Made this last summer for a few camping trips after being inspired by the "Subaru-Falia" thread on one of the offroad forums. It fits like a glove and its been in my fozzy ever since I finished it, but its completely removable. This isnt a write up just pictures of my process and any tips I can give people attempting something similar.
Apologies for the inconsistent photo sizes this is my 4th attempt to post this friggin thread! lol.
Gus D. Bus -Summer 2016:
Used 3/4" plywood so weight wouldn't be a problem. Made a 2-part partition to hold flashlight, hatchet, fan, etc.
Used a metal edge piece from the hardware store to avoid tearing it up with heavy cargo:
Behind the "60" rear seat folded down maybe ~2" of clearance:
I'm 6' 3" so in order for me to fit the front passenger seat has to scoot forward a little bit:
And this guy is what sits in the gap:
Reverse side (went a little nuts with the screws on the foot support, lol) :
Those hinges let it fold up to fit in the rear:
In the few times I've used this setup it was always raining. So making use of all the space I can inside really helps make it feel like a camper. With the 60 seat down the 40 is still a free seat. So the bed becomes a desk space:
Then it folds up to give you access to 20qt cooler storage space
Clearance around center/door armrests:
And yes, I fit:
So does the OEM boot cover (or whatever) :
And of course both parts have been stained (golden oak) and watersealed from top to bottom.
I've upgraded the interior a bit since these were taken so I'll have to update them in another thread. If anyone is interested to see higher res photos there is an album I made on imgur you can view here: https://imgur.com/a/MZkp1
