rear cargo net/cover

Had a question, my stock cargo cover is shot, I have it stored away just for the sake of having the factory cover, but I was looking for one. I found one on ebay, but it is from 1990 s4, is there any chance of this being compatible?

or does anyone have one for sale that would fit a 1980?

Why not just get yours redone at an Upholstery Shop? Mike (DanglerB) just posted that he is having his done in Marine Grade Canvas. You might see how his came out.

yah, I was going to have the bottom of the carpet in the trunk fixed anyway, so it might not hurt to have it fixed rather than purchase a new one. I am not even sure how they fit in to the trunk, and since my trunk is locked shut, I need to figure out that little fiasco first, I am going to retry the red key now, but it is the black key with light that i lost.

Your not re-keying the Red Key. Your going to re-key the hatch lock tumbler "using" your Red Key. There is a way to pop open the lock from climbing on the inside. I had to do this when i first bought my Euro. I had the same issue.

will that one i posted from ebay fit? I asked the guy selling it, he had not idea, figured you guys might be the authority.. it is 50 bucks, def cheaper than getting one fixed. I just dropped off the rear deck carpet. the under side is like burlap or something, and it was falling apart, causing all sorts of mess and debris, I had it in the back of my truck and i drove by the upholstery place today finally and dropped it off.

60 bucks, he removes the binding around the edge, glues piece of headliner foam to the backside, and then stitches on a new binding around the edge. well worth 60 bucks to me.. can't say running a sewing machine is my strong suit :P

Cover is sitting in my living room right now, but busy time, only able to type messages spread wisdom. Its not the taking the picts, its finding the camera and putting the picts on the PC and uploading.

I bought a super ratty, but complete cargo cover from 928Intl for $75 and paid $75 to have it redone in SunBrella marine grade canvas.

There is a cross piece just behind the rear seats if upright, and the other end attaches to the hatch to raise up with it automatically when opened.

I will have to put mine in tomorrow and test fit it.. hatch is locked shut.. aka I am going to have to crawl in like a rodent to see if it works and fits etc.. what purpose does the zipper on the cover serve?

With the seats down in back it hangs down and you unzip to get stuff I think from the front of the car. Its been 25 years since I had one, so take with a grain of salt.

Well maybe we can get you to take some pics when it's done

I also hate that burlap crap on the underside. I think I'll do the same and have an upholstery place redo the backsideon both rear and pass undercarpet.

yah that stuff is a total mess. when i got the black car the other day i stripped out the carpets to clean and vac and it looked like a farmer was feeding cows in the rear hatch. the carpet was totally smoked, and the carpets behind the seat didnt have burlap stuff, they had a black rubber coating (similar to the stuff over the burlap) But that black stuff was all dried out and crumbling too

Did you ever get a chance to take pics of that cargo cover... ? I dropped my rear carpet off to get done and apparently it got burried, and he is finishing it this week or next, so that was like a month ago. I think i will have him re do my cargo cover also, but I am kind of curios about it. There are some strings or something on it? I am not sure if they are strings, or if they were supposed to be like an elastic type cord that has some stretch? if so, mine are def crispy and there is no stretch to them.

was the cord you got on your junk cover shot when you got it? I want to drop mine off, i Just am not sure what and how to explain it to him because I am not totally sure how it works. I know there are plastic pockets where the thing clips or twists into. just the actual mechanics of it have me confused.

Cord is normal bungee cord you can get at any Home Depot or Harbor Freight.

I too had to gain the advice of users here on the operation of that cover. I have a thread here on just that cover.
