Back Seat Removal (the whole 9)

So I have removed my back seat and will be doing a piece to cover it up. Here is my question. I have also removed every panel in the rear (2door hatchback so no doors back there) and was wanting to do a full custom cover for the entire piece. I know how to do all the wood work/ carpeting but my questions is if there is a way to round the tops of the wood where it would meet the windows?

I would round then and then use L brackets to fasten the top from the inside and use them again on the bottom. Since they will be exposed on the bottom I plan on laying the bottoms piece over them to cover the brackets and just using regular black screw to fasten that piece down.

Once again, the only piece I am having a hard making is a rounded area toward the top, any tips would be appreciated.

Tough to do with wood, minus using a purfling piece and an oven. And lots of time.

Why do you want to replace all your interior trim with wood? The floor for a back seat delete I can understand, but patching the whole rear interior that way is gonna add a lot of weight to the rear...

Got a specific purpose in mind for it?

Seriously, you should use fiberglass for something like that.

My thought is you're doing this for a purpose. Are you hauling something? Looking for good acoustic qualities for a system? Give more details so we can help. =)

Soaking wood is also another way to get it to mold. But I mean A LOT of soaking.

You could do a wood wall and fg a piece to round out the top edge...

But why do that when it adds so much weight, unless you're just going for aesthetic reasons.

I ended up changing my mind on doing the whole trim, just need something to cover the areas that were carpeted right behind the hatch opening.Reasons for doing this is a incredible system, 4 12"s 2 facing each way with a custom built box, wanted to get rid of the carpet piece since it has the factory sub opening and match it with the carpet that I am using for the new delete as well as the boxes. I was thinking of doing wood going up and them small pieces of shaped foam/plastic/something on the top just to add a bit of a round look instead of it just cutting straight across.

Hah! Buy?

Go spend a few bux at Home Depot and make your own on the cheap. More rewarding, plus you can customize it with some Fatmat or similar on the bottom for better SPLs with your bass. Just look at the beginning of this board at "Back Seat Delete!" There's a complete how-to. =)
