PostSubject: Question about trunk floor removal   Sat Dec 07, 2013 2:50 am

Hi all, I am in the process of removing my trunk floor, and need to know if I remove it completely including the part where its bolted to the frame at the very rear (see pic), and the trunk extensions, won't the body flex too much as there is no support at all at the rear?
Thanks.

Joe-
Place your supports for the rear of the car just in front of the rear wheel openings. You are right, if the back is supporting the rear of the car, with the floor removed, it may fold up.

That's good thinking Joe...Always think safety first...plus wouldn't want to damage Christine. Cool
