    And here is how I get perfectly fitting panels every time.




    There will be a raised section on the middle and right panels, as well. Also, the cutout in the center is not the size of the window, rather the opening for my plexi. There will be a raised piece molded into the center panel with a smaller window.

    About to finish up the trunk panels. Things are really starting to come together.

    Thanks, man. This is really a no-frills SQ install, but that does not mean it can't be pretty!

    Re: Team Hybrids Jetta build

    Thanks, everyone. I really think the covering on these panels is going to set the trunk off. I have several slow days starting tomorrow, so I fully expect to get the amprack and panels finished. However, the trunk won't be completely finished until I build my IB baffle below the rear deck. The subs are not even out yet--should be another 60 days or so on those.

    This looks really good. What type of fabric do you use and where do you buy it?

    Re: Team Hybrids Jetta build

    I wanted to retain my spare time and I actually wanted to be able to get to it. I went from fully assembled to this in about 5 minutes using nothing but a drill and #2 Phillip bit. If I used a screwdriver, it would have taken me 10.

    And this is why it needed to come out.

    I used this stuff on the inside.

    All back together with the LEDs about to go in.

    Putting it back together--this took slightly longer than taking it apart.

    Result

    Re: Team Hybrids Jetta build

    Got the trunk panels covered, so I'll start out with some finished pics.


    This is the covering material. I really don't understand why people go with vinyl. A high quality vinal costs nearly as much as leather, so why not just go with the real thing?

    I covered the center panel last and the last thing I needed to do was gap the back of the panel. This is what I had to do to make sure I compensated for material thickness. I needed to be sure that this part comes out with ease for tuning.

    Respect the gaps, or lack thereof!

    Thanks! The IB sub baffle is still to come, so the look of the trunk will change a bit, but I am really pleased with how it has turned out.
