First things first. We worked on the flip flop trunk and made it to where u don't need a piece of wood or metal to hold the trunk up. He simply put a L bracket in the cornors of the hindge and lid. Ofcourse you have to cut the bracket down a bit to make sure it fits around the curves of the hindge. Heres a pic of what that looks like.



and heres a couple of pics of before and after.


sorry about this pic, i tried taken over a couple of times. But it still came out blurry. Ofcourse this is before.

And this is after

Hers a couple of mess around pics i took.


this is for all of to see the side pic of my car compared to my sig.




hope to see some of you at the bash!

so i have to bungee it from the inside in which case i have to go in the back seat un bungee it then go out and unlock the trunk. do you have that problem or is it just the way i did it?

Ok brooks... we tried it your way and the lid wouldn't shut in the front. So we had to put the bolts back in the brackets anyways. And the L brackets are just placed with the other screws, so they don't interfere in any way. So if you have any information on how to close the trunk without it poping up plz let me know. Your intructions were hard to follow, and we just decided instead of caring around a piece of wood and having the lid uneven. Just to put braces so it will be even and won't have to tug around a piece of wood. Already carrying too much with me now. And i like the Flip alot better than the Flop. Gives you acces to your trunk better. :lol: And across the river on the old bridge is Spencer County. I live in that county so u prob see me in Owensboro often. Altho i go to Evansville alot, we cruise in Owensboro because more people are there. And i got the cavalier decal from the sales event at Roberts Statium. Not sure when it is now, but its their big blow out and a bunch of companies go there to sell stuff for cheap, and i mean cheap. U can buy a good 1000 watt amp with kicker solos for under 400 bucks.... and my 1400 amp cost me 400 bucks period. And i think i PM'd you on about meeting and stuff like that 90cavy. So check your messages. :wink:

so how does the front of the of the trunk (by the rear window) stay down when you do the trunk flip mod??
You have to put the bottom two screws back in for it to close properly. Thats the only prob i see with the flip/flop trunk mod. Don't know what brooks does, but we had the same prob when we tried his version.
