Great idea!

Thanks for the advice! I picked up a couple of mats at Home Depot today and went to cuttin'. Saved some bucks and looks great too!

I have a cargo tray. The one big advantage is spills. With the high lip it should contain any. I guess the mats shown here would absorb them and are cheap to replace. Nice mod guys.

I also carry a small tarp from $ store. for the real shitty loads. It also protects your bumper when getting heavy stuff in.

Thanks, Cardinal, for the SUPER suggestion! I got one mat from Lowes ($15 and change) and just made the one piece for the cargo area (I'll use a blanket when carrying loads over the seats). I did not make the flaps to go up the back seats as the Spare Tire Cover seems to keep the junk from getting in the crack ok.

Thaks, also, to jzerocsk for the helpful tip to remove the Spare Tire Cover and use that as a template for the curvy part.

It took about 10 minutes to make (you know, measure twice cut once ) and looks great!

That's ridiculous, you can get all of that from College Hills for half that price.

Your right, it is. I wish I had taken more time when choosing them. I wanted the floor mats I got because they cover the whole area and have a huge lip all the way around . They are actually molded in the shape of the entire floor board.

Reminds me of Pinterest.

Thank you SO much for posting this. I will be using my back seat religiously & haven't wanted to invest in a 100-200 cover. Amazing and quite frankly very sleek(: great job.

For the guys making a liner for the folddown backseats without having to unroll. Cut two panels following design of the seats,

To keep them up, use some nylon strap/webbing (like spare backpack straps), make a loop around each backseat headrest and staple to the mats (sew if you are crafty).

Velcro by itself will not be sticky enough. It may seem to work, but the first hot day will cause the adhesive to come off and you have drooping mats.

Here is another option at only $20
Sears.com

No cutting required, fit is near perfect as is. It is also long enough that it can completely cover the back of front seats and headrests. This is useful to me as I often pack the car to ceiling height. When done roll it back up and store it. I have the Honda storage tray for day to day and only use this for my both seats done cargo van mode.

I think that Sears mat looks pretty nice too. I might spring for one if I didn't already have an Elemmat.

By the way, I bought my elemmat a few months ago and it does not include that rear bumper guard that you show in your picture, mrnoyb. I didn't expect to get one, since their website doesn't show it either, but I think your picture might mislead some people. Otherwise, nice picture and I really like the Elemmat.

You're correct. The bumper cover doesn't come with the elemmat. It's just a rubber floor runner cut to size. Sorry.

Elemmat FTW! I couldn't live without in. It protects my interior from music stands and mic stands and random jagged metal parts that would have destroyed my interior. Plus, the fact that it has a "slick" surface and not a grippy one makes loading heavy objects much easier because you can push them in. Makes the Fit cargo somewhat like the matrix!

I did the same but went with the foam matting they had at Home Depot. $40 total for the two mats. Cut a little but decided it'd be more protection if I just curved the sides up against the plastics.I may cut the two instead of overlapping them.

Yuppers, have done that with all my cars for decades. Great idea to post it for the masses! Like Ky1eRC don't trim it flush but leave a couple inches up the sides for protecting the plastic. Unlike the factory back matt the carpeted surfaces helps keep things from sliding around.


The same material works very well for mats - easy to cut to shape & they mold well to the contours. Only draw back for that application is that they can tend to shift around depending on how careful you are about getting in.

For some reason I can't see the images from OP's post. Am I alone in this? Can anyone else see them or repost please?

Thanks.

it's not rocket science, post #15 pretty much shows similar finished product.

Be sure you check the material you get doesn't smell or give off fumes. After 8years mine still makes the car smell a little rubberish.

Helps to have a strong pair of utility scissors/ shears to cut the product
