How are others finishing behind seats with no gas tank?

Planning ahead in my mind while my truck is away at paint. My tank is moved to the rear. I have buckets to install. I'm wondering how others have finished that area. I think this will help with noise suppression as well. I envision something that wraps around the corner area. Here's some progress pics they sent me.

Re: How are others finishing behind seats with no gas tank?

I just ran the sound deadening up the back of the cab and installed the Auto Custom Carpet kit to help with the sound/drone attenuation. If you're into a big sound system, it's a great opportunity to build a custom speaker enclosure.

Re: How are others finishing behind seats with no gas tank?

I kept it low buck but decent. First i put the sound deadener stick on stuff covering around 60%, then jute pad, the carpet runner from Home Depot. My bottle jack lives in the cab corner and they are covered by block off panels made of heavy carboard which I painted black and attached fiberglass ductwork insullation to the backsides with spray adhesive. I used the adhesive on the back wall to keep the jute and carpet up too. I wasn't sure how to work around the old flanges on the wall for the tank straps so i just cut a little flap in the carpet. The glue came loose there, but I don't care.

Re: How are others finishing behind seats with no gas tank?

I also did the sound deadening up the back and then covered it with this felt that I pulled out of a 97 regular cab. I had to clean it up and drill a few holes for the Christmas tree fasteners. Iím pretty happy with it.

Re: How are others finishing behind seats with no gas tank?

Did some scouting around the wreckers this morning and came home with this for $10. It's from a 2004 F150 reg cab. I plan to trim the top off a bit to bring it closer to the back and I'll trim the bottom to follow the contours. The back wall has a bracket for the gas tank straps and I'm thinking I can utilize those with some slip on C clips nuts. It'll get some black vinyl paint. (you'll have to stand on your head to look at the pic)

I built this out of fibreglass. Has storage with a cover that opens and speakers on the ends.

Bigmoe, what color is your cab, the paint color is smoking hot.

Re: How are others finishing behind seats with no gas tank?

When I swapped in bucket seats, I built a full panel behind the seats out of 1/8" ABS plastic covered in diamond tufted marine vinyl. I subsequently redid the entire insides with full door panels and full size diamonds:

Yes it's the 1965 Brigade Blue but it's base/clear.

Re: How are others finishing behind seats with no gas tank?

Here's that 04 F150 back wall panel painted and installed. It's pretty sturdy and the two bolts into the existing brackets on the back wall hold it nicely. I have two L brackets in each lower corner as well. I've ordered some 1/8" ABS bendable sheet plastic to form into the corners.
Why is my pic upside down?

Re: How are others finishing behind seats with no gas tank?

I got the corners finished. I bought .093 12 x 24 sheets of plastic (Kydex V) off of Ebay. I made cardboard templates. The Kydex I was able to form in a curve using some heat from a heat gun. There was some color variation so I sprayed it with the same vinyl paint I used on the centre section. I have Honda Odyssey door seals that have the extra lip on the inside and was able to slip the plastic into that lip.

Donor was a regular cab but I never checked others to see if it was the same.
