If you could do it in half the time (maybe with a buddy to help you out) it would be worth it. Definitely don't do it by yourself unless you have done it before. I still haven't driven the car enough to fully get a feel for it, so can't give a proper review yet.

I sound deadened the floor yesterday and took apart the car on Thursday, and let me tell ya, it's not an easy job to do by yourself. Took me 16 hours from start to finish, to achieve a ~5-7dB loss in road noise while driving. I did come up in other ways too though, I found about $2 in change, and a sweet-n-low packet at the bottom of the center console! Also learned a lot about our Cadenza. Disassembling the car was fairly easy, just time consuming. The car already has some sound deaden material from the factory(not much), and some padding in between the pedals and the engine to reduce engine noise.

I'm always interested in pics and a write-up - while I probably will not do it, sharing with the community to broaden knowledge is always a good thing in my book.

It really isn't all that bad. If you take your time and document each step and make sure to not lose/break anything, putting everything back will be as easy as taking things off. It took me 16 hours from start to finish but if I was to do it again it would probably take me half the time.
