I've never done it but I plan to.

This is what I'm planning on doing to mine (to the professional: if there is an easier way let me know).

1) take off the trunk lid
2) make patterns from the lid using cardboard then transferring those to fabric.
3) once everything is sew together attach them with velcro or double sided tape (tape may come off in the heat, I think velcro)

Hope this gives you a starting point.

I bought my strips from Wal-Mart.

You can the difference between this and regular velcro.

Like Stankin stated, it has loops that you can see where as regular velcro looks like material.

I think it says something about extra strength or industrial strength. It's in the fabric dept.

Hope that helps.

another thing is that this stuff doesnt bend really...it comes in strips of 2'' wide but you wouldnt need anything that powerful...they have 1'' wide wih adhesive on the back which is pretty damn strong..used to hang the headliners in yachts with them....not fabric headliners btw they were board headliners...check around on the computer...with the info you have here you will know the stuff when you see it

ON THE LID, IT'S JUST SCUFFED AND GLUED. AROUND MY PUMPS IT IS THE FACTORY CARDBOARD, I JUST REMOVED THE OLD CARPET AND GLUED THE CRUSH IN IT'S PLACE.
