Moding up the trunk

Got bored so I decided to try my hand at making a trunk kit. Very time consuming so far, but gonna be worth it. Thinking I am going to use black carpet since I'm leaving the black trunk mat in. Also going to add doors to the sides and move the battery into one if it will fit. Already ordered a 4ft white led to mount along the back and wire into the factory trunk light. Thinking about adding some red ones for show and in the storage area. A cover for the trunk lid is in the future as well. These are all just held in by pressure so far. I will look for a few places to mount with hardware once the carpets on. Let me know what ya think or if ya got any ideas.

Started with some cardboard to get a ruff idea. Still had to make adjustments 3 or 4 times.

Thanks guys. This car is my addiction. I just can't help but work on it. After looking at the pics for awhile and sleeping on it I have a few more ideas. I am trying to think of something to use for a tire cover that is plastic and can be painted. I'm wondering if a plastic 50gal drum would be large enough? I want to mount it the the board on the back. That will take a little more thinking and searching for something to use.
Thanks 1phastss for the links! Got some great ideas for how to secure it all down.

Couple of great links from Phastss. These have some great ideas for mounting. Big help for me and anyone else thinking of tackling this. I have not got any further on my yet due to workin 11hr days. Plus I think my battery my be dying which would be alright with me. Then I could get an Optima and mount wherever I want.

trunk

for making the round pc use card board as a base and then cover with matt fiberglass. (sears sells a repair kit with enough glass and resin to do it.Then put a light coat of bondo,
sand ,prime and paint or cover with carpet.It is amazing what shapes you can make this way.
Enjoy the build Skip
