Hey guys,

First post, long time viewer first time member, i have a 1998 VT executive Commodore it has a full body kit unaware of what it is (sorry) i know the mesh on the back kit rattles but i can stop that with silicon or rubber stoppers (i hope) But i will still get a fairly loud rattle from the boot, i have a JBL Twin 12" SubBox 1800 Watt, Anyone got some advice from experiences?

Find out where the rattle is and fix it... It's pretty simple. Press on stuff until the rattle stops, then jam something in between whatever is rattling. You might even need to get in the boot :D

Number plate is usually common problem put foam behind it.

if its the actual boot itself you can twist those rubber feet things so its longer. cheap and quick. It kinda helped with my rattles..

Builders expanding foam (the stuff that comes in a can) between the inner and outer skins of the boot. It doesn't look pretty though ;).

And be very careful because the stuff can break the welds on the bootlid. This is not a method a proper installer would use.

Yeah i've thought about using the same stuff, but after seeing how much it much it expands, i decided against using it:thumbsup:

agreed, i just drilled two more bolts into the bottom of the number plate/boot and that stopped problems, my mesh from my clubby kit was making some noise too, just go around the mesh with some glue and it will stop it most likely. best of luck.
