Short Description:  False floors baggage compartment

Again, lots of work but few logs. During the virus period, I've been working on several things, the most time consuming being false floors, that create compartments for oxygen, tools, etc. in the baggage area. There are no plans for this project, but I have looked at lots of photos, for this is apparently a pretty popular mod. Not wanting to spend $500+ for pre-made honeycomb panels, I made my own with e-glass and foam. That's not too hard, and as long as I'm not hauling concrete blocks, they will be easily strong enough for golf clubs, overnight bags, etc.

The trick was getting all the various pieces to sit on the same plane, with a strong ledger along the edges to support the panels. Both panels lift away from the baggage door for convenient access if necessary. I now do have latches, but will not install them until I have upholstery samples to make sure that the strike plate is positioned properly.

I probably have more than forty hours in this effort, but am only logging 24.
