Introduction: Diy Car Trunk Cover
I have a big dog (Great Dane) and I love to have clean car:) Mission (im)possible:)!
Because I didn’t find anything similar for acceptable price I decided to made it by my self! Like usual:))
This is made from truck - trailer tarps / cover, strong material, very easy to put in/out of trunk and clean with wet cloth. The smell was horrible first week.
What did I need;
- truck trailer tarps / cover
- press stud
- cotton cloth
- velcro tape
Measured trunk of my car and made paper model.
With cotton cloth and iron I made “sharp” fold. On this piece comes press studs.
On pictures you can see where I put press studs.
When I put cover in trunk I made some details cuts to perfect fit.
With velcro tape stitch cover on rear sits.
Piece that comes over bumper I fold up and protect rear door by inside. When is that piece over bumper I protect bumper from dogs claws. (Kill two birds with one stone :-P)
Step 6: UPDATE
After usage I saw, the velcro tape was not good idea.
I made sides of chipboards. I protect all edges with white/transparent wood glue. Maybe will chipboard stay a little bit longer.
Pieces of real wood in left and right corner are very important. I made first ride without these pieces and everything goes everywhere :/
And with these sides I receive more space:)
You can see fire extinguisher on left side. Above I put first aid box. On right side I have stuff for my dog.
We have a be nice policy.
Please be positive and constructive.
