    DIY: How To Make A Trunk Lid Liner

    Materials used:
    1) 1994 Toyota Camry trunk lid liner
    2) Scissor
    3) Box cutter
    4) Industrial strength Velcro (Lowes item #184582)

    This is how the back of my trunk lid looks like with Dynamat applied:

    The Dynamat works very well, but in my opinion, it looks tacky. So I set off to make a trunk lid liner to hide the ugliness.

    I modified the trunk lid liner from the back of a 94 Toyota Camry LE to make my own trunk lid liner. Obviously, the liner from the Camry will not be a direct fit as the bolts used to hold the liner in place do not exist in the Corolla. The dimensions are pretty close but some trimming is involved.

    1) First, take the Camry liner and clean it very so the Velcro can stick.

    This is the Velcro product:

    2) Line up the liner to the trunk latch.

    3) Stick Velcro on both the back of the liner and the trunk lid.

    4) Now, use your scissor and box cutter to trim the excess liner.

    5) Here is the result:

    It was a good idea but the edges look a bit rough especially since you can see the dynamat at the bottom.

    True. I just realize that I took the photo from an angle aiming up from the ground. Here is a better picture looking straight on. It's not as apparent.

    Not bad, but I agree with Unique that the edges look a little rough. Still, I never would have thought of using a liner from an old Camry.

    Looking good Plu. Do you have Dynamat anywhere else in the car? What was the result? I'm thinking of putting some in my door panels and in the headliner.

    I have dynamat all over the trunk, speakers, doors and the front floor.

    I found that the dynamat on the trunk lid did the most difference as it made the rattles that come with the bass go away and almost doubles the bass felt inside the car. The dynamat on the door makes the road noise reduced like I added another door panel to the door.
