Hi all,

My VN has nothing (moulds, plastic, wood etc) in the boot what so ever. Nothing covers the lights the spare wheel (which is mounted on the side - Not sure if this is stock or not) and I only have carpet in there.

It is also leaking water, which I am not sure if that is why the inside cabin smells a little funky too .. I check the boot one day after I was driving in the rain, and noticed that the walls inside the boot had water all over them.. I am not sure if it is the seals in the brake lights, or coming through from the boot seal...

I was going to customise some MDF flooring, but don't really want to carpet it all if the boot is letting in water... But what I would like to see is some good detailed pics of a stock boot to see if there is any plastic I can get my hands on to help return the boot to stock....

Next project is also to have a fair bit of rust cut out of the car... :(

Thanks in advance :)

If your boots leaking id get new rubber seals done :)

yeah mate, theres no plastic as such in the boots... just carpet with what looks like a bad job of sound deadening on the bottom and the spare wheel cover. and yes, all vn/vp spare wheels are mounted on the left hand side of the boot off memory (u dont have a special wheel spot ;))

cheers
Josh

Mine doesn't have anything except a bit of scabby old carpet. It looks pretty horrible in the boot! As far as I know,a moulded carpet from a VR - VS will fit and looks a lot better as it covers up most of the quarter panels and the spare wheel.

I don't know about the water leaks. Mine leaks but I can't find where it's coming from, even after sitting in the boot with a torch while someone hoses down the car. I might just put some mood lighting in the boot and call it a water feature :whistling

Get Jamie Jury (or however he spells his bloody name) to put in your water feature... :yeah:

I think I may just proceed with the custome MDF flooring that I want to do then ... Thanks for the confirmation guys ... :bow:
