This was my Fiero project for the day. I always carry my tools and spare parts with me. I decided I needed to get a little more organized and make everything look better. I recently cleaned the trunk carpet as per the instructions in the How-To forum.
Building on that momemtum, I wanted to clean up the look of my trunk while it had all my junk in it. I went to Target and got two plastic containers to hold stuff. They were just a few bucks a piece. I wanted one to hold my paper towels, funnell, hand wipes, battery wrench, flashlight, tire gauge, and other frequently used tools.
I used the other one to hold all my sockets and wrenches.
I only have the sockets that I use on the Fiero in there and I put them on storage rails that I got from China Freight. I grouped them and then I cut the rails to size. It's a pretty handy set-up.
I also have a small cardboard box that holds an assortment of spare parts. There's a coil, a MAPP sensor, a selection of lightbulbs, an ICM, etc.
All three fit in the bottom of the trunk very well. There is just enough room to open the latches for the lids without having to take the tool boxes out.
The two plastic boxes make a nice, level resting place for a shelf.
I went to Home Depot and bought a 2'x 4' piece of board. Can't remember what the material is called. Hardboard, fiber board, or something like that. It is like what you might find on the back of a stereo cabinet or like pegboard but without the holes. It was about $5.50 for the sheet.
I made a paper pattern out of poster board. I made it fit while sitting on top of the two plastic boxes.
Then I used the pattern to trace the outline on my stereo board sheet with a sharpie. I used my hand-held jig saw to cut the shelf out.
After I cut it out, I did a test fit in the trunk on top of the plastic boxes.
I had some carpet material left over from covering my front trunk so I used that to cover the board. I attached it with a staple gun.
I'm happy with it. What do you think?
