    Progress has been slow thanks to a busy work schedule, but I'm still moving towards completion.

    I realized the stock foam has a lip along the rear edge to help retain the carpeted floor, so I glued down a 1/4" square dowel to provide a stop as well.

    I cut this picture frame arrangement for one of the two cover panels. There's going to be metal mesh inside the frame, and magnets in the corners that will secure it. This will provide support under the trunk floor so it doesn't collapse into the large storage area.

    I didn't take any pictures but I also added quite a lot of dowels to the storage box. Everything was simple butt joints before while I was getting the layout nailed, but particularly in a hot cabin those are not going to be strong joints. Dowels through most of the major pieces should provide a lot of added strength and stability.

    It's been quiet but I have been making some good progress. I've updated the beginning of the thread with some pictures and updates.

    See pics at the top of the thread for details, but there's a steel bar embedded in these panels because they're weight bearing. Should be able to tolerate quite a lot of load.

    Gonna finish up the bottom panel now, and then I have to deal with upholstering the storage section which I'm dreading.
