How heavy is that? I realize fiberglass is lightweight, but there has to be a wood structure in the oval correct? You also have a fiberoptic? How heavy is the Impala emblem, what's it made from? Will the trunk stay open itself with the weight? I know alot of questions...

But it is fairly Kick Arse!!!

I used MDF. VERY Heavy. Need to reinforce the trunk metal that holds it up. I also have it with two actuators to open and close the trunk. I love it. Looks really trick and it hold all my amps and caps. Can't find any other pictures of it sorry.

I'm going to just make a trunk panel to cover the inside of the trunk lid since it'll clean the trunk up a bit being that i have sound deadener on it. What i'm doing is using foamboard from wal-mart, i'm using two pieces of 20" x 24" foamboard to total 20" x 48" ($6 total)along with Landau top and trim glue(can also use DAPP or TACC glue, all sprayed out of a gun via an air compressor). I'll be using the glue to add 1/2" batting(padding) to the board and then marine vinyl on top of that ($9). Since i already have the glue, the total cost with some nice chrome screws to hold it on will be about $20.

It's like a foamboard so i assume water would damage it but it will be wrapped all around in vinyl and attached to the lid of the trunk so it would be the last item in my trunk i'd be worried about getting wet. ;)
