I was thinking about putting wood panel in my hatch space and cutting around the spare tire hatch and adding hinges so itll still be functional.
What do you guys think?
Yay? Nay?

Getting quality wood to make it a "class" job would be difficult unless you make it different panels. Even that luan ply looks like luan ply. It's a thin veneer mahogany but never quite cuts it IMHO. I built a few boat hatches from it and always thought it looked kind of cheap. I mean it looks smooth but probably because you know it's plywood?

Perhaps if you did a strip of leather overlay on the sides and then a panel of wood in the center?

Look in a directory for exotic woods and there is some wild stuff out there and it does not cost that much.
