You guys reminded me that I had all the stuff for this project already, so I went ahead and built one today. Need to cover it with something.

This is what I'm using to cover it Amazon: Marine Upholstery. You can pick stuff up like that locally from a decent car audio place.

I applied it using 3M Super 77 after I sealed the wood. Be sure to let the glue tack up a little bit before putting the carpet on it. Letting the glue tack up a little will keep the carpet from getting saturated.

I'm not sure about minimum post count, but I tried to embed your picture for you and couldn't. Maybe the host doesn't allow hotlinking?

Much appreciated... I've used it on other forums before... so it's weird that it doesn't work here. Oh well, no big deal.

I built one, very useful and inexpensive.
50.5” x 22.75” then cut the sides to fit with a jig saw. Made a template out of cardboard for the correct angles.
Also put a 2x2 across the center underneath for support.
Covered in black speaker carpet.

Thanks for the measurements in the first post. All materials are cut, blocks are glued and screwed to the underside and drying. Gray indoor-outdoor carpet is waiting to be fitted when dry. I’ll add the dowel after that’s done. Pics when complete if I can.

Its very strong, i put 100lbs on it and it didn't flex at all. All in all not bad for $24. if you're looking to do something similar and want details just let me know and I'll put up dimensions and stuff

I started with a piece of ply wood 3/4" Thick (you can use any size you want) Cut to these specs ------v

You will also need a 1" dowel rod, 1" pipe clamps (4), and carpet of your choice to cover
Cut dowel rod to 45.5"
You will need to use the pieces you cut off to glue to the underside near the back seats to level out the shelf (as the drawing shows)
I'll be adding a sub also, same place yours is. Does the sub vibrate or rattle the shelf at all?

Mine did…so I moved the subs to the rear seat floors. ( I never have passengers in the back)
