Id like to unearth the secrets of the sounds deadening material that was glued to the inner roof under the headlining.

I think there were 4 pads installed in a Deluxe:
2 front
2 rear

Probably more than 4 pads installed in a Standard.

Can we find some pictures of them in place?

How many were there?
What size were they?
How were they positioned?
Were Kombis just bare-roofed?

I have a late 52 deluxe at my shop right now with complete original headliner that I will be removing. Ill take photos and measurements of the padding/insulation before I remove it.
