69 Nova custom trunk panels

I want to create upholstered panels for the inside of my 69 Nova's trunk. I want to square off the trunk to not see the wheel wells or back of the rear seat, etc...

I assume I need to use cardboard, which shouldn't be too hard, but what about all the small details, like how to attach the pannels in place without seeing too many bolts or screws sticking out? Also, what to cover them with, etc.

I'm assuming someone will post a link to a good website showing me how to do it, which would be perfect

What I would use is 1/8" Luan plywood or Masonite. Attach it with Velcro so you have no screws and it can be easily removed for access to such things as battery, jack, or tools. You can cover it with tweed material or get real fancy and cover it with leather.
