Mine are 20 yrs old (21 now...Jesus) & still going strong. I wonder if a closed cell foam with a high R-value would be a good alternative for those not wanting the reflectix/silver lined lookYup. Some suppliers are out of one or the other, however.
Ultimately, I agree - they're expensive. I'd rather spend that on a more durable solution, if possible.
Yup, that's an idea.What if you cut plastic sheet or door card out to the correct shape? Then applied Dynamat flat to the shapes. Then just use the same Toyota method to put them back on?
Agreed. Certainly keeps them from fraying or separating at the edges.That's a great idea!
Mine does not even have the drip tray
Grr! Buncha jerks. I hate rats (just the damage, mind you).Mine were still good also till the pack rats got them. Rat bstrds
Sorry to hear that a lot of you guys have to winterize your cars. Can’t imagine having to do that every year. I was actually driving my car last night with the top down, mostly to avoid moving the top and tearing it any further. It was a little chilly out but not a problem with the heater on.Grr! Buncha jerks. I hate rats (just the damage, mind you).
As part of my semi-winterizing, I've tossed peppermint oil sachets (of a sort) into trunks and footwell (or behind seat storage) of any cars that are only seeing periodic use for now.
Fox pee would probably work, but then again... fox pee. =|
The peppermint oil seems to work (knock on matting) - I'm only dealing with mice, however - though if I could choose, I'll sacrifice air filters and engine blankets over wiring damage. Rue the day I should ever find that..
