    Default reinforcing the trunk

    As some of you know, I got a couple of thumpers in the trunk. One of the WORST pieces that rattle is the rear reverse light. It's all one piece, and spans from taillight to taillight. I have the wingnuts in the trunk tightened as much as possible, but the damn light still goes crazy.

    There's also other things, including the trunk lid itself. Bah.

    Any ideas on reinforcing the hell out of it?

    Maybe wedge pieces of foam between it and the bumper.
    I assume the panel between the rear window and trunk lid rattles too? If you figure out how to make that quit, please let me know. Mine always rattle just with some decent 6X9's.

    Yes, that one does too. That actually annoys me more, because the rattle is much more high-pitched X_X
