oops.

remove the rear deck panel. make a 1/2" or 5/8" wood baffle. use weatherstripping closed cell foam between the baffle and the metal, and between the speaker and the baffle. screw the speaker to the baffle. bolt the baffle to the rear deck. carpet the baffle if it is visible.

then find a new rear deck at a junk yard and get the factory look back. or, modify the rear deck further, so it looks right.

you can't screw speakers to cardboard panels. :) as you no know.
