MeanSling is in the middle of development of an interior liner (carpet) kit. Its a little different in the type of material (carpet) than what you have seen to date. We want to offer a product that gives the look of quality automotive carpet but with all the weather resistance the SlingShot has been designed to except. You will be able to wash and clean your SlingShot just as you always have and the carpet can stay in place. Our first prototype samples (9 pcs total) will be here this week. What we are looking for is what you, the SlingShot owner, is really wanting. What we are looking for is feedback for what you would like to see, what sections of the Slingshot you want to have covered and most importantly what price would you like to pay. Please keep in mind that I do not have a retail price at this time. Until the samples are received, evaluated and fastener system confirmed to work, I cannot lock down a production cost. Your feedback will help to lock this down better.
If you don't mind take a moment and answer the questions below. Corresponding number with a simple answer.
(1) What parts of the SlingShot would you like to see covered ?
(2) Would black carpet with colored binding (edge material) be OK ? Red, blue, orange, black
(please understand that color matching carpet is currently not possible and limiting binding colors will also be needed to start. No custom colors)
(3) What price point would you like to see your ideal carpet/liner kit ( based on question #1) ?
(4) How important would easy removal be if carpet is designed to be washable while installed ?
To secure the kit on the vertical surfaces and to keep floor mats from sliding (liability issue) we have to use metal grommets and the some existing factory torx head fastener locations. with the removal of these fasteners (limited numbers used) the carpet/liners can then be removed easily. We DO NOT want to use snap fasteners as this would require you to drill and mount male snaps to the plastic interior panels of your SlingShot. MeanSling will always try to limit the amount of modifications required to install our designed products.
We will post images this weekend as we get the parts installed. YOu will get to see what we are doing at that time...
We just want to supply you guys the best part possible at a reasonable price for all of us...
