After having to wrestle the plywood and carpet out in a busy parking lot, to provide access for a jump start, I got an Idea. When I got home I took out the plywood and sawed it in half in the middle. I used inner tube rubber to staple down two hinges. Laid the wood back in, (easier clearing the opening now with it folded), and dropped the carpet back in. Looks no different, but to access the battery, I now just fold it back and there it is. For the spare tire or whatever is stored under there, just grab the leather strap and fold it forward. Simple, Slick, and the best part, free.
