I believe it also has something to do with the parcel shelf being the mounting point for a seatbelt (middle one)..

Question...what are the holes for? Look like aaammm....speaker ports...but they couldnt be...cos theyd just be porting to the metal parcel shelf?

Im confuzzled

Otherwise, looks tops! Need like an emboridered FORD logo in the middle and itd be sweet as!


The holes are gopng into the boot because they lead directly to the pre-cut factory speakers holes.

Cheers

So dMAC you feel like going into business and making these. As i for one would be interested, as i hate the look from the s**t speaker spacers with my 6x9's. That looks almost factory, i like what you have done alot.

Top job very impressive. Good example of what can be done for only a little cost but a LOT of time.

Pitty you can't do something similar in a wagon!

Cheers - Matt.

I have been making my custom parcel shelf over the past few days. I made a custom shelf because i wanted the pre-cut speaker holes open so i could have more bass in the car. I am gonna write this as a tute thing because i want to explain the pics.

Okay I started off removing the material that was on the parcel shelf which entailed the removal of the bottom of the rear seat, the side things on the 60/40 part of the seat, the plastic on the C frame and the speakers.

Then i got some 3mm MDF and got the shape of the parcel shelf by using the removed carpet and grease proof paper (for tracing the outline of the carpet). As you see below.

[img]http://pic17.picturetrail.com/VOL846/3739279/7713600/101486385.jpg
[/img]

Then I placed the speaker where i wanted it.
Image

The speaker looks high here, however this is the base level of MDF, there is three levels in total.

As you can see in the next pic which has the third level(the highest) the speakers sits just above the MDF, this was fixed later on with some 3mm MDF glued under the legs of the speaker support(12mm MDF).
Image

This photo below shows the shelf from above with the holes going into the boot and still only the bottom and top level.
Image

The following picture now has the middle level as well which was added in held up by some 18mm hard wood i found in the shed. Also you will see some little steps made out of wood. This was done with four layers of 3mm MDF stuck together and angled back. I did the steps so that when it came time for bog it was easier and more cost effective. Also at the back of the shelf you will see Expanda foam which i went a little overboard with but i had never used it before and didn't know how much it would expand. Also you will see the steps go over the two inner holes which i want going into the boot. I cut them out using a jigsaw later on.

Image

Okay in the folloowing pic you will see i went to work with bog and some more expanda foam on the inside of the shelf. The expanda foam you will see between the two levels for deadening so i dont get any echo. Also in the pics below i wanted to show you the actual height between the levels. Also in the pics you will see that i stuck rings around the two inner holes because it will be easier for me to stick the vinyl over the edges and in the dips. Also because in the previous picture the exapanda foam expanded too much i had to cut it back on the back of the shelf.

Image
Image
Image

Alright after the bog had dried it was time to sand then refill then sand again.

Image

Image

Once i had sanded all that i could and my hands were stuffed it was time to stick the underlay on. I stuck the underlay on first as i thought i needed to be flipped over and therefore if the vinyl was on, it would get stratched. The blue rubber matting in pics is the underlay which i used to stop viration noises from wood hitting metal.

Image

After i stuck the underlay on i checked that it still had clearance from the window as it was raised by 5mm by the rubber.

Image

Image

After all was clear it was time to stick the vinyl on as it was one of the last things left to do. I used contact adhesive to stick the vinyl on. I was lucky i didn't get any vinyl that group together around the curves otherwise it wouldn't have looked too good.

Image

Image

Image

After it still all fit i then had to cut some holes in the vinyl and then wack the speakers in. The finished product:

Image

Image

There you go fellas. I would like to thank my dad for helping me with the final stages of sticking rubber and vinyl down.

The TOTAL COST

MDF - $15
Expanda Foam - $18
Vinyl - $7.50
Car Filler (BOG) - $19
Contact Adhesive - $14
Rubber matting - $24

Comes to $97.50

I think it was well worth it.

You reckon someone could make this a doco.

Cheers

What a lovely lot of RED CROSSES :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:
