Boot liner pushbuttons

The boot liner is held into place with velcro which is glued to the boot. Of course the part adjacent to the exhaust manifold tends to let go..

Inspired by the way Lotus solved this on the Elise I searched for push buttons. So I ended up with the following equipment to try and replace the velcro.

img

To start off I put the liner in place and used a drill to make a hole through the liner and the fiberglass.

img

Then I got the back part of the pushbutton which is in rivet style.

img

Put the rivet in the rivet gun..

img

And put it in the hole in the fiberglass.

img

so you end up with half of the push button on the fiberglass.

img

Before putting the button in place, make sure the hole is big enough in the liner.

img

Then you get the button part.

img

And place it on the liner.

img

img

I got a special tool to put them in place, but I'm not too happy with it. It works, but not very well.

img

Now the button part is in place on the liner.

img

And it seems to work :)

img

I ended up putting 4 pushbuttons on the liner. It seems to keep it in place very well and is still easy to remove.
