    False Floors

    How exactly are false floors made? I was considering doing this as an install option instead of a box for my blazer. Thanks in advance.

    depends, usually they are simply a piece of wood cut out in the shape of the area you are covering up so it looks like it is the floor, but their is stuff under it, they are not a substitute for a box, but they can be combinded with a box like in the back of a hatch to make for a nice clean install..

    Re: False Floors

    Okay....so let's say for a blazer....I would build the box....then cover it with a huge piece of wood to make it look like the floor...and the false floor would just end up lookin like one huge box anyways cause you would have to extend a piece to the floor so you couldn't see underneath it

    Yeah basically, its kinda supposed to look like one huge box built into the car.
    False floors are more traditionally used to hide amplifiers though, nobody will mistake a huge built in box for a floor

    Re: False Floors

    all i used was regular black car paint that was sprayed with a spray gun and used metal flakes in the first layer of clear and then sprayed another layer of clear on top of that with out flakes. no fiberglass was used just mdf and alot of sanding. also do u have a pic of how u want your amps mounted in the false floor cuz i could give you a help with that.

    Re: False Floors

    You could do like I did in my explorer. Cut out the cargo area,and weld in an eigth inch steel tub. This will give you the best possible falce floor. The only broblem that I have with mine is that My new sub needs such a large box that there is no way I could mount it in the tub that I have built. But I am going to install my batterys and amps in there instead.
