Idea for the trunk

I am thinking about putting a plywood trunk cover in my trunk, under the carpet to give it a more solid load floor instead of having one with the spare tire cover, anyone else thought of this one? Probably going to require it be in 2 pieces to install it. Your thoughts and opinions are welcome.

^^ vv Fixed ;)


I'm asking: Why? If you have spare tire under that oem thin wood cover you can still put something heavy and it wont fall or something? Unless you don't have spare, then I see the point.

I'm looking to do this too because that rear carpet and my speaker box slides all over the place.

I would do the ply wood and carpet the plywood with that speaker box carpet and spray adhesive.

I was thinking plywood under the carpet, so it looks normal and is light weight, just has a flatter floor on it.

There was someone who created a box for a full size SVT 5 spoke wheel. Actually looked pretty cool. See if I can find it...

i took a piece of dimond plate and cut it up to fit back there in place of the cheapo flimsy trunk bottom...i got a full sheet of dimond plate for free so it didn't even cost me a dime! :)
