This project came about due to the fact that I wanted to install
a video screen in the back of the hatch for events. I didn't want to use any of the space in the hatch due to functionality.
the only way to do this,was to create fiberglass pieces that fit on to the original plastic pieces in the hatch. the
only video monitor I had wasn't the kind that just attaches to any surface, it has a seperate circuit board,control panel,and
monitor. therefore all the pieces had to be fitted in place. here are some pictues of the project.

the finished part,it's composed of three pieces,the main piece with the screen,the
filler piece above the door,and the door itself. they are all made from fiberglass mat and covered in black tweed.
