Tray liners and dividers

Recommended Posts

The slot ford has provided in the tray is 75mm wide which makes it hard to make a lightweight divider (as most people want the divider to be the height of the wheel arch).

I managed knocked up a divider this morning in 10mins with materials I had laying around.

I used stick of 240 x 45 (10'x2') oregon (old builders plank) as this would be loose in the slots I nailed a small piece of 19mm maple to the end at the slots. To stop the plank rattling I used a very thin wedge.

You will notice the base of the slot in the tray has a chaffer, to prevent the plank placing a point load on this little bit plastic a 10mm chaffer was cut to the base of the plank.

As the plank was 240 ill prob look at cutting it down to about 5mm above the wheel arches.

This solution is a bit rough and quick but does the job. The height is good if you have an esky or items with a high centre of gravity.

This is what I was thinking... ford designed it to be simple and to just use planks.. why make it complicated .. if you want it air fairy cover the plank in carpet.. just remember its a ute not a hatchback before you apply the carpet hey ... heheheee

Made the rear divider this afternoon.

I got routered a 14mm wide by 10mm deep slot near the centre of the board to line up with the slots in the tub. Im going to make a 350mm wide by 200mm high divider to slide into the slot to stop stuff rolling around. I intend to make two slots in the divider the near the cab to make 3 partitions to fit a couple of plastic tubs for ropes etc.

Anybody who is interested in getting their ute carpet liners and dividers is $80.00.

I still have not worked out the freight for interstate buyers, at the moment it is only local pick up in Geelong.

This carpet is marine black rubber backed carpet with pile on top, comes with two dividers which is also carpeted.

The dividers will give you three compartments for storing you goods without sliding everywhere.

The dividers are high enough above the wheel archers to slide a 2400 x 1200 sheet across and still have the storage underneath.

mate... those posts are from 2004. It's unlikely he's even still thinking about the fact he used to do them, let alone the possibility of it still being an option.
