Hello all,

We all know how expensove the E Accessories are, however, I have found a few alternatives that do a great job with minimal cost.

I found a bungee set @ National Wholesale Liquidators for all of 90 cents.
It consists of 4, 12 inch bungees all linked together by an arm or hub, so it
appears like an octopus tentacles. Anyway, I very easily connected the bungee ends to the loops and it looks & works fantastic.

Additionally, instead of the cargo tray accessory, I found @ Target
a 4' x 23" "Floor Mat" that has a strong pile carpet on top and a solid
leak proof rubber mat on the bottom...it was only $9 and it looks great
and fits perfectly. It is strong enough to handle drops, spills whatever.
I figure with these 2 alternatives, I saved @ $100 for the same functionality as the Official Element Accessories.
Now I can put the money toward the Arm Rest.

I found another alternative for the bungees:

At Family Dollar stores, they sell for $1, a smalll cargo net,
16 x16, that connects to the loops...and creates a true bungee netting
that I like better than my original post.

Also @ Family Dollar I found a roll of the black no slip matting, $1,
that many of you have been looking for to use in the front dash
cargo trays. I also found a roll at Home Depot, however it was a few $$$ more than Family Dollar.

Regards.

Yeah I found the same black no slip tool box matting at Wal-mart and it was around $8. What section of Family Dollar was the netting located?

I found the Cargo Netting in the small Automive/Hardware section @ Family Dollar.
However, I must ammend my previous post...the cargo netting ended up
being to big/loose, however, I very easily undid the netting and i found that the netting was actuall 1 big 20ft section of prime "black" bungee cord. So I printed up the install directions for the Bungee Cords from H&A and simply ran the cords through the loops and attached them to 2 cord locks that I had previously picked up @ Sports Authority for $1.59.
The 20 ft of cord was enough for both seatbacks with plenty to spare.
So the total cost of my bungee cord was:
Cargo Netting = $1.00
Cord Locks = $1.59
Total = $2.59
