haha not for work - accountants don't use too many hand tools :P

its jumper leads, socket set, screwdriver set, and other assorted hand tools etc. so nothing too major, but will need a few inches of height to clear them all - perhaps hinge them off the raise at the rear of the boot?


1 question do u have subs in the boot???

See what i might think of doing is not putting in a false floor is to put in a false wall...... If you dont have enough room for the tools etc... is to make up the flase floor.... Then what you can do is also take the thing i said in the last post and then just place it next to it...

See the bottom thing i think it comes down to is on how crafty you want to get...

its a single 12" sub, & 2 channel MTX amp. i'm open to ideas about where to place both, however i was going to just place the amp on the raised section behind the seats, and the sub at the back of the boot - i guess how most people do! i have a box for the sub already, so was looking to hide everything else, but still keep the boot practical & have enough space to use it daily :wink:

Pending how THICK the amp is, you might be able to fit it on the support in the boot uinder the c-pillar and the boot arm will nicely clear past it, and keeps it well out of the way, I have mine mounted there, and a small sub box in the back right of my boot (not the filler side) so I have full boot access at all times.

i can't fit all my tools in the spare wheel well i can tell you that much mitch!

dellboy - the amp is a pretty compact one, so i'm assuming it'll fit there? :? lol i'm not too sure where you're referring too exactly though i'm afraid!

If you look when you close the boot and watch how the boot arm swings down, there is a fair amount of space bewteen it and the part I am talking about, have a look, it should make sense.

another place to put the amp is under the drivers seat, that is where mine is, and i dont have any heat issues. although i will still be hooking a fan back up in the next few weeks anyway.
