1. screws.

2. silicone (I heard someone recommend this, and I'm thinking that it just might work. Easy to apply, you can always cut it out later if need be, cheap)

3. Make your own pivoting MDF arm to hang onto the many different holes within the trunk confines. :)

cars usually have two sheets with space in-between (hence the pain in the arse when damping) so as long as your screws aren't like 6" in length, a 1" would suffice.

DO apply damping mats in-between the metal and MDF to minimise rattling. If no damping mat, at least SOMETHING to absorb the vibrations, such as sponge or something...
