In the "backseat" area of my car, instead of a seat, there is a moldy warped piece of particle board covering an empty area of the car body and chassis. Today, I finally got around to making a decent replacement.
This is the empty area. Normally a seat (and I use that word in the loosest sense of the word) would be present on top of this open area.
My car didn't have a seat, it had crappy particle board that I pitched into the rubbish bin.
Time to get to work!
Whoa! Cool your jets, bub! Before I can get to work, I need to be able to rock out.
This antique chamber pot made a great resonating chamber for my less than stellar ZTE "Open".
No. I didn't listen to chamber music.
Sweet Skate Ramp
Remember the old adage "measure twice, cut once"?
A certain Jezra who will not be named didn't heed that advice and had to adjust his so called "design" midway through the project. Actually, having two separate pieces makes it easier to do what I want to do. Winning!
Once Piece In
The ends with the 2x4 screwed to them go towards the center of the vehicle and the end of the cover fits nicely into a little groove in the body.
In one of the empty areas, I will be storing my mini 2-ton floor jack. BOOYAH! Ideally, I will have a spare set of tools stored in that empty area as well.
Both Covers On
Wow, what a boring picture.
The fit is quite nice, and it feels pretty solid.
That's about it. Both pieces are in and the interior carpet fits over the covers perfectly.
That bottle of motor oil should probably go into the new storage area.
Hold on a second! Won't that wood get wet and rot like the old particle board cover?
Nope. Thanks to the help of my buddy, the leaky seal on my rear window has been replaced.
Now quit reading, and go build something out of wood.... or fix your car.
