Hatchbag - Trunk/boot liner

Hi there

Just thought I'd pop by and show off my TAILORED trunk liner for my SportX.
Bought it from a company called "Hatchbag" in England. They ship internationally. Great for lugging around dirty boots, strollers, pets or gardening equipment or anything else. Made of PVC and is easy to wipe down.
Here's the link to the SportCross hatchbag: http://www.hatchbag.co.uk/product.php?xProd=654

I ordered mine with the folding rear seat split (they split the same way in both the RHD England and in LHD countries) and the tailgate-cover.
It all attaches with high strenght velcro to the carpeting and walls as well as with velcro straps around the headrests.

Anyway. Really impressed with the fitment in our very convoluted luggage area. They'll even punch holes for the speakers if you want, and have a variety of odor-control pet mats and stuff too.
Anyway. Here are some pics.






And another pic I found on the web, showing a grey one without the rear seat split.

Greetings from the States.

Being a full-on fan of Top Gear, in true form: I have one of those. It's called an F-250...lol

It's fully carpeted, just as our Sport Crosses are, btw...hehe

Seriously, very nice. Thumbs up.

Another update.
Seeing as I've always been annoyed at the bad lighting in the trunk, and seeing as the hatchbag completely covers the one light that is there, I bought some cheap LED bars from IKEA, that happened to run on 12 Volts. They're called "LEDBERG", if anyone are interested. You can connect up to three of them in line, but I stuck with just one.
Made a HUGE difference!




They are connected to the stock light and turn on when I open the hatch and turn off if I close it, or if I switch them off with the switch on the stock light.

That's actually pretty cool. Considering you're someone who actually uses their car's utility space, that's a perfect product for you

Nice

I use the trunk space, every day. Not to put muddy stuff in, but still...winks...

Thus, the Ford...

As an ongoing update, of sorts: Sasha still has not run across a situation she can't handle, with aplomb.

My memory bank is devoid of a car that has passed us on the highway.

What a drive, indeed.

High praise, from a driving enthusiast.

When it comes to trucks, only the bare necessities are important to me: 8' bed, 4WD and a torquey engine... The only reason I have one is because I need it.

Everyone is buying 4 door, short bed trucks now... I'd rather have a SportX.

So would I. I'm lucky enough to have both options. My Ford is a 2000 F-250 Extra Cab. 5.4, Auto, with a Gear Vendor Overdrive set up. Effectively, a 6 speed.

That is awesome, thanks for sharing!

I've hauled lots of things in my sportx, but nothing like all that firewood. But I suppose that liner would give me the confidence to do so.

And the hatchback light upgrade is next on my list. Much appreciated!

Hey Nougatti, how did you get the wire from the LED bar down to the stock light? I thought I would ask before taking things apart for it looks like it will be a PITA.

There are three little clips at the rear of the headliner that can be removed for added flexibility. The stock light pops off with a flathead. I also undid the screw at the left hand side, where the tonneau cover hitches itself at the outer edge. Do all that, and the rest is just a matter of hidden clips which give when you pull on the panel, but do not break. Thus you can just pop it back into place when you're done. Got some pics as well, but I'm on my phone now and can't upload them. I'll do it in the morning.

Got it, thanks! That sounds easy enough. I'll check it out later when it cools down, currently it's 102F with heat index. (38.8C)
