71 Nova trunk board and carpet

heres a simple trunk board I made for a 71 nova, put carpet in the trunk and on the board I used closed cell foam and did the bowtie cutout, added some lil chrome accents, black stripes and a new Nova emblem the owner had, he was thrilled with the outcome...... also installed his headliner, turned out great also

Thanks dude !!!! but yes, you can..... I do all the building of all my stuff and alot of other peoples stuff, and all this takes is a scrap piece of plywood or osb a yard of vinyl and a yard of closed cell foam some glue and a staple gun...... dont have to sew anything...... draw it out, keep it simple and go for it !!!! even if you mess up you havent wasted maybe 10 bucks worth of vinyl..... use cardboard to make a template for the wood and give it a try....... I have to remind myself of this rule ALOT....lol.....
K.I.S.S. = Keep It Simple Sir or in my case, keep it simple stupid! cause I catch myself going OVERBOARD on stuff alot........lol.... when most of the time, simple works best and is wayyyyyyyy easier.

I sure hope you're creating that stuff for show cars...if not, you're wasting your talent. You made it sound so easy I'm actually going to try and make a bed cover for my S15 with the direction you gave me. Just not sure how you get the design onto the cell foam. Any tips?

Here's another way to do it. This is done basically the same way but has a contrasting color for the bowtie, and the bowtie is embedded in the package shelf. This is in a '53 Chevy.

I also did a black bowtie dan, but my sister came by and she was like me, she liked the recessed bowtie and just the black stripes, so thats what we went with, but dans right, it would good with a different colored bowtie, makes it look embossed too...... I have one in my chevelle that the board is black, with red stripes and a red bowtie, but the bowtie is made of plywood and just wrapped and screwed in from the back and the red stripes were sewn in

Dan, Thats sweet too. I'm going to try it myself. You guys make it sound easy enough, but I'll bet it'll take me a little practice to get it right. Lots of areas to practice on though...but if I can get it right it will certainly add value to my ride. Thanks for the great tips.
