    Trunk mat

    After getting my cocomats I began to think of protection for my trunk since I am always putting things in there that might cause some wear or leak etc. I asked the cocomat people if they had a pattern and they said "sure, we have one" but when I described the uneven floor they decided to send me their pattern. Not even close! So I cut my own pattern and decided to leave off the "wings" along the side as it might be to hard to bend this with the backing. 100 bucks and a little more piece of mind.

    Looks great, but I have the crema rugs which are even more sensitive, so I need full coverage I think. I've been using an old ugly terry towel. I need something better!

    And I want something better! Right now I have this cheesy plastic held up by painters tape.

    We need to get a group together and commission something that would cover not just the floor of the trunk, but also the sides one foot up. Something tailored specifically for the Z8. Any ideas who to go to for the design (hint, hint) and manufacture?

    Well I have my own custom case with the complete 'on the road repair kit' in the trunk. It fills the entire bottom of the trunk space, with everything needed to keep us all on the road, so I don't really need anything else back there. Also there is something quite practical about the black carpet back there, it isn't glamorous, but it works!

    I like it but have never been sure about the coco mats as I had something similar years ago and the beads left some permanent depressions in the carpet.... How are these -- is there some sort of backing to prevent that?
    Best Regards,

    The mat is completly backed in heavy rubber with knibs on the rubber to keep it from sliding that measure about 3mm long. I will see if these make an impression since they would be easy to snip off.

    Just ask to use the pattern for a Z8 trunk sent to Josh Brewer from New York (not their original!)and choose your color from their range at cocomats .com
