Default Keep my box level/ from sliding! Help!

So i will be putting a big box where my back seats used to be, and the plain it will sit on is not level. I need a way to level it off (prob just cut some 2x4s) but I also need a way to bolt it down to something or just an effective way to keep it from sliding forward when i hit the brakes, or side to side on turns.

if using wood to level it, I would go to Fiberglass , Epoxy , Composites, Carbon Fiber - U.S. Composites, Inc. and order Fasco 110 and glue the wood down to the frame of the car. Make sure you sand the frame beforehand.

IT's the strongest glue you'll ever use for stuff like this.

This way you do not have to worry about drilling into areas you can't see the other side of.

I'll pass on that. Way too much destruction. I was thinking strategic L brackets or something.

where the seat belts bolt to is the strongest place to fasten something from.

I always use 3/8" bolts and fender/lock washers to secure stuff in the cabin, and caulk underneath it to keep it from creaking.

My avatar shows my sub box all the way back against the back seat. There were 4 cargo tie downs and removed the 2 closest to the back seat and spent maybe a few bucks at the hardware store and got 2 long bolts to bolt down the sub box. Guaranteed not to move practically. Using existing seat belt threaded holes or back seat holes would be the way to go instead of doing drilling.
