Is a bootlip available?

Hi again

Is a bootlip protector available for the Terri?
(like the picture of the subaru at http://subaru.com.au/explore/foreste...ccessory=18942). This saves scratching the bumper getting things in and out of the cargo bay.

Not that I know of.

My father in law had a motor trimmer custom design one for him.

I'm gettin sick of puttin this in threads, will you blokes ALL go and get this stuff now!

http://www.stonegard.com.au/main5.html

This stuff is great, and I have this on my tailgate loading lip, as well as covering the whole front of the Territory (Also on my GT-P) including all lights - hell...these guys will cover your whole damn car in it if that's what you want!! It is damn-near invisible too.

These guys will no doubt send you a piece which you could fit yourself with a bit of mucking around, if you don't live in Sydney/Melbourne/Canberra.

Re: Is a bootlip available?

Thats great Burnsi, but the question related to a boot lip.

Stone guard looks good, however, I don't think it would protect
against the corner of a heavy metal tool box or the extremeties of a metal pram that I load into my terri regularly.

Others may have other work related gear which they load and could be heavy enough to damage a stone guard protected rear bumper.

But I am considering it for the front.

Re: Is a bootlip available?

I have stoneguard in most of the normal places they put it, including the on the rear cargo area.

However I also brought a Takla load liner that is water proof and covers all of the plastic area of the cargo area, right up the back seats, folds down to cover the load lip and covers the plastic bit on the rear door as well. That small piece is the only difficulty as when it is on as they sent it to me you cannot open the window part separately. They are looking into it and are going to send me a remade one, as their designer did not realise the door opened in 2 ways.

The only problem I have is getting the Velcro to stick to the new plastic, apart being fitted in very well and great padding; it sticks to plastic just under the cargo shelf with Velcro. New cars have trouble with being very slick and some coating protection I had put on when I brought the car stops the Velcro from sticking well. In time this will get sorted out.

The load liner is expensive $550 plus $40 to get the longer length is well worth it. Make the back of my Territory look like a nice padded cell. LOL

This is how the Takla load liner cover the boot lip, with lots of good padding and its waterproof. On top of it is the Ford cargo liner, but its not as good, however I have it sitting on top of the Takla one.

Tool box no. Pram...maybe if the edges weren't sharp. The stonegard would only potect the occaisional knock/scrape from a blunt object.

Thanks - Yep - I need a rear bootlip. (Not glad wrap for cars :-). Different products for different requirements. BTW - I am using a rubber backed picnic rug as a bootlip at the moment - seems to be working so far.
