Default Finally, hood struts for my Mazda 5

Own the car since March this year and can't accept it doesn't come with hood struts. So I went online and bought these for USD20 shipped. Took only 10 minutes to install and wa-la!

You can easily get one, even on ebay.

Mazda5 has poor sound insulation compare with my other cars, today I am putting new speakers anyway, so trying to get rid of the road noise with sound deadening mat.



First time doing this kind of stuff, not really that perfect.



I got these mat for cheap, so why not doing the hood as well? but engine noise comes out from both fenders and front grill, I feel that the noise bounce back to the interior, so I don't suggest anyone to do it unless you have nothing better to do.

Nice work on the sound reducing installation.
I completely removed my whole interior in my 2018 Mazda 3 and installed sound deadening materiel on the complete floor pans as well all the doors and panels. Then reinstalled the factory carpet back in on top of the sound deadening material and installed new super plush carpet on top of the factory carpet because it was still brand new.. I am now installing sound deadening material to many area's of the out side. Some of the most important are the fire wall and all the wheel wells. I will also be thermal wrapping my complete exhaust system back to the muffler. But that is more for the thermal effect for engine power stability and not so much for sound control.But it allows for the installation of sound deadening material above and close to the exhaust pipes.
Your seats are "kool". Diamond pattern, is that factory? They look like most of the rest of my interior.

Must be considerably cheaper in H.K. In the U.S. the cheapest kit on eBay is almost $70USD

I bought the kit from China, around $20usd shipped.

Couldn't fit the door panels back properly, I probably put too much pads on door, need to see what's going on.
