Couple updates before delivery

Picking it up Tuesday but before that I placed an order for a few updates that I'll be doing.

Dynomat: I always pull off the panels and add some further insulation to our vehicles. I'm not sure how much I'll need but I ordered up a few boxes to apply to it over the next couple weeks. I didn't have do much on my previous Audi, but the Acuras from days past and my current Infiniti benefited greatly from it.

Carbon Fiber Wrap: My wife is 50 and I'm close but I'm not old enough to want the wood trim in our ebony interior, so I ordered up some gloss coated Carbon Fiber Wrap to add a more sporty appearance to the interior. I waffled with using brushed aluminum but I like the look of CF

Poor Weather Matts: Ordered up some official MKC winter matts and cargo area liner online to save some bucks. Being my wife's car with an 11/15yr old I keep them in year round to make cleaning up easier

ProClip Cell Mount: I'm a huge fan of their mounts. Super strong, clean and very integrate looking.

Ceramic Coating: I'm a huge fan and moved to ceramics nearly 2yrs ago for most all of my detailing customers. I plan on using Gyeon's Syncro package on her Red Metallic and am looking forward to how their Skin Layer compares with CarPro's Gliss that I'm running over the two coats of Cquartz I have on my car.

Will post pics and progress along the way. Stay tuned over the coming weeks!

Congrats. I would skip the first 2 items.

1. The Lincoln is pretty sound-proof. Removing panels only leads to possible breakage & more rattles. Furthmore, Dynomat is over-priced. Check out sounddeadenershowdown.com. You could maybe add some to the rear hatch area -- as that would be easy to get to. I wouldn't start pulling door panels -- unless you're upgrading audio as well.

2. Cheap vinyl over-lays will cheapen the interior. The wood trim is real (at least mine is), and not some shiny plastic.

Good luck on your purchase.

I appreciate the insight but both are underway. I use Dynomat as a general term like Kleenex. Deadening wise, there's always a big improvement. I did the doors today. Not difficult at all. The inside stock is quiet but no doubt benefits from deadening. Trim wise, I don't use overlays. This is a true wrap. Looks awesome. It would be hard to tell this from the real Carbon Fiber in my German fun. Pics forthcoming. The wood is fine, real yes, but it's still rather old-school and IMO a bit out of place on a fairly contemporary design. On a larger SUV or the Continental perhaps but on her car not so much.

Here's another pic after she took delivery.

On my last 5 or 6 new vehicles, I've found that having them Ziebarted went a long way towards making them quieter. I noticed a big difference especially in my Ford Escorts. It also (hopefully) has the benefit of helping with rust prevention. They love their road salt in the winter here in Syracuse.

@pdqgp , I'm curious to know if you found any acoustic treatments in your '18 MKC Reserve doors when you installed the CLD ('DynaMat')? My '14 Escape had nothing in the way of acoustic / noise reduction materials in the doors, only the molded poly vapor barrier, and I'm wondering what, if anything, the MKC offers beyond that for noise reduction?

FYI I've done the 'full' doors, cabin and floor acoustic treatment on my '14 Escape (CLD + MLV w/CCF decoupler) to great benefit, though a lot of work. As a potential MKC buyer I'm interested to know what distinguishes the Lincoln MKC from it's Ford Escape counterpart in this regard other than Active Noise Reduction and SoundScreen front door windows?

Thanks in advance for any insights you can offer.

I am also using a noise reduction material to reduce noise from my house because my house beside the road and many sounds come to my house. I using a noise barrier wall and get benefitted to use this.
