    MKIV GTI - Custom Cargo Shelf

    I Recently came to the consensus that my amp and sub are exposed in the rear window ( car didnt come with cargo shelf) and i will soon be heading back to college so thus my car will be sitting in an open lot.


    So thus i decided to make my own cargo shelf (buying replacement part online or from VW is rediculously expensive).


    i also plan to integrate this shelf into my car computer, or something cool. idk what yet, but i shall find out. (will take suggestions)


    -= Without the Shelf =-


    -= With the Shelf =-


    -= Bottom of the Shelf =-


    -= The Dowel, held on by Rubber lined wire holders =-



    If its not broke, try and fix it.

    Looks good, so far. Do you plan to seal the wood so it doesn't absorb moisture? How will you finish it -- paint, vinyl, cloth, carpet?

    If just enough is really good, then too much ought to be perfect.

    Finished

    I actually decided to just carpet the board, because i realized how much i hate painting. so here's the final product.
