Default Tearing up that rear of the PT

I'm going to be pulling the trim and carpet out of the back of the Cruiser this weekend to see what all is under there to make my new wood floor a PITA. I was just curious if anyone had any photos, links, or words of experience on this. I'm sure a few people have done it, and wondered what kind of oddball **** I might be encountering.

On the plus side, since I frequently remove the rear seats and leave them in the kitchen, and the g/f doesn't like it much, plus I need someplace to stash random trim and parts during projects, she's let me build a 4*8 hanging storage shelf in the garage!

A few screws and most everything pops out. These cars can be 75% dis-assembled by hand alone. Most everything you just pull and it pops off

Heres one pic when i did the wifes stereo.

I was kind of interested in what the floor looked like without the carpet.
Good pic though.

I'm starting this weekend, well if the rain stops, with pulling everything out of my vert. First the rear and front passenger seat, then all carpeting, everything down to metal and wires. Gotta start putting in my eDead, have 100 linear feet of it so going to do a double layer. I'll post pics of it as I go through it...

How about a few pics and a tutorial

I want to take the rear 1/4 trim out so I can shoot some Fluid Film in to the voids around the wheel wells to rust proof and lube the rear power window glides and tracks on my convertibles.

I am guessing they use a lot of those xmas tree pop fasteners.

I'm sorry all the tools are in the previous pic but it does show the floor rear to front.

Will do, couldn't start as it rained this morning so may be starting tomorrow. I'd like to do the same as to the insulation. Do you just use that regular spray expanding foam?

That's fantastic!
Is there a plate there that could be an access to the gas tank/fuel pump under where the back seats go?

Now that I look at it more, it looks like a thin mat of insulation, but that would be sweet.
