I sprayed lightly with 3M Super 90 between the Noico and Thinsulate just to keep it from sliding out of place when I re-installed the carpet. However, I don't think it was necessary in hindsight. And it will make it a mess to remove should I ever have to.

I would not adhere the carpet to it.

I did not use anything with Thinsulate under the carpet. It was not going anywhere. Snap to remove. The B Quiet is another issue.

Sounds good, made a fat amazon order for various things with the 3m 77 included. Hopefully the thickstuff can be cut easily with fiskar shop scissors.

Haha, if you want to remove that B Quiet later on it's going to take a ton of dry ice and time

Somehow I used relatively new/clean pruning scissors and it sucked really bad to cut...

I don't remember any issues with cutting. It has been a while but i think I used a blade knife to slice it up and just peel back the adhesive lining. One small detail: when you cut the Thinsulate with scissors, it actually welds the two surface layers together a bit. It gives it a finished edge look but that is not what you want. The 3M rep said you better acoustic results by spreading the edges so they are not crimped together.

I used a pair of "shop scissors" and it cut relatively easy this time around. I missed that part about spreading the edges, I will do that next time on the other parts of the car.
So far did the passenger door (closes with a big CHUNK now) and cut some layouts for behind the bulk head/wheel wells, made a somewhat noticeable difference but will assume biggest difference when all the material is connected around the cockpit.
