How do you mount a wall for the trunk to cover up the back section. To hide the cyclinder and hoses?

im guessing your talking about the luggage rack...if you want to go cheap make it out of cardboard and just put some material on it that matches your trunk floor....mount it with some velcro and make sure you cut holes for the hinges ...if you do it right you could do it very cheap and make it look nice...if you dont want cardboard i would say use 1/2'' mdf and basically do the same process with velcro...also look for the plastic tough velcro...both sides are like little knobs instead of hook and loop

i suppose you could but i was just pointing out something that would be easier...the velcro i pointed out would keep the material still because its some tough shit..and if the panels are pretty light it shouldnt have a problem at all...the reason i say use the strong velcro is because its easy to apply and you could access your cylinders/batteries or whatever without having to make any brackets or unscrew anything....also with something flexible you could put angles into it without every having to worry about cutting anything

I have a wall mounted in the back of my towncar that hides my cylinders, and doubles as an amp rack. i made it out of wood, and their are no screws or velcro that holds it in place. i cut it so that it just slides in, and once it's in it doesnt move an inch.....but it's tricky to get back out. i covered it in black vinal screwed my amp and crossover to it, then drilled holes in it so my wires go into the board and out the back. NO WIRES ARE VISIBLE!

i';ll take some pics when i get off work in the morning, i have this one but you can just barley see it. ;)

I made one in my Impala and put a mirror in it, I screwed for 2x2's to teh trunk and top and then screwed my cover to that I put 4 wood screws in it with button covers and it looked nice just had to un-screw the screws to get to my rear cylinders, subs(8's) and amp
