I bought some 1/2” polycarbonate material used for skid plates in the 4x4 word and plan on making a couple different size platforms that bolt to the factory rear rack . One will lay over the passenger seat and extend several inches rear of rack end and the other will start at the rear of passenger seat and go about 14” towards the rear (large enough to secure a 35 liter dry bag)... I have the oem paneers that open to the side so I just need room to insert my key into them and with the key in take them off . I’m pretty sure this is doable. The material is about as stiff as plywood. Any thoughts or tips on this project? Thanks

    You won't get much down force because you will be blocking too much air.
