W114 trunk insulation

Hi,
I have just finished installing b-quiet sound deadening and on top b-quiet hliner
Combination of both are used to reduce heat, noise and vibration.
Trunk feels solid now and it should help when I install sub later
Before:

The h-liner is a BAD idea! The problem with the foam insulators is that they will absorb and store moisture. While this isn't a problem for engine compartment/firewall applications due to them being vented to the outside air, it IS a problem in a sealed area such as the trunk. They'll mildew and begin to stink.

Use one of the thinner "bubble" type pads for trunk and interior applications. These are sealed cells and don't collect moisture.

Agreed buy that is why I put the b-quiet extreme before adding the hliner so the moisture if collected doesn't stay on the metal

It won't prevent the "stank".

If it does what you say it will do it is easily removable

And a dilute bleach/water mix will take care of stank, if it happens.

Where would the water come from? If the drain gunnels leak, the water will go to the floor of the trunk and collect in the low spots, not in the foam. Are we talking condensation here? Normal humidity?

In my opinion it should be absolutely fine
I have zero moisture in the trunk it is dry as a bone with no leaks or rust
