Remove the sound deadener with dry ice; wire wheel the rust marks; paint with kbs; reinstate the seam sealer; cover with new sound deadener

How many hours or labour and material would you estimate for this to take/cost?

Well tbf he's asking someone who has had it done so he has a rough idea of what it's cost others to establish a ballpark.

Sure, it cost $XYZ 3 years ago isn't perfect data, but it's something to know before he talks to a paint/body shop and they hurt him in the wallet

Someone just told me that factory R33 GT-R didn’t have sound deadening in the boot. Is this true?

I’m considering removing the sound deadener with dry ice myself, and then paying someone to remove rust marks, paint with anti rust paint and reinstate the seam sealer. If I don’t need to reinstate sound deadening hopefully I can keep the cost down.

So, I am a DIY type. Disclaimer: I am an amateur (very).

Costs, time and risk may not be relevant to others. All of the work that I described above was performed by me and I am performing this work throughout the whole car so difficult to say how much for the boot only.

If you want to do the sound deadener only in the spare wheel well, then not much point TBH. $20 and an hour of your time; if that. It is the heat cycles; seam sealer overrun; and carpet that makes this job a PIA when you move into the rest of the car.

Probably just 1kg. From memory that was the minimum that BOC would sell.

Thank you!!! I ended up getting 2 kg but they filled up a 5kg bucket. I got most of it off but there is still some left. What remains is kind of sticky. Not sure why I was unable to get it off. Where to from now? How do I remove the rest of it?
