    Default Trunk upholstery

    After admiring other people’s trunks, I’ve decided to do my own. Bought the plans from Alien Enclosures and started the process a couple of weeks ago. Principally finished today and am quite pleased.

    Cut the bottom out of ¾” plywood and the sides are ¼”

    Assembled the pieces outside the trunk, as they are self supporting.

    A bit of cutting and adjusting was needed to fit the assembly in my trunk area.

    Upholstered with ¼” foam and red perforated vinyl. Inserts are 1/32” carbon fiber sheets on ⅛” plywood backer.

    Sure took space out of your trunk though.

    Carl, Agreed on the reduction in apparent space; however, the panels are readily removable (velcro holds the panels in place) and storage is available behind the panels on each end and behind the rear seat. I have a trunk mounted battery setup behind the passenger side of the rear seat, which is hidden by the new trunk panels.

    All of it looks really good. I did something similar in my Camaro. I also used the velcro to hold the panels on. I can get to the back of mine easily as well. I also have a bottom panel that covers the "trap" door to the top of my gas tank if I need to do work on it without having to drop the tank. Good job on yours!

    $87.35 with shipping. Couldn't have been much easier. Just cut out the patterns, trace around them on your plywood, and cut out the panels using your jig saw. A minor amount of adjusting on each panel was necessary to get the best fit. I still have my plans. Sell them to you for half price if you're interested.
