You know..... the more I think about it, the more I'm thinking that black wouldnt look bad either. Not as clean as tan, but would still work.

I'm going to put the old lady onto this and see what she can come up with.

my suggestion would be to bunch the extra elastic to one side fold it over itself and sew it together. That way it looks clean, wont stick out, and it is tight again.

NFC!! I was trying a google search last night - pretty difficult when you don't know what it is you're looking for.

I always called those 'toggles'. But you'd have to cut your netting to get them on and through the hole.

Maybe I'll use the Zilla as an example tonight of what can be done with the tie-wraps.

I didn't have to cut the net. I just pulled the bands and slid the "toggles" right on.

Just put a black one on. Slid it right on, nice and tight. You will get a loop that hangs out, but I just tucked it down the side of the net, unnoticeable. If someone DID use the nets, this would be a good way to tighten it based on how much they stuffed in there.

I never have put anything in those. GM should have made "pockets" in the seatbacks instead of the nets.

For those of you that do decide to use the ...uhm...fastener thingies, you could always just paint them with the interior paint BillBoost always uses. That is, if the black is an issue for you...
