  • Full Size Spare Wheel..Where can I find this piece of foam that raises the boot floor

    Hi, as per this link on ebay, someone is selling a spare wheel kit for an astra H / vxr, he has in the picture a piece of foam that apparently is a GM Part to raise the boot floor, now I have a piece of MDF which I custom cut which is really heavy to raise my floor, Iv'e never seen this part before and I want one to get rid of this heavy MDF so has anyone seen it before or know if it really is GM part or custom part or know the part number & price?

    Thanks, Matt.

    You could custom fit a piece of foam or kingspan board, from most builders merchants.

            If asking for Polystyrene from a merchants ask for Jablite, and when you have cut it to sixe you could wrap it in some flock or fabric vinyl stuff

                Where does it say that it is a GM part? Ive never seen this on EPC, infact just had another look, still cant see it! Must be a custom job.

                  I made mine myself out of polistyrene board. Just made a template out of Cardboard then cut the Foam. Although I will say to fit a full size spare wheel in the well I had to let some are out (not an issue as I can just pump it up with the compressor before fitting!

                    That insert is home made.
                    The curve is not not quite right, looks hand cut to me
