Well, I think it looks great, but here in the southeastern united states, the wood would be a problem.

Since my trunk has the fold down for the rear seat, making my trunk look better would be an interesting idea esp since I want to relocate the battery back there.

The raised floor and encased lights do look good, hopefully I won't start another project just yet (though I am now thinking about some honeycomb composite/aluminum panels I ran across several years ago . . .

"I love my Hookers!" and "Get some Strange" probably have a different connotation to non automotive enthusiasts!

Hi Jeff,

Thanks for your feedback. I'm glad you like what i've done.Regards timber;I live in a tropical climate here in Oz, and timbers are prone to play up here.

I chose a top quality pine for the skeleton framework, and a top quality plyboard (not marine ply) for the panelling. Using timber for this project was the most practical/ cost effective way to go. I'm hoping the timber will not play up in any regard, and be all right into the future.Choosing alternative materials would have been harder to source and more expensive for sure.Why would timber be problem where you live for example?

Dimension wise, my design can be customised to suit your personal requirments in regards the finished product.

Thanks again Jeff,

Greg.Smile

Greg, think DarwinSmile While not tropical, Tennessee can be extremely humid for long periods of time. It's worse than Brisbane I can tell you that for sure.

Anyway I don't see why one couldn't use some form of plastic like plexiglass or ABS if one were worried about moisture.

Well done Greg, it really does look excellent. I have small dents in my drivers rear quarter from not being careful with chairs and such in the back.

Thanks again Greg, and i'm pleased you like what i've done. As you say, a really humid climate could cause probs with the timber. I didn't consider the materials you have suggested, but they would be worth looking into as an alternative.

Regards qtr dents, yes that happens of course, which led me to design the walls the way i did. I was toying with the idea of incorporating purpose designed cavity box storage into the walls on both sides as well. You would have doors that would open left to right or dropdown design, and would have the same carpet finish to blend in, giving extra storage space. I left that plan alone for now as it represented too much work and time for the project.

Cheers.
