PostSubject: The Wally World Cargo Mat Mod   Tue Jan 11, 2011 11:19 am

Bit of a back story. So as of late I've been using my wagon more and more at work. Well, I decided I diddnt want to mess up my carpet so I began looking for a cargo mat. The factory ones proved impossible to find so I started looking at rubber bed liners from pickups. Those diddnt look good so I began to give up. Well today I was at WalMart when I saw they had 5x7 area rugs for $20. So I picked up a gray one and got it home. Now obviously, 5' is too wide for the back of the wagon so I cut down 6" on each side as it has a beveled edge and I wanted it to look even. After that I simply took it outside and threw it in the wagon. With the spare 6"x7' pieces I may make an extension that covers the tailgate later. But here's the finished product:



And for anyone that may want to do this, the 5x7 rugs come in Tan, Black, Red, and Gray. The tan and red look pretty close to the gm tan and red fwiw.

Justin, you said you are using the wagon more for work. Do you mean the liquor store or your trained profession?

At the funeral home. Mostly just as a flower car for now. I still need to tint the windows and get hearse plates before I can make transfers with it.

Nice, I did the same thing in my Suburban!

On a related note, never buy "floor mats" for your vehicle when you need winter mats. They want like 23-35 bucks for those stupid mats that say Chevy or Michelin on them, they smell like rubber ass to the point you can taste the carcinogens, and they're usually made in China.

I got two front door "Welcome" mats (that don't say anything on them" at Wal-Fart, and they fit pretty well in the footwells of my Caprice. I don't think I have a pic, but they needed no trimming and hold slush/water, etc. in them so it stays off the carpet. They're bigger than floor mats too. They also cost about 6-7 bucks each, are made of recycled rubber with lint/felt stuff on them, and are made in the USA!
