ummm.....cant actually see that pic.....but sounds like your jus trying to secure a pice of wood over the tire well........u actually need to build a box in the tire well first.....there are several diff. ways to do this....and at that point u could easily attatch the wood to the box......

if i understood right that prob wont work. the wood just bounces n makes rattles due to vibrations. if that's the case, get like foam,

you could check in there n see if tey have somethingl ike that.

basically, if u look at the floor of the trunk, underneath they put foam so it doesn't make noise when it bounces. n that's what you would need.


good luck

I used sound deadening on the trunk floor and then bolted the wood to the trunk floor. The spair tire well was cut out so it could be part of the box's volume. See my pics in my profile to get some ideas.

if your going to make your tire well a box first thing is install dampener to the well. Then Seal the wood to the metal with something.If it still rattles then it is probably something else rattling.
