Thats ok Daniel, we know youve got sticks somewhere in the FBT. We just have to find them :wink:

Take the number plate off and put a blob of silicon on each side under were the bottom corners of the plate are, clean it with some metho first and it should be sweet, screw the plate back on and your done, has served me well

wont the expandable foam/sealant crack under the constant stress of driving and the bass combined??? TRZ10 had some bed sheets crammed into the gaps in the boot until someone reminded him that material will attract moisture, bring on the rust.....

i have taken the entire boot off car to start. place upside down, i then put the tar sound deadning stuff in the skeloten(boot frame) of the boot. left to dry over night.

the rear garnish is what i found to be the main contributer to the rattles. for this you will need to take the garnish off. put some 4-8mm foam on the back of the garnish and atatch back onto the boot. same thing with the number plate.

This fixed most of the rattles at the rear of the car.

good luck.

HERE IS THE ULTIMATE SOLUTION FOR A RATLING BOOT!!!
This actually works....i did this on my EL.
What you do is, you take off the carpet lining so you can see the metal. Then get silicon and fill all the gaps between the sheet metal of the boot, and the metal of the support. After thats dry get sound deadner, and paint the s**t out of the area covered by the boot lining. Do several layers.
This is proven to work. (this is provided that the garnish, number plate and spoiler are screwed down tight).

look honestly, unless your willing to remove your boot lid and recover everything making sure there is no gaps or anything, your always gonna get boot rattle, and even when you do fix it, eventually it rattles again after awhile
