I have done an in care IB set-up and I would encourage anyone who wants the best bass money can buy to do the same.
I'm using an NOS pair of Focal designed specifically for IB use and couldn't be happier.
No punching extra holes or cutting of any sheet metal, just blocked off the opening between rear seats and trunk with a 1" MDF baffle. The only holes I had to block were the the openings for the 6x9" original speakers on the rear deck.
The result... effortless bass as deep as you can have and very subtle at the same time.
Don't get to caught up in sealing small cracks and damping the trunk. It's not needed.
Just do it!
You wont be sorry!

Nice set up. I have two 12's in my car in a band pass enclosure and I get nice bass but would it be a big improvement to go IB or would it be not enough jump to justify the cost ?

Justify the cost? Just get a scrap piece of mdf cut out a baffle and judge for yourself. Might cost you $10 and your time. If you like it, it may cost you a few more bucks to make it pretty with carpet
Try it!

I guess it sounds easy enough but I thought I would need to do more customizing to make it work in the trunk of my sedan but I will take a look at it and see what it would take to make it look good.

They are a couple of older Elemental desiegn subs that they had on a clearance and are just good enough as I don't spend alot of time in the car. I only work about 2 miles from my home so no commute to speak of.

Good IB subs for not a lot of money? Check the Exodus DPL line from diycable.com

Yeah this used to be very common back in the early 90's but we called it free air. Most guys didn't even use a baffle they just mounted to the rear deck or the frame of the back seat.
