From the very beginning I was sure, that the back of the car needs some attention. I shouldn't be left "naked" as it was.

Aluminium to both sides and the floor was a consequence...
But I needed the changes made to the car to be flexible. MTB-Transportation, Sleeping in the car, transportation of B I G cargo etc.
All the work itself was done by a local mechanic.
I got the car back looking like this:
Quiet obviously you can see the hook for the bike and the Bed;-)
Additional details on this project:
Behind the big, big pieces of alloy there is some material for sound-proofing. It's also helpful against heat and/or cold.
Only three big pieces of aluminium have been used: One for each side, one for the floor.

Some hooks on the right hand side (hardly to be seen on this pic)...
A real big step towards multi-usability was
this system, installed inside both sides of the car:
Highly flexible, used to fix any kind of cargo.
The mountings on this picture are only an
With special bolts I already used this system to put up a washing-line in a zick-zack-shape. GOOD to dry your clothes!!!
