need tips for puttin on dynamat

I'm ready to install so i was wondering what tips you all had for me. Do you all work with small pieces or go for the biggest piece possible? Do you put the dynamat over all the wires and everything else? Just let me know.

dont dynamat the wires...that would suck later. I used a rubber roller for the simple curves and a harder wooden roller for the intricate stuff. Peel it off then rool it on. When your done take a hair dryer or heat gun and lightly go over it again after you warm itmthis will make it stick better. As far as the handle goes i dont know..thats the only thing left that rattles on my car also..

I dynamatted my doors a while back. I recommend using big pieces to cover up the large wholes in the doors then cut smaller pieces to fill the surrounding areas. It is just a matter of preference some like using large pieces and other small strips. Just make sure to test fit before you take the backing off then heat the piece with a hairdryer before you put it on, then go over it with a roller. As for the wires many people just dynamat over them but since I did it myself I took the time and cut all the holes for the wiring clips, that way the mat is more secure to the door panel. For the hatch you just have to take the plasic trim off from the inside and dynamat the entire hatch, I still have to do this. His is a few pics of my doors.
