Seattle-area shop for Model 3 noise/rattle reduction work?

Just curious if anyone in the Seattle area has taken a Model 3 (or other Tesla) into a shop to get Dynamat/other noise reduction materials installed? Or other rattle reduction done.

I’m on a quest to make my TM3 as quiet as possible, and to kill some of the rattles the service center just seems unable to fix. I’m a little hesitant to personally install Dynamat in places like the doors, so I was wondering if there were any shops who were good at doing that.

I’m sure most car audio installation stores can do this.

It’s not really hard to do. You just need some basic tools and different kinds of sound deadening materials (Dynamat) which can all be bought on Amazon.

Bjorn on YouTube has a video on a car going through this process.

Back in the late 90’s I took apart my then brand new Acura Integra and Dynamatted the whole car for car audio competitions.

But you’ll still get a lot of road and wind noise from the windows, windshield and roof.

Thanks. I probably shouldn’t be so afraid of pulling back some trim. I’ll watch the videos!
I realize this is a bit late, but here’s a really detailed video I found for removing and reinstalling the door panels. There’s a link in the video description to a low cost set of tools for the job, too. Good luck!
