Mega Multitruck engine compartment soundproofing | Aixam Mega Multitruck Van

Now that (when it isn’t raining) I’m starting to rust treat and repaint the front subframe, my attentions are turning to replacing the engine compartment sound proofing.

Last year, I gave the front end a clean with a Karcher, so that I could see the extent of the rust. Perhaps a good thing, as after doing that, I realised that the soundproofing panels (numbers 8 & 9 on the above illustration) were shot and holding water.
Over time this had caused the front cross member to rust at either end.

So now the soundproofing panels are on order, my thoughts are now about creating some simple internal mudguards. Which will be the next job.

Thanks to Pro Vsp for the diagrams.
