Like I said...it was worth posing the question and all of you negative people caused it not to fit.

Since I pulled the carpet etc..I now need to go clean out my trunk.

Thanks Bill and Bill :P

In all fairness, this was my stupid idea to begin with and no, I did not even try to put the full-sizer in the donut hole. Thanks for the info.

I simply had a moment to try it out. Plus..my TS was close by. Besides..at one time..some thought the idea of flight was a stupid idea.. supercharging was a stupid idea..

This would be a great one had it worked.

you got plenty of trunk space, leave it on top and put the other stuff in the well. And get a vynal tire cover from a jeep or something in a junkyard

... All of the essential fluids in a milk crate, with a Back up PCM...
You seriously carry a spare pcm?

I use the cargo net for the DAILY load. Not the long-term stuff. Cargo bar holds the stuff right against the back of the rear seat back. Between the strut towers.
