Has anyone made an access hole for ease of accessing the rear struts/camber plates? Trying to get some ideas...

I assume mean through the trunk area .. like through the carpeted piece / the speaker tray.  I haven't done that, but it's a great idea!!  Curious to see what people reply.

the struts dont come close to the speaker trays. I just cut a small hole in the carpet to adjust my D2s

Yes I am referring to the carpeted panels. I already have slits cut for the strut tower bar to pass thru, just wanting to make a clean looking access hole of some sort.

I recently got a strut tower bar myself. If you the chance post up a pic of the cuts you made for the strut bar, I'd like to see it.
