I believe that item has been discontinued. Dev still visits here but not that often. Try sending him some PM.
Maybe we can get the pattern from him and have someone who's good at stitching make up a few. Maybe also the rear compartment cover.
A lot of new members here might be interested.

I bought the last one before he discontinued them. I was speaking to what must have either been a friend or employee of his when I tried to order the rear bin covers as well and he gave me a little write up on how to do it.

"As far as the rear bin cover you can get everything you need at Joann fabrics. You need to purchase
1. Black duck cloth
2. Dirtz snaps Black size 24 5/8
3. Self drilling screws #6x 3/8in
4. Black seam tape for the edges.

What you have to do is remove both your rear bin doors and lay them on a carpeted floor. Take the black duck cloth and lay it on top of the doors. Take some sheers and cut around the top. Make sure to leave about an inch of extra material on the bottom so you can tuck it in. Once that is done you need to use pins to hold in the seams. Then you will need a sewing machine to sew in the seam as you remove the pins as you go along. "

I'm sure the process is the same for the front bin

I’m the seamstress for the forum. I make small upholstered pieces (albeit slowly). Here
I enjoy new projects though. I could make some of these, especially if there’s sufficient interest to warrant investing the time and money in developing patterns and ordering materials.

I wouldn't mind helping in any way that I can, but currently the car is about 7 feet off the ground so I don't even have a frunk to look at until at least next Tuesday or maybe even later.

Thanks to Dev’s idea, and Pwnzor for helping brainstorm design options with me all day today…. I have finished a prototype spare tire bin cover. It doesn’t require any additional holes in the plastics. It attaches to the original hinge and latch points. It will be super quick to open and close, even easier than snaps! I used vinyl material so it will be waterproof.
It’s getting a road test this weekend so I’ll see if there are any surprises. Pictures coming …. as soon as I get back to my phone.

CH - you are the man!! I did not want to mention you by name so I'm glad you picked this up. My thoughts were the Velcro Alfa-Lok if the latch idea doesn't work.
