Storage with undertail?

I'm thinking of putting a hotbodies undertail on my '03. Am I to assume any storage will gone? It looks like the location of the key will be eliminated but was wondering if there is a mod to relocate it. Thanks

theres a hole in the hotbodies undertail for they key, storage is still pretty decent, i wanna say you only lose like a inch of depth in the tail but otherwise its the same

if you have a clean OEM uncut undertail, i suggest finding a used battery tray to cut instead of chopping up a good one

There's a place for it, just like RC-DEVIL said. Make sure the cable is lubed real good, because the cable may take a sharp turn, and you want to make sure the latch closes properly and easily. If you want to keep your seat cowl cover that is.
