Hang in there.
I have started removing panels and adding in Dynamat. Stuck to the panels.

Okay, but 1990's Civics go over potholes also and don't have rattles after 180,000 miles ...

Don't feel that way. I got a second opinion from a 2nd dealer and they fixed my rattle in 24 hours. Ride tech identified the problem within 3 minutes, said the would look into it and had me back into the car problem free the next day. My instrument cluster rattle was every 2000-2200 rpms it was awful. Don't give up.

Good idea! I've actually heard of custom builders doing this to every panel upon installation to prevent any rattles down the road.
