Hi Guys

I just tried searching the forum and couldn't find any solution, so I am hoping that someone may be able to point me in the right direction.

I want a L shaped mat.
We have a Toyota Troopy and ideally want a CGEAR style mat that runs the length of the car and then around the back of the car.

I'm sure I saw one in a magazine somewhere... or maybe it was at a 4WD show.

I'm awaiting a reply form CGEAR to see if they will do a custom design.

If anyone knows a company who produces them can you please let me know!

Have a great day!

I can save you a wait, Cgear won't do custom sizes!
Any canvas repairer should be able to edge & eyelet a custom shape for you.

What about those square rubber mats you can join together like a jig saw? Make different shapes to suit your needs.

Two rectangular mats together maybe what you spotted at the 4WD show (just a guess). A single L shaped map is fine for one application but not that versatile (ie. if a CGEAR mat is what you want ..buy two). As suggested, shade cloth is possibly an economic solution but have no idea of the relative cost or characteristics of a CGEAR mat.

I sent one final shout after him to stick to the track, to which he replied “All right,” That was the last ever seen of Gibson - E Giles 23 April 1874

Thanks guys. We appreciate it.

You are quite right CGEAR do ot do custom.

My hestitation with shade cloth is the durability and sand/dirt getting in and out. We are planning a year long trip... so we are looking for things to be used daily and will get a fair bit of wear and tear. Not usually afraid of a bit of dirt... but over such a ong period of time it will be nice to keep clean!

I think we might just go for a long mat besides the car.
And either another mat for behind the rear of the car or just go with jigsaw rubber matt....

A tip for others: I picked up a $15 rug from KMART last year. It is really durable and hardy [suppose to be for indoors but i've re-purposed it]. And has been perfect for weekend trips.

Thanks for your input
Much appreciated
