Hey guys I'm gonna be starting a complete trunk. I just want to know how you guys hold your side panels up to the faceboard with out having the screws show.

I don't understand your picture, but if you must use screws, you can countersink them, and put a slit in the carpet so you can get to them later.  You could also just build a trim piece to cover them after you're finished (use double-sided tape or whatever).  You could fiberglass.  There's many ways to go, just be creative.

i have seen it done a couple different ways bigpimpin.... one guy i seen make the panels a shade bigger than they needed to be so they just pushed into place and were kind of stuck there... and another guy secured the panels by screwing into the panels threw the lip on the trunk.. then your weather striping will cover the screw so they r hidden.... to me the first way works better as its a compression type fit on the panels and they can be poped out alot easier for messing with your system

I might just fiberglass the sides and secure them to the faceboard and cover it all together. But I didn't want to fiberglass
