    A false wall? Use some cardboard to get the template then cut the bish out. You may have to do it in 2 pieces so it'll fit into the trunk...

    you can get really strong *** velcro strips that will easily hold that in place.

    I prefer hardboard for facades...little bit lighter, it's not used for structural support.

    In NY/NJ? Need basic install work done? Inquire for prices.
