Soind deadened along the way; did front wheel wells. Doors, under rear seat so far.

I made my first ever a pillars with fiberglass and bondo. Painted them with a hammer texture paint from a distance to make the texture. Then painted tan with a light clear coat.

Deadened the trunk walls and rear deck. Attached mounting board for top of baffle to screw into.

Amps will be a 6 channel US Acoustics and sub amp is undetermined.
6 channel is a big SQ amp. About same size as a Zapco 150.6. It has no crossover filters and only gain dials. Built like a tank. 150x6 @4 ohm or 450x3. I tested one of their first production runs of these and it was the best sounding amp I’ve ever heard. And big and beautiful!

All wiring to trunk is done. All sound deadening is done. Deadened the rear deck and attached a birch plywood 1x4 brace to the underside of the read deck using carriage bolts. The baffle will attach to this on top. Nothing is needed on the bottom because the baffle is made to press into place and it works!
Removed my full size tire and bought a donut spare to free up room for an amp rack that will be cooled by 4 big dead quiet fans made for home audio amps. They are usb powered so I bought a 12v to 5v usb converter that connects to my relay box turned on by the remote wire.

Few more changes. My trunk was like a convection oven with the big 6 channel AB amp so switched to audiocontrol lc6-1200 for now. Added a piano hinge to make access to spare easier and added a topping dac10s to the dash. Currently I now have a topping d10b balanced just because it has slightly higher snr

What deadener did you use on the rear deck?

nothing expensive lol. I think fatmat or kilmat with some siless liner adhesive back foam over that then some auto insulation with foil and adhesive tape backing. I also always cover all holes and gaps with foil tape first.

It looked like something inexpensive. Was it difficult to completely remove the rear deck panel? Are there lots of clips???

You have to remove the rear panels on left and right side, and there are 2 screws that hold rear deck. Once you take them out, the rest is holding by clips. I have the same car.
