I'm looking for ideas to spruce up my bare metal trunk. I'm not keen on dropping 500 bucks for the plastic and fabric MTF kit, so I'll make my own. No tire in there for me =)
BTW, anybody have suggestions of what carpet to use?
I'm thinking plywood core panels wrapped in carpet ... unless you have better ideas?
Any tutorials / pointers / tips are very appreciated!

Here's mine. I built a wood frame to protect the top of my EFI fuel tank and to level the floor. I fitted that with a 1/4" plywood floor to which I glued some black carpet. Easy and cheap.

This is exactly what I'm considering doing. Does it rattle and bang?
Note that there are 8 upholstery screws. The "inner" 4 secure the three floor pieces to each other and to the frame underneath. The "outer" 4 secure new floor to the trunk utilizing the existing holes that the old fiberboard panels attached to. It doesn't rattle at all.

Here is the design of the frame underneath.
