    Trunk Organization

    I bought a new '05 WRB WRX sedan about a month ago. I'm pretty happy with the purchase. I pretty much knew exactly what I was getting, since my roommate drives an '03 WRX.

    Anyway, the only real problem I've run across so far is that everything slides around in the trunk. If, for example, I put a 12 pack of coke in the back, I can't safely put bread or produce back there, because it'll get completely crushed even if I drive gently. So, has anyone purchased or fabbed anything to solve this problem, or does everyone just deal with it the way I currently do, by putting most stuff in the back seat?

    The ideal solution for me would just be to buy something to solve the problem. But, most of the stuff I've seen looks like it'd work for the wagon but not the sedan (little compartments that attach to the back seat). I'd be interested in making something myself, but I'd definitely prefer a guide, since I'm not experienced in that area. I definitely don't want something that looks tacky or poor quality.

    Any ideas?

    P.S. I've done several searches, but if this has been covered before, I'm sorry.

    P.P.S. AGH! I searched for "trunk organizer", so I missed this thread (Trunk Organization!). Anyway, I still didn't see a good solution there, so I'm still open for suggestions.

    I don't know if you can use a cargo net on the sedan. Have one in my wagon and it's awesome. Just dump the grocery bags in there, and you can drive like a madman all the way home without breaking as much as an egg.

    What you need is the cargo net from an old GC8. I've got one in my 02 WRX sedan and it works perfect. The net for the WRX wagon is too big for the sedan. Just go to the dealership and ask for an 01 2.5RS sedan cargo net. I think it was like $30. Sorry, but I don't know the actual part number. They should be able to find it though.

    Where does the cargo net attach? In my '05, the only place I can see is the little hooks formed by the trunk spring bars (I don't know what to call them). But that would place the cargonet in the very back, and make it difficult to use, I'd think. Is there a more convenient attachment point?

    Is that the $20 anti-slip mat? Subaru.com doesn't have a picture of that one. That's pretty cheap if it is. I was figuring more.

    I'm actually thinking of making something out of fiberglass, but I've never done glass work before, so I'd definitely want to start with a smaller project and work my way up.

    I'll try to take some pics of my cargo net later. If you look on both sides of the trunk opening, there are little plastic pop things (one on each side). The cargo net comes with hooks that you put where those plastic pop things are. Then the net hooks into the clips. It's super easy.

    I appreciate it. I'd be interested in seeing it.

    Sorry it took so long, but here are some shots of the cargo net in my car.

    Don't worry about the delay. I've been out of the country, and without Internet access, anyway.

    Thanks for the pictures. It looks pretty good, and I definitely think it'd help with general groceries, but if I had a 24 pack of coke in the trunk with it, I think it'd still crush stuff. Definitely an improvement, though.

    I've looked into making something myself, but I haven't quite decided what I'm going to do yet. I mostly need to find something to carpet with, but it'd need to be fairly flexible to fit the contours. If I end up making something, I'll post a step-by-step, assuming it turns out well, of course.
