jbowling actually i was able to find somewhat of a decent full view of the trunk for the caymen. the second photo is of a center console we built in a 66 chevelle. again, we did a huge stereo in this one. we actually hid 2 6 inch subwoofers in the center console. they sound absolutely incredible for such small subwoofers.

but sorry for all the rambling. just thought id share a little bit of the work weve done here recently

jbowling if somebody can tell me how to post pictures ill throw up some of the work ive done

jbowling for kick panels i always hide screws and will occasionaly use velcro like what was posted in the picture above. as for trunk build outs, maybe one panel will have hidden screws, the rest are all pressure fit. that way they stay where they need to, look clean, and can be easily removed if need be. thats the best way to do it i feel. but to each their own!

John long Sorry to be so inept at posting photos. Here is a shot of the back of the panel.

John long Having trouble down loading photos. Here is a better shot of installed panel

John long Here are a couple of pictures of my kick panel. The rumble seat hinge makes showing the trunk panel difficult. I personally do not care for screw heads showing but that is purely personal taste.

35WINDOW John is absolutely correct-on my build, I kind of lost my mind, made them from 6061T6 Aluminum and installed them using Dzus fasteners to make them easy to take out (as my Fuel Sender/Fuel Pump can only be accessed through the Floor-you can see some of the crappy pictures I took in my Journal)-

Anyway, there are lots of choices of materials and attachment methods (your imagination is your only boundary), depending on your needs to access wiring, etc.-

John long There is no right or wrong way but I like to make some tabs that I can use a heavy duty Velcro on. It will hold a panel tightly with no screws showing and make removal super easy. Works well for kick panels also.

trunk panels

Has anyone built trunk panels in a late 30s early 40s coupe? I can build the panels the question would be mounting them in there so they look and stay tight. Any tips would be great
