Hi
on a 90 hardtop I have used a dynamat kit for the bonnet and silentcoat for the bodywork areas. Very pleased with the results. Got it all from eBay

I looked at https://www.nkgroup.co.uk/ but decided (who knows if I was right) that it wasn't for me.

It is a worthwhile project!
Good luck

How's about a pair of ear defenders or stereo headphones?!!!

I've put dynamat all over the bulkhead and inside the hardtop on my 110 - it's really easy to apply and stays stuck - not sure how good it is at soundproofing yet, though...

I'd put this stuff on the inside of the bonnet and the roof - it also sticks fairly well and is fairly easy to apply, although a hard roller of some sort makes it easier to do.

What diesel engine are you fitting?  My Td5 had lost its acoustic cover at some point in the past - I got one of eBay and the natural soporific diesel clatter has been deadened down quite a bit as a result.

I've certainly noticed in the past that filling the footwell with bags etc. has a huge effect on engine and road-noise, so I think a lot of it comes through the bulkhead - decent thick floor-mats and soundproofing over the transmission tunnel definitely make a difference.

Headphones (as previously mentioned) or just an acceptance that you're living the dream of Land Rover ownership are probably the most effective solutions, though...
