Noise Dampening with Rear Seat Delete

For anyone that has done the rear seat delete, what if anything did you do to dampen the noise from the rear. It probably won't matter much once I am at the track and I have my helmet on, but man it's friggin noisy just tooling around.

bad ass. i feel you on the noise level. i get grumpy when I have the rear seats folded down. i think my racing cats are part to blame, but those seats provide a lot of road noise insulation from the rear of the car.

Just a simple block off panel helps with the sound but not much. Fall line sells sheets of carbon that you can cut to work or you can make something.
