GSA Factory Luggage Lid Modification

 

I offer the following method of modifying the inside of the top lids (left, right and top trunk) to better hold a variety of items.

Total cost: $25.00 for all three hard cases What Bags: BMW Factory Aluminum Bags, and perhaps many other brands of side/top cases

Why: Ease of access to things inside of the cases and to keep stuff from falling out

Process: Attach the nylon attachment points with epoxy glue versus drilling to attach the holders. Devcon Epoxy color Cream

Netting: Use camping tent pole elasticized shock cord to provide stretch-tension to keep things in place

Cord: Available at specialty camping stores usually at 30 cents per foot.

Nylon Hoop Pad Eyes: $2.75 for package of six from Selectesigns K081310-1 Everett Washington USA 425-252-2149

Pad Eyes Purchase: Most likely you will have to order from a retail store, Selectdesigns does not sell direct

Good idea. Thanks. You can get the small hoops at Ace Hardware.
