New Trunk Floor

Just finished installing my new trunk floor. I had seen the how to for a solid floor which gave me this idea. I used a sheet 7/16 OSB as it was about the thickest i could go with and still have clearance for my subs. I traced around the old mat and then cut it out with a jigsaw. I also cut out an opening above the spare tire / battery area and cut the remained in half. I sanded the edges and wrapped the pieces with a black vinyl attaching it with staples to the underside.

To do my access panel I screwed on a couple of flat piece of metal to the bottom of the side boards and then grinded off any part that stuck threw with a dremel so it was flat on the top side. I have 6 of them install around the edges to hold the access panel in place. I did this before I covered the wood so that nothing would show

Thanks. It's not real leather. Its black vinyl that has a little padding backing. I used about 2 yards of fabric.

The cost is very little to make one as long as you have all the tools. Materials were not very costly but I did have to get some new tools. I found a B&D Jigsaw for $20, sandpaper was around $3 for 5 discs, Dremel grinding wheel $5 for 5, and my stapler crapped out so i needed a new one of those which was $17. Tool cost was about $45 but it is all stuff I will get much use out of. Materials for this project cost me about $22 so as stated above if you have all the tools its a pretty low cost thing to do.

TOOLS
Jigsaw
Orbital Sander w/ 80 grit paper
Dremel w/ Grinding Wheel
Screw Driver
Stapler (not the swingline kind lol)

MATERIALS
7/16 OSB Sheet - $9
6 3" Mending Plates w/ screws - $3
Vinyl Material - Normally $20 but had 50% off coupon = $10
