I'm kinda doing the same thing; working on the trunk.
Putting a false floor in to securely hold some equipment and to hide the wiring and piping and such.
All mounts to the luggage rack.
...ongoing.
Once I'm done with the fab portion, I'll isolate the box from the rack with rubber isolation standoff's.

Of my top box, being a frame-less opening box like it is, its strength comes comes from being closed and locked into that position.

Of the false floor, it is incredibly easy with these style boxes to put a false floor with a hinged door in that can be secured with a simple cabinet lock.

To the left of the amplifier will be a nitrous bottle.
I'll template using pegboard for the actual floor and see what it all looks like at that point.

It appears you used the risers which is good in the event you want to add a spoiler. The hole dimensions go a little askew if you try to add risers as an after thought. Though those racks are hard to attach anything to with bungies or a cargo net. Kuryakin has a bag built for that rack which is pretty sweet.

I have a question about what to do about the left over holes if you want to switch to a spoiler and not use the rack. The rack that I have is identical to the one shown at the beginning of this thread.
It's seriously pitted and I can't say that I have ever used it, so the thought to go with a spoiler is what is on my mind now.


Any helpful hints would be appreciated.
Thanks,
Sean G.

Rubber grommet hole plugs is the easiest way to go........or body putty, sanding and a paint job.

or keep the rack and just add on the spoiler, though you may need to add on risers to get the clearance to add the spoiler. If the chrome is that badly pitted, take it off and have it re-chromed.

You can have the rack powder coated in black also.

I ordered my rubber washers and stainless washers from McMaster-Carr. I didn't like my options at Ace.
