    Basically, I just rolled them up and jammed them in as far as I could.

    Yea my window doesn't rattle, nor does the rear deck. But they both move so much my trunk lid rattles some. My ports are aimed right at the rear window

    Re: Stiffening trunk lid

    The biggest issue with trunk lids is the gap between the skin and framing.
    If you can get deadener between them it will work. I could not so I used spray foam. Just have to use a little at a time because it will keep expanding for a while. And make a huge mess

    I will be completely honest, I hate spray foam. I like the results but I hate using it.

    That being said I did use it in every rear panel and yielded some pretty solid results.

    Good call on the towels I just foamed the lid so once it dries I'll see if the towels work

    Let me know how that does foam does.

    I didn't foam the trunk like that so I might do what you did if it turns out well.

    I ended up using 4-5 cans of the yellow top spray foam and then deadened the lid with noico, way better than before!

    It was probably all for nothing tho because come April I’m forward firing and sealing off the trunk lol

    I'm thinking adding some weight somehow and then foaming the gaps and crevices of the lid.
