Wow Deadbodyman, you really did your homework on this one.

You get an "A" for effort on this one! I'm proud of you.
How in the hell did you ever find that site?

Lay some shop rags along the seal of your trunk. The rags (single thickness) will be enough to see if you need a new seal to tighten things up a smidge. Next would be the reinforcement channels on the inside of the trunk that is underneath the outer sheetmetal. The factory usually shoots some rubber in between the two to isolate the vibration. You can normally follow the channels on top and lightly thump the sheetmetal to see where the vibration is occuring. Either slip a thin piece of rubbler in that area or a little squirt of silicone caulking and it should quiet it right up.

I believe the problem is the skin and the inner structure are vibrating together and it is damn hard to get in there to do anything. Just about anything that will take care of it will open up a door for damaging the skin so you see "warpage" on the skin, I know you don't want that!

I also say, turn the bass down. Not a smart ars answer, honestly, you have a choice, screw up the deck lid, or turn the bass down. Make up your mind what you want and choose one. If you choose you want to keep the base, simply put some expandable foam between the two and try to give it a LOT of room to escape so it doesn't split the two in half (it has the power to do so) and get it over with. If the skin has some warps or high spots, so what, you solved your problem.

I personally would leave the bass down, or get a smaller sub woofer or what ever you call it. I mean, that "style" is dead and gone isn't it? I quality sound system that REPRODUCES music is the best way to go and won't have that boom boom being that isn't a part of the music but created to wow your friends. Leave a quality sound system so you can enjoy your music and remove the bass so you don't have to screw up your classic car.

Seems pretty simple to me, but like I said, make your choice and go with it.
