Eliminating interior rattles, noises, etc..

Just wondering if any of you had ideas when it comes to rattles or noises on the interior of the car. My 5th gen was wrecked by the PO. Interior though is in pretty good condition seeing that it spent 13 years in the Miami sun. The car had a butt load of noises on the interior. Especially coming from the rear deck. I have reduced the interior noises considerably. For one I removed the 3rd brake light. Replaced the Base deck with an SH deck. Pushed as hard as I could on the rear plastic covers. They weren't secure. The dash rattled as well. I put black electrical tape on the inside lip of the dash. I know that's ghetto. Can't see it with the dash closed and for now that one is gone as well. What else can be done to eliminate the remaining noise?

Closed cell foam behind plastic panels does wonders.

What would be a good way to bond the foam to the plastic panels? A certain adhesive maybe?

Re: Eliminating interior rattles, noises, etc..

Sound deadener showdown was once a resource for information on specifications for different brands of deadener. Now that the guy who started it makes his own deadener, there is a bias. That, and the info that was on the site is severely outdated anyway.
