VW MK4 air set-up trunk upgrade

Some of you might remember the Budget build done a while back ago. The initial set-up was done to show simplicity and keep it budget friendly.  
Well, it was time for an upgrade and redo. This is a perfect way to show you can start simple and build from there. Since the original build, the owner has removed his B.O.C set-up and upgraded to Airlift XL's front struts and now it was time to change the trunk set-up.
The customer built the new frame for the floor and made room for a jack, his spare tire, and a small tool box. We then mounted the JL Audio stealth sub box in the spare tire and flipped it upside down so we would have room for the air tank. The tank was then mounted on a board and hinged so it could be moved up and out of the way to access the spare when needed.
The finishing step was taking the tank and covering it in a spun aluminum vinyl. Capping it off with a  new upper floor covered in Ultra Suede and molded in caps for the tank. The rest of the cargo area and seat backs were treated to the same material.
