Ok, so I admit I don't know squat about cars. That's why I was very nervous to try this install on my own. Normally, I waist my money paying someone else to do things, but since people have posted that this is an easy task (only time consuming), I decided to give it a go.

The trunk was fine. It took about 5 hrs, but I managed to tackle the task. Then came the back doors . . . . . How the hell do you take the door panels off!?!?!?!? I unscrewed all of the screws, and as I was trying to gently 'pop' out the pins, one of the pins completely busted! I take it I wasn't doing it right. Could someone please help an idiot out with taking the door panels off?

Also, is the 'styrafoam speaker tray' I've heard about that carpety looking material that you can see from the trunk? And is it advised to completely remove this?

Thanks in advance for all help.

You gently pull up and then out AFTER all screws are removed and the clips won't break. There is debate on the speaker tray. If you are replacing the factory speakers, then I would say yes because the foam is to make the factory speakers "feel" a smaller enclosure. This helps the speakers give a warm, smooth sound.

How much is the Dynamat, I was going to go with Fatmat, any suggestions wes.
We used Stinger Roadkill. I really like the flexibility and adhesiveness of this product. We ran out and were going to use Dynamat, but we compared and ordered more Roadkill. One thing I liked was we only needed 1 layer as compared to multiples from Raamat and others.
