Decided to become a Community Vendor as there seems to be interest in me doing these and if this site didn't exist, I wouldn't of been given this opportunity. I have been looking at making a trunk lid mat for awhile, didn't think it would get the attention it is, but after a few people asked me about making them, decided to go ahead and do it. In case you haven't seen my post in the Visual/Body Modifications section. This is what I'm referring to.
FINISHED PICTURES BELOW!!!!
In the above pictures, the masking I kinda did in a hurry, but you get the idea of how I'm doing the lettering material.
I'm going to make these on an as need basis. First though - I'm not a business, I just like doing this kind of stuff, but I do like what I make to look nice.
I'm using 3/16" foam board and #11 adhesive, total thickness of piece is 3/8", weight wise, it's not much.
Heather Charcoal (Matches our stock trunkliner covering)
Black (Still a trunkliner covering, just black)
Recessed Letter covering
A fabric store I passed on the way to work has a large selection of felt colors, currently I have red, blue, black, silver.
Seen other colors such as oranges, blues, pinks, greens, etc... So color choice I'm pretty flexible, vinyl (chrome, etc) is an option, but would be additional cost. Or if you have your own material you want to use, can send the bottom cutout with no material on it, get some adhesive, apply your material, replace the cutout and your good to go.
Raised, if you want this option, I add a "GT" or similar to the top, then the entire mat on the front side will be covered with the trunkliner material.
Recessed, this option I cut out the "GT" or similar on the top board, a piece is cut out on the bottom board and a material in your choice of color is adhered to it, that piece is then replaced onto the bottom board using masking tape to hold back together.
Trunk Lid Mat, 6 plastic push pins for a 1/4" hole, Trunkliner plugs to cover up the mounting holes.
You lining up the trunk mat to your lid and drilling (5) 1/4" holes.
"GT", "GTP", "GTX" or similar, the 3 letter options will be a smaller font than the "GT" option, I'd like to keep this simple so no "Mom's Grocery Getter". Font will match the font for 97-03 cars. If there is a different font for a different optioned car, if I can find it, can still do it.
"GT" Option: $80 + $12.50 shipping to the lower 48 states
"GTP" or "GTX" or similar Option $95 + $12.50 shipping to the lower 48 states.
Until I did Coltrane's and Shawn's I had no clue how much more labor intensive the 3 letters and being smaller would be. It's roughly an hour + time doing those.
If you want a vinyl ie: checkered board, may be a little bit extra.
I'd be shipping these out Fed Ex, I'll supply the tracking number when I get it.
I think that about covers it, I already have a person who wants a mat with raised lettering, so I'll be able to post what that looks like in the next couple days, along with another similar to the one posted but with a different lettering color. If your interested post here or if you have any questions on something that I didn't think of.
HERE ARE FINISHED/INSTALLED PICTURES!!!
Drilled the holes and installed.
This is after I made the plugs to cover up the push pins, pretty much done here.
Please send me a PM or describe here with the options listed above what you want. The price in the lower 48 will be "GT" option $80 + $12.50 shipping, "GTP", "GTX" or similar $95 + $12.50 shipping. I'm a one man show so I plan on doing 2 or 3 a week as time permits.
