Default Carpet like trunk liners

I have yet to find anyone making a trunk liner so I have contacted a local interior guy and he says he can make me a trunk liner for the bottom and top and add some mesh pockets to the back wall for $300.
The walls will be glued to the trunk and the floor and back wall will have a backing board and be removable if it needs to be moved for work.

What do you think??

I think you can do it yourself by buying the carpet liner online and picking up some spray carpet glue and save a bundle plus have the satisfaction of knowing you did it yourself.

I took a chunk of carpet, laid it in the trunk, traced it and cut it out. Didnt glue it, just a "mat" for the bottom of the trunk.

If you are looking to spend $300, I would spent $80 and just get the trunk bag, sew some velcro to the bottom and top of bag and attach to the trunk so that when you open, you have a multi-purpose organizer. You can take it out of the trunk when traveling or leave it in for those short trips.

I have the trunk bag, it's just that a bag. A cheap vinyl gym bag that has no pouches to organize/hold stuff.

I need/want something that is soft and goes up the sides and has some pouches to hold my phone and charger and spare glasses. I want it soft and up the walls when I travel so my cameras and other items don't get bashed/bounced around and scratched. That vinyl bag just isn't going to protect it like I want.

As far as me doing it myself, I would up to the point of sewing through backer board and having it look professional

Agreed. I would look at carpet runner style carpet and see if you can come up with some template. You can buy a bunch of carpet for $100, sew in some pouches, etc.

Good Luck
