Don’t know about SQm but I got 40 sheets of silent coat. Which did floor, arches and some of the wall. If you want to do more then obviously need more.

I used 2 full bulk packs or silent coat on my classic mini. That covers the floor, rear seat and rear seat bulkhead, two panels in each door and remainder in roof panel. For a caddy you’d need double that in my opinion

I bought the roll of dodo may which did majorities the inside. I bought a second roll though so I could do the floor and soon move onto the front cab.

I also bought 12sq MTR of carpet and got quite a bit left yet but still got my sliding door to do yet then will maybe have a couple of metres left

Check out my build!
