I considered adding some kind of sound dampner to the removable panels on the sides of my v-drive and maybe on the bottom side of the middle sundeck hatch to reduce engine noise. Anyone done this and have ideas on what material to use?

Could dynamat work?

Kevin, not really. Regular Dynamat is a deadener and reduces vibrations on whatever surface its applied to.....mainly for rattles and harmonics. You want an acoustical foam material with a heat barrier for this application.

Ryan is right on. Cascade makes a few diffrent engine hood blankets that work in this exact same way

The good stuff is pretty expensive....,11640.html

This stuff has an inner core that is like a lead sheet, then has foam on either side. Note that it weighs a lot, one pound per square foot. It is very effective, however.

Take your time and get it glued on really well. Being so heavy it wants to pull off the walls so make sure the surface is clean before trying to stick it down.

I did this project a couple years ago, it has held fairly decent. The only thing that has fallen down is the heat reflective tape, it does not bond well with dampner. If I was to do it again I would just leave the seems a little crude showing the dampner. I used the spray on glue from 3m the strongest hold I think number 99.
