false floor

  1.2 16v (Race Spec)

I want to take my back seats out and create a false floor thats level from the boot to just behind the front seats, then cover it in carpet.

How do I go about this please?

basically with a lot of trial and error mate

buy a sheet of MDF big enough, then its a case of cuttin bits off here and there, tryin it, then cut more off etc, until you get it right

if you want it raised just buy some cheap planks of wood and use those

how would you hold it up? It needs to be supported by something doesnt it? Where am I likely to get the carpet from?


yeah i was thinkin about doin this aswell, but how would a set of harnesses get attached? how much would the mdf and carpet cost? anyone know?

MDF £5 per sheet , carpet about £10 per SQ m see for vinyl and carpet

Use your boot carpet as a template for the bootsection

Make it in 2 bits so you can fit it in and out of the car

Mega easy to scratch your interior though

I will post a pic of mine when its carpeted

What thickness of mdf should I use if I was going to do a false floor in the boot and screw a sub box to it? Want it to be strong but not too heavy!
