CHEAP AND EASY CAR FLOOR MATS

Post by STEVE on Wed Sep 03, 2014 2:50 pm

Hi Guys
A cheap and easy way to make Floor mats for your rides.

What you need:
PC/Printer
Tamiya wide masking tape
Tamiya Matt Clear (or equivalent)
Spray Adhesive (or similar - Pritt will even work)

Step 1:
Source images off the intergoogle, nearly all the major car manufacturers and custom/classic clubs have shops you can source images from.
Once you find some,its a bit of a guessing game to get the right size, so a couple of test pages will be needed, but once done, place them on on a page using Word and print then out.

Step 2:
Using the printed images as a guide, place tamiya wide masking tape in the same area and flatten down and run that page through the printer again.

Hey Presto, Car mats that have a bit of texture to them!
Dont touch the images, as they will smugde. Leave to dry for a few minutes

Step 3:
Spray the images with Flat Clear and leave to dry for a couple of hours, then cut them out and use spray adhesive or something similar to affix to your models interior

As you can see above, they look quite natty in this Chevy 3100's cab.

The nice thing is, the Tamiya tape gives them the perception of texture, and they dont just look like flat pieces of paper stuck on the floor.

Easy peasy
