Trunk flap protector thingy

So I'm looking for a trunk liner

I can find many fitted ones and I found a good one on American muscle but I also want a flap that covers the top of the rear bumper.

The ones you sometimes see on taxis to protect the car from scratches when you load luggage.

I'm thinking of maybe making one but I'm trying to look for an off the shelf solution.

I have seen those on cars in NYC and always wondered if they scratch the hell out of the paint on the bumper.

It would be just for use when loading and unloading, I would presume it would some how fold under or around the trunk liner.

Here is the liner


but with something like this that flips out when needed

Whoa! Careful there! Those golf clubs look REALLY heavy! Good thing you have that protector b/c there's no way you could set those lead weights in there w/o scratching the bumper! of course I'm just being a wise @$$.

I'm sure since you're referring to NYC you're worried about the bodies you slide in and out of the trunk!

Sorry, I'm no help.

Hey,

So the trunk liners / protectors i looked at non came with a built in flap so, i'm buying the rubber trunk liner from American Muscle and then buying the fold out bumper protector seperatly.

As far as i can tell the bumper protector velcros to the stock trunk carpet. So i plan to velcro the bumper protector in, flap it out, lay in the rubber liner then fold over the bumper protector back on top and then use when needed.

The bumper protector i found here Bumper & Bootlip Protector | Practical & Protection | Richbrook Shop but they dont deliver outside of the UK.

My wife actully found an ebay store that will ship them to US/Canada
Richbrook Ford Official Boot Lip and Bumper Protector | eBay
