I have designed my false floor, more or less. The design may change slightly but it's pretty much as seen in the pictures. I am going to do it in two pieces the bottom and sides as one piece and the top as a separate piece. It will be 31" x 41" with two sides closed off for support and the other two open to let air move through to vent the amps. There will also be a support in the center with a opening to allow wires through. On the left hand side toward my rear hatch will be a 12 x 7 cutout for my battery.

My main question is, how would I attach the top. I don't want to screw it down because I want to be able to easily get into the amps and make adjustments.

Also, is there enough support or should I add a little to the open sides?

Any other suggestions?

Excuse the pics, I am not great with sketch-up but it works.

As far as securing the top, velcro and/or hinges are easy enough. With velcro lining the perimeter, good luck having it move without intention.

Will hinges cause vibrations and will velcro be strong enough to hold it?

Are they hidden/invisible?
