It's very possible that would work but I don't think (it was a while ago and I don't have the MDX nearby) the inner plastic cover was intended to fix the upholstery in place. The old cover was held in with both glue and staples so I figured I'd re-do what the factory did. Second, the 1/2" foam I used really put a strain on the cover/lid connection. I really had to put some grunt into it for the cover to wrap all the way around so I was - and am - concerned that it might not hold up over time. I hate going back to do jobs that I thought were "good enough" and then failed so I'm a fan of overkill the first time.When I did this on my Pathfinder, I used double sided leather basting tape to hold the leather tight temporarily against the hard plastic form. Then I screwed in the hard plastic under liner that nests inside the form, which permanently holds the leather.
Is there a chance that would work instead of using tiny staples?
