I found that its best to double check the measurements using tape measure in the car, the base and back board i believe are pretty much the same size width wise baring about a Cm or so if i remember, so the one with smaller width is going to be he base and the one thats wider shall be the backboard as this is the main support were the other panels connect to. And as for the petrol tank side, it takes a bit of fiddling along with patience but it should fit in the left hand side, you may find you need to cut out a small section on the left hand side of the flexy mdf so that it bypasses a support for the petrol tank.
Hope this helps. Many thanks for using the guide.
had a bit of a fiddle with sanders and stuff and looks to be fittindg in there pretty well, if not a bit fiddly when trying to get the screws in (especially if u have a rubbish screwdriver and lesss than impressive screws )
thanks again russ

Great Job their mate. Iv got the wood to start mine now. The only thing im after is some black and white checkered leather/leatherette stuff to cover it in does anyone know where I can get some.
I had a similar idea - I was going to use self adhesive vinyl tiles (which B&Q do in black/white checkers or aluminium checkerplate style) but in the end I thought the carpet would hide any imperfections better!
Get some pictures up if you manage to do it in leather - that would look really nice I think!

Some black and white checkered leather/leatherette stuff. I also want to use this to cover the parcil shelf and the speaker borad under the back seats.
What material you after?

Looks good with the tank exposed imo, but can you remove the LHS board without losing the structure? Because that would look better.
no dont think i can really, it holds the back pice up in place as well as the base board resting on small brackets. at least the tank is black anyway soo looks fairly neat, you can only see a few wires and stuff so nothing major.
