This reproduction is pathetic... It's made from the same material as a cheap picnic table cloth (you know, the red checkered ones?) The only way you will ever get this plastic "table cloth type" mat to lay flat is to glue it down. They do however work well for catching oil spills under your Cougar when turned felt side up. No returns on this product, we suggest no mat is a better alternative than this poor quality reproduction. It's that bad... Please look at our premium quality trunk mat.
