation for cars and was thinking of using it, unless there are something else that are much better.

    I think oem insulation is 6mm.

    The roll with insulation I was going to use is the roll laying up on the carpet on the picture below, if you can see it all the mess.

    Similar felt material to what's already under the OEM carpet, right Stian? It is decent, but you have to throw it away once it gets wet.

    Thats correct. Similar as oem just 2mm thicker.
    Plan is to remove all oem from the carped and glue the new to the carpet.

    Wet? Not planned getting it wet again.

    I don't know if it is quieter than OE because I did so much to quiet the interior and added heat shielding under the car. I think it's more comfortable, though. I know it was inexpensive and easy to cut to length. When I flooded the passenger side because I forgot to connect the A?C drain line, I just removed the wet stuff, cleaned the floor, sprayed some bathroom anti-mold cleaner in there and laid in new pieces from the extra I had. I didn't glue it to the carpet. The other nice effect was removing that old insulation eliminated a certain smell from the car.

    I also used aluminum tape to connect the new insultaion together. The new stuff around the tunnel is taped there to hold it down.

    Found a pic in my build thread. I suppose the insulation could be mounted in reverse, but this allowed me to tape the sections together.

    http://mazdaroadster.net/attachment....4&d=1443056235

    The insulation was about $15-20 per roll and I used about 1.75 rolls. I don't know how many that potatoes that equates to in your country. ;)
