    trying a boot build

    ive got an idea of a bootbuild, but to be honest dont have a clue on how i am going to build it as i still want access to my spare wheel.
    My plan was to build a false floor a back wall and 2 side walls, in the back wall i was goin to have my sub, side walls were going to have to bits of perspex in them with neons behind them and 1 with the amp behind it. so if you have any ideas of how i could go about doing this then plz help, also tell me what you think of my idea cheers.

    First of all put some battons down for putting a false floor on.
    Cut out an area and hinge it so you can access your spare.

    Then build and secure side frames/boxes on the false floor.
    As for the sub in the back wall, you'll have have that secure and removeable so you still get access to the spare.

    Have a look for installs to get an idea.

    I have seen a lot of people at the place where I go for my stuff, Source Sounds in Sheffield, build the sub into the left hand side side wall as you look into the boot as its more flat and more room around spare wheel. Then the amp/s in eithe the right hand side wall ou on the back of the seats with a false floor for acess to the spare wheel. Will look mint if done right, would do one like in my pug but sadly don't havr the time or cash now!!!

    Any help?

    cheers guys its a bit of help yet its trying to get all the measurements right aswell, but the other thing aswell is that il still need access to the light comparments aswell, so is that just a case of putting small doors in aswell.

    You wont need regular access to the light cluster, so as long as you can take your side build apart, then it will still work well.

    As for the floor, copy the shape of the carpet for an easty template start

    If you're concerned about having to do it twice, use cardboard as a template...
