Title: Rear Compartment Lined With Outdoor Fabric
Post by: ron.dittmer on September 03, 2016, 12:45:25 am
I must have nothing better to do now that I am retired.  :)

After I removed all the scuff marks inside the rear compartment, I added outdoor fabric designed for water to run through it very quickly.  The gray color matches the rest of the interior perfectly.  I cut it to 94" x 7".  I installed it such that it rides up the side with all the sealant for a nice look.  I bought the material at Menards.  It is sold on those massive carpet rolls in their carpet department.  The material is sold by the foot so I bought just one foot  I don't recall the cost but it is real cheap.

I initially laid the carpet in place loosely but have since used 4 small cut rectangles of carpet tape to keep it in place and to help it follow the contours.

Very nice! Ron, it isn't a matter of having nothing else to do, it's a matter of doing what you like and enjoy... and that which doesn't stress you out. For you, these little upgrades and fixes may not seem like a lot but they make you happy. What else can you ask for?
