I've modified my trunk area, as many have, but use an entirely different approach. Well, maybe not entirely, but I increased the trunk space by about 3 cubic feet. The chassis is at the powder coater and I didn't take pictures yet.
With regard to "....one complete sheet of aluminum", the top of my deck is is even with the bottom of the side 2x3 tubing. In addition, I have the typical open storage area beneath the deck. The hinged cover over it is also removable.
A couple months back I asked the same question on what people were doing on the inside of the trunk lid. Do a search, and you will find a bunch of photos.
When installing the in floor battery box, I cut out a piece of the floor aluminum, and it was the right size to make a tear drop shaped panel to cover the hole. I plan on riveting it in and polishing the panel on the inside of the trunk.
