Trunk Panels

 

Quick project to pass the time.  Both my cars did not have any trunk panels so I decided to make them.  My mistake was to ask a fellow Lotus owner for his set to copy, which he swore was OEM.  Once looking at them, I didn't think so, looked like a 12 year old cut them out with a hack saw.  But I still copied them with modifications to make them fit and look better.

 

 

Of course after I had finished the project I find out that there shold only be one panel over the spare, a cardboard spacer over the gas tank, a small wedge of wood in the far right corner, and a vinyl carpet laid over the entire trunk.  Oh well, a project for another day.  But this is what it should look like.
