Once you do that there is no turning back. Personally I would'nt do it unless you plan on hauling gravel back there.

You could insulate it with some upholstered panels and light automotive style carpeting. That would cut down on the road noise and look a little classier.

Another member on here recently Line X'd the underside of his car, that's something I wish I would have thought of when I had my body off the frame. It is the Ultimate undercoating!

This is Very waterproof...but...you need to know where the water is getting INTO the trunk....if it is coming through the rear window, you would just be sealing the water in the trunk. Eric

i found a couple holes in my trunk so i'm pretty sure it's coming from them. i'm still going to look around to make sure there isn't any other places. would you recommend me putting rhino line in my trunk or do you know of any better options?

I would not do it personally, I like the idea of the body underneath but not the trunk. Just my 2 cents why do you want a waterproof trunk?

If you have moisture in there already you surely don't want to trap it in there by encapsulating it. Clean it out thuroughly and blow out all the seams with compressed air then maybe seamsealer all the cracks and crevasses. I would then paint it with something like the trunk paint kit from Eastwood Products.

"Should I Rhino Line my trunk?"

NO. Not in my rather strong opinion! If I were ever looking to purchase a car and it was Rhino Lined, I would pass on it and find another car. The stuff is permanent and in my mind, inappropriate on cars. Off road trucks, yeah.
