Silent boot mod...

Got a pic today of my latest boot addition. It's a toolbox used for holding bottles and tools, etc to stop em floating all over the car. Took an hour or so and a few coats of paint.



I know I am missing some of the boot surrounds, they are all there in the boot loose, and its incredibly dirty but you get that.

Re: Silent boot mod...

That's a great idea, i've been contemplating something similar for a while now but i'm not sure how to go about attaching it to the car so it wont rattle around.

Re: Silent boot mod...

Good idea, much better than my technique of swearing each time I hear thudding from the back.

Well there is plenty of room on the right hand side for making a noisy addition if I feel like it in the future :-)

I've been told the colour is bright and asked why paint it that colour. I mean its blue - why not paint it that colour? LOL..

Thanks for the replies guys. And best of all its not heavy to lift out in case of a flat. Doesn't move an inch either cos its a tight fit to the sunken part of the boot.
