    what more do I have to do to stop the rattles

    I drive a 2000 mustang with 2 kicker L7 10's in the back i put Two Gallons of eDead v3 in the trunk and it did not work it still rattles and it is making me mad i called ed and Anthony at Second Skin ed had no clue as to why it was not working and Anthony seed that his product is made with different stuff so he was not 100% sure but he seed to put a mat over the v3 the reason i got the v3 was because of what ant had on his site saying that vibration damping liquid can be sprayed, brushed or rolled on to achieve damping results 3 times better than any asphalt mat on the market and that v3 and his product wood do the same thing When applied in equal thicknesses the Two Gallons of eDead v3 where sposted to do 50sq feet each that is 100sq feet in the trunk of a mustang and the rattles did not stop even a little bit and it has been on for over 2 Munts and i lit it dry over night between cotes what did i do wrong

    Having no punctuation makes baby Jesus cry...

    As for your trunk rattles, the only way to know for sure is to go around and pinpoint exactly what's rattling, and take care of it on a case-by-case basis. This means using foam, Rattle Pad, whatever it takes to keep the panels from rattling together.

    Re: what more do I have to do to stop the rattles

    Like JimJ said find out exactly where the rattle is. Some cars have inner trunk panels that are very thin and have hollow spots within them. If this is the case in your car then you will need to foam insulate the inside of the panels to stop the rattle.

    Re: what more do I have to do to stop the rattles

    well if your mustang is like mine then i found what was causing rattles in mine. i took all of the stuff out of the trunk and on the left and right side behind the taillights, in the trunk there is a lil place that has 4 rows of small flaps. when i had the subs in the trunk it was pushing air into the flaps that lead into the rear quarter panels. i have no idea why there is flaps there to lead to the inside of the quarter panels but thats whats ratteling on mine. you can hear it good from the outside of the car, it sounds like its the inside of the bumper. other then that the only rattles is my back seat isnt bolted down all the way but im fixing to take it out and do a rearseat delete kit. if you need a pic of what im talkin about in the trunk let me know and ill try to get you one.
