I'm thinking of making my own custom fiberglass cargo cover to fit my MDX, which hasn’t come yet. Similar to the packasport but sized to fit better. The way I’m picturing it is with hinges to one side, hydraulic lifts and an interior light. I’ve been reading up on moldless composite construction techniques which is how the build the Burt Rutan airplanes and custom surfboards. You shape a foam plug to the exact shape you want, overlay the fiberglass onto it, and embed in a layer of epoxy. I estimate the cost to be around $350. Most of my friends think I’m crazy but my biggest concern is what do I do with it after I eventually sell the MDX since I will customize it to suit exactly?
I’m comfortable with most construction techniques but have never worked with fiberglass. Anyone out there have any tips or ideas?
