After installing the front seat front seat for the passenger in the rear, time has come for the floor panel. Installing only one seat, I got a fairly large free space. However, it was necessary to add some improvements in order to be able to store cargo in a convenient way. I prepared a template from cardboard and I cut the plywood according to the pattern. I used spray adhesive and upholstery staples to attach the black automotive carpet to the board.

Finished panel is attached to the floor using cut L-shaped brackets and small hinges. It could be done in a better way, but I was in rush. As the result I got quite a long part of the flat surface, which can be successfully used for sleeping if such need arises.
