Hooligan: Make a pattern to fit where you want it out of something pliable, and drill the holes for the clips. Check out a thread called "interior panels" that's on the interiors bulletin board right now regarding making and attaching panels. I use Au-ve-co long offset clips, #10780. The best way to do this would be to take the trunk deck off and do it upside down. It would be a lot easier that way. Can you do that with your car? If you use 1/8" closed cell foam (landau top foam) to pad the panel, you might want to double up on the panel board so the clips don't show through the finished panel. In other words, the inside panel next to the trunk lid has the holes for the clips, and you put another layer on top of it, making it 1/4" thick. Good luck.
