Default My GP rear delete/addition

Ive gotten a lot of interest in people wanting to do this over the past couple months and i wanted to share the finished product of removing my rear seats on my JCW and installing the GP panels, mats, storage compartment, etc. I stayed away from the cargo bar as its an ungodly priced item.

enjoy

Ohh...I commented over on your NAM thread. I love this mod. It's so clean and OEM looking. Very well done

if I did it on a blue car, I would have gotten the red panels shot body color. I think that would look super sweet.

Looks great man! Do you notice a difference in acceleration or handling? I assume you would... Great job!

I love this, I have wanted to do this for awhile. I will try it someday without using the GP panels. They run about $1K for the pair and you lose the 6X9 speaker mounts. At a minimum I will install that storage compartment since i already have a rear delete kit.

It would be nice to have it continue all the way back and have a compartment in the back like the Clubman.

yeah, thats the next project: getting sound into the rear. Probably going to use this as an excuse to really upgrade and go for bust with all the room back there now. The head unit and front speakers have all been replaced prior and now its time to give the back some love.

Still trying to stay a bit conspicuous and not have too much equipment out there(taking up space and being easily viewed from the outside, etc)

so if anyone has any suggestions as to equipment....

i might not go for the hyperness of the hyper blue but tackling that red is definitely a priority. It just wasnt financially feasible at the install time but high on the to-do list.

That looks friggin sweet!!!! The red GP panels would go great in Bruiser seeing as how he's already rocking the red standard panels.
