Fixed my boot cover. It fits now!

I picked up 4 pieces of industrial strength Velcro. You can see in the pics where I put it. This is the problem area on the boot. That is where it flares up and wont fit flat. I then put the other side on a 4 ft 1/16th by 4ft aluminum bar. This is the brace for it.

I test fit and it touches NOTHING under the boot while on the car. The sides of the top are not even close to it. This piece will be further protected to prevent any issues of it snagging on anything when I get done with it. So far it works great. After I get the boot in place I push down on the bar and its perfectly flat. Its snug as well and wont go anywhere. Both sides snap and everything works great. It was this or some other more drastic measure. This doesn't hurt the boot cover at all~

You can see how flat it makes it in a couple of pictures where I actually put the bar on there snug rather than just letting it sit loose no the Velcro in a couple of the pics.

Sweet.

Nice to nit-pick sometimes I guess.

Re: Fixed my boot cover. It fits now!

for anyone that doesnt know the 03/04 cobra boot cover fits like ****. Even when they first showed the car in Detroit you can see how crappy it fit on the vert... just sad...

Re: Fixed my boot cover. It fits now!

Racer Rat is working on a 2 piece hard tonneau style cover for the verts that only cover the top and leaves the back seat fully functional. I can't wait to see the finished product and the price.

Re: Fixed my boot cover. It fits now!

as long as it does NOT sit on the black metal part then im good with it. I dont like the full covers due to they sit on this and rub it and mess it up.

Re: Fixed my boot cover. It fits now!

^^ I hope it does not at well. However, I have not seen a sample yet, so I am not sure. it is something that she keeps posting about and has been since about june/july. "getting there", "almost done", "making progress", "Been busy", blah blah blah.

Re: Fixed my boot cover. It fits now!

I had pics of someone's custom job. They had a full back seat cover but you could pop out the back part and let the top up~ kind of interesting.
