Hi All,
I'm about to get into making a set of draws for the ute.
I did the dame for the Jack around 5 years ago with some 100kg draw runners, and found it most cost affective.

Just been down to Bunnings to get the Black furry material (technical term)that I covered them with. Seems like I either didn't it from them or they have stopped selling it. It was thin and easily bent around the edges.
They only seem to sell thick carpet like stuff which I think may be dificult to use.

Anyone out there have any ideas where I can buy some suitable material?

I'm in Perth

Tks in advance

Ian
Try your local upholsterer and ask him for some marine carpet,pretty flex and easy to stick down.

Thanks Allan,
I want to get a fold up foam matress from there as well just incast I end up sleeping in the back of the ute, although at 3 inches thick I suspect I may be a little large

How about an inflatable mattress? Clark Rubber probably have those also.
