Tonneau Cover Idea :)

Tucked the edge of the cover in behind the rear set fits perfectly.

But it looks pretty tacky....it takes away from the "smooth" look that the tonneau area should have. Not to mention. is it going to wear the leather on the back of the seat out prematurely?

Am I missing something here?
The front flap of the cover is SUPPOSED to be inserted down behind the seat and the rear edge of the cover gets tucked unde the edge of the trunk.

but this is RIGHT BEHIND the seat. the tonneau is suppose to be tucked behind the wall that the back seat is braced against, not against the seat itself

OK, but what's the advantage of tucking it in right behind the seat itself rather than where it belongs? Just for appearance?

If it doesn't get tucked in where it belongs, you're going to increase the odds that it won't stay there and it might start to allow the wind to get under the flap and run the risk of blowing the cover off at speed.

Maybe I'd do that if I didn't have the windrestrictor back there, nah I take that back. Not even then.

that's what I was trying to say. And as far as appearance goes, doing it like it is in the OP's picture does NOT enhance appearance at all...

To avoid having to make such weighty decisions, I sold my tonneau cover.

Would you please provide a pic of the back end of your tonneau where it meets the trunk? I'd be interested in seeing how that looks as the tonneau doesn't appear to have sufficient "over lap" to be tucked in, the way you have the front end tucked in.
