Industrial Forming has developed a unique Roll-top Cover for the open well in the floor console of Toyota's FJ Cruiser off-road vehicle. The Cover provides a shielded storage area for your electronic appliances (MP3 player, GPS locator, cell phone, watch, etc). Recently a locking option has been added to the cover for better security while you've gone for a swim or the FJ has gone for a swim through the car wash.
The Roll-top Cover is made of a heavy gauge thermoformed plastic ABS base that contains a track for the Roll-top (Tambour) door. The Insert is a snug fit down into the console well. Marine grade hook and loop fasteners engage the top surface of the console and retain the Console Cover in the well. No drilling is required. Installation takes less than five minutes. The Cover can be removed if desired by carefully disengaging the hook and look fasteners. In the case of the new locking cover, self-taping screws are included to more positively secure the insert to the inside walls of the console well.
The tambour door is made of slats attached to a heavy duty marine grade fabric that slides across the top of the console. The slat structure allows the open door to slide down out of the way on the rear side of the console. The door is easily opened with one hand and does not interfere with the factory armrests on the front seats. Three different grades of door slats are offered.
The Panamint model, named after a famous off-road and gold mine area near Death Valley in California is made from black hardcoat anodized 1/8" thick alloy aluminum. The thick hardcoat anodize is most resistant to scratches from jumping dogs or climbing babies. It has been tested to support a 160 lb weight on the Cover. The black brushed hardcoat gives the Cover a very elegant appearance.
