Because the floor needs to go all the way up before you can access the spare wheel, I had to make a hinge first.
So I started to saw 2 little alu plates of 10mm thick.
Then I screwed them together and drilled 22mm holes in them.
These holes I oppressed with a lager of 22mm.

"Oppress" sound really professional, but I did it quite simple...
As you can see, I placed the plate between the bench. After that I took a cap, which was a bit smaller than the lager, and then I turned it all together. Simple

The result.

The alu plates will be mounted on a bracket, which is already in the polo (from the factory)

I screwed a bolt through the lager, an M8.

Once I did this on both sides, I connected these 2 with a U

This U is on the inside 18mm. There I'll place the wood in.
You can also see that the wood will be placed diagonally
