I needed to have a path for cold air to flow into the trunk ... that could not be done through the rear seats ... I had tried that through installation of round speakers in 6X9 hole .. but the speaker shook badly and affected the sound. After I installed V2 speakers, that narrow hole was blocked too .. and it was necessary to get cold air to flow to the trunk ...
I opted for MDF sheetboard .. but Corolla's rear deck has an angular bend .. and here I faced a wall ... either go for MDF option ... which would rattle or look awkward .. and lose the brake light ... or drill 4" holes and cover them ... Believe me, it was a tough decision. I got 98% marks in MBA Decision Making paper .. but it seemed I could not make decision.
Several PW friends were there in Sunny's shop ... and it was a grim moment ... they all knew my concerns and they are all "uncles" of Laadli ... Finally we let Amir cut the holes.
.. and you know what ... It was a one-of-a-kind moment for Sunny too ... do you know what he did to that cut-piece of plastic?
Sunny has displayed that cut piece as a trophy/ memento on the wall of his shop
