    Cool, I didn't think of adding sound deadening on my plywood, granted I used butyl rubber. Maybe I need to add a layer of foam too.

    Agreed, that looks OEM.

    +1, Ando. I can see advantages vs to the job I did. The differing layers (metal, "rubber", wood, carpet) might help dampen sound better than a similar thickness of a single material.

    I used 1/2" marine foam on the deck, 1/4" from the seat brace and forward into the rear foot wells. It's effective and comfortable for the dogs, but the foam adheres to the floor; not portable like this job. His would make cleanup easier if something were spilled on the deck... and I'll bet the seat could be installed atop it, if needed.

    I'll be interested if he notices a sound difference with the fan blowing vs turned off. I did... quiet enough in the car you could hear when the rear air exhaust flap opens.

    That looks really nice. Very OEM. Are you going to leave the rear seat belt harness?

    Agreed. Dynamat Butyl rubber matting stops panels from vibrating, eliminates the tin-can effect. The adhesive Noico foam used here should be more effective at taking those vibrating panels and preventing transmission into the air. Ideally you should have both systems in play.

    This is my biggest issue with my rear seat delete. On fresh air mode the road noise is pretty loud. I saw a member that put sparse quilt batting behind the vent panel, such that the vent could still breathe, but some noise was attenuated.

    Thanks everyone. I'm really thrilled with how it turned out. If anyone wants dimensions for my three piece system, let me know. I simply attached them (leaving a little space in between for bending) with Gorilla Tape before carpeting.

    New sound is muffled even more today with the additional layer of Noico on the trunk. The car is still loud, but I do love the sound of this car. I would def grab Noico from Amazon if you're in the market. Great cheap, product, and a breeze to work with. As for rear seatbelts ... I've used black zip ties die the time being and attached the metal part to the existing black metal brackets. I might just leave that as be in case I need to reverse it.

    Can't get over the amount of space in the trunk though now! Really happy.

    Carpet was a lucky find. Called a random Upolstery store up here in Canada and they had it in stock. It's called "Trunk Liner" if that helps your search. Wayne's Upolstery in Edmonton Alberta, Canada.

    Yeah, the seat belts don't bother me because you don't really see them from the hatch opening. The little parcel shelf blocks however, I tore those out. They bugged me for some reason. I'll need to epoxy them back on when I sell the car on I think.

    It is pretty crazy how much room there is. I can count the number of times I've been sad about owning a two seater on one hand, but I've lost track how many times we've had the hatch stuffed. Enjoy!

    Do you have a pix of the interior where you removed the shelf blocks? When the rear speakers were installed, they didn't put a screw back in the block on the right side. A clerk loading a big box bumped it and broke it half off... deciding whether to remove the block or re-glue it.

    For the seat belts, I unbolted them at the bottom and tucked the ends behind the interior trim.

    That's exactly why I removed mine, got sick of catching large objects on them. I'll get a picture next time I think about it. It's not pretty, but it doesn't bug me enough to cover up.
