    i threw some wood, some fibreglass and some filler into a boot and then lobbed some vinyl at it and it turned out like this midway, more pics to follow ;)

    i hate screws showing in a build so i am using all my cunning tricks to hide them ;) like the light, pop it out and there is a piece of strip bracket with a screw fixing it to the side, the boot has to be returned to standard so minimal damage to trim etc, it is in the handle to remove the side trim for that one so its in a recess :)

    Does she know youve done this?

    Im a sucker for a nice install, but in my old age I need my boot for boring sh1t like shopping and bodies.

    Looks like some nice work gone into that mate, you do it for a living?

    Floor is done now! :)
    Had to make the floor out of two pieces, but the two don't fit perfectly and that is what i'm after, no half measures for this one, but i found this out after i had trimmed it! :( redo for the floor in the near future me thinks ;) Audi logo turned out pretty well though :D

    Nicely done. I've not done a proper install for years.

    Definately a nicer job than my A4 with a factory box slung in the boot with a pair of Kicker 12's in it. lol. Can't do anything nice with mine as the wife puts horse stuff in there all the time and I've got work stuff I need to ferry about
