Default Hatchback Spare Tire Compartment Lid

Hi, I'm new here. Just bought a 1998 Civic Hatchback CX, and the lid that covers the spare tire compartment is missing. Aside from the dealership and scrapyards, can someone point me in the right direction to find a replacement? Are there any good online mailorder companies? Most of what I have seen look like generic flexible liners. I can't imagine they would provide much of a surface for luggage.

Any thoughts are appreciated.

I'm with stealthy, build your own. It shouldn't be hard. Just go to Home Depot, buy a piece of plywood and cut it to size.

I assume you mean the hatch cover, not the little styrofoam piece that sits on top of the spare wheel and holds tools.

It's not missing... CXs just don't come with them. If you want one you're going to need the clips for it too.

Well, if he really means the hatch cover, and not the false floor, then it's completely different. I mean, subs aren't going to sit on the hatch cover.

The member here, Eran, has a CX and had a DIY hatch cover for awhile, but it rattled when he drove since it had no way to be properly secured. Plus it didn't bend in the middle like the sotck covers. He replaced it with one from a DX hatch and found out he'd need clips to secure it in place (otherwise it sits too high and rattle too). Got some clips for it and popped those in and it's much nicer.

Also remember to properly secure it for safety reasons. Things in the back of the car can and often will go forward in the event of a collision. This can cause secondary collisions which can cause death.

get a sheet of hardboard or tileboard.

Cheap, stiff, flexible and light. I carried a piece of 4X8 tileboard in my 'teg. flexed from the rear floorboard to the hatch. It didn't break
