hey guys, first to answer a few questions....

before i put the fibreglass on i just covered the area with masking tape, to prtect the cars suface so i doesnt get resin and s**t al over it, but the sub boxes are made from layers of resin, fg matting, core mat, fg matting, and lastly resin again

as for fixing the base down, all the flooring is fixed to one major support beam (basically a chuck of pine exactly the same as those in ur house roofing trusses), and that is fixed to the wheel arches by the use of metal brackets u can find at bunnings in the builders hardware section (tere should be an area in the isle full of a load of red boxes filled with different shaped brackets....)

as for being legal, so far i cant see a prob with it, cos everthing is still accessible cos everything moves to get to andthing it may be covering...ie, the floor is hinged and held up by struts to get the tyre out, all the side panelling will be clipped into place to make brakelight bulb changing nice and easy etc...

anyway...heres some more pics for u to keeps tabs on...

good old floor framing with the new floor locking mech and support strut getting a test to make sure they work as planned....and they do... :)

well.....all the fg has been trimmed up to size.....so happy i wore long pants and a jacket at the time......hardly itched at all...

anyway..so i didnt also hae to sand the s**t to get it ready for painting, on goes the car filler (so it can get sanded instead)....

only sideaffect, looks like i just drove thru a snow storm....and so did the outside of the car until i washed it......HAHA

im still a little way from the surface being ready for painting, but u guys get the idea....

I got a legalities question for ya.

When I get back to Australia I'm looking to do something similar, but how does the police, Road worthy and spare tyre fit together when you've created a fake floor covering it?

For road worthy, you need the spare tyre in the boot, but what if you physically can't easily access it?

Install looks good though :)


a car does not need to have a spare tyre, although if there is one present it must be secured accordingly as to not cause further damage in the event of an crash.

I know it's been a while - so does anyone know what happened to this install?

It was looking so sweet - I'm sure we all wanted to see the rest?

I reckon, i LOVE the idea of using struts and that on the false floor, rather than have it in the way while trying to access the tyre! That and the boot catch to secure it down. very nice indeed. But yeah, final pictures would be great!

as for getting rid of the headlight protectors, i dont think so, i know not everyone likes the look of em but id rather them on it that losing a headlight from a stone, already lost 2 others :(
