You can measure the volume of the enclosure using packing peanuts. Fill the enclosure with peanuts and then, transfer the peanuts into cardboard boxes of known volume to get the actual enclosure volume. A 12"x12"x12" cardboard box = 1 cubic foot. The rest is easy.

I can't wait to see the finished box!

You can use strips of soft rubber under and behind the enclosure to decouple(isolate) it from the body of the car. I am giving up old tricks here!
