Partition net retrofit

Post by makzimum » Tue May 04, 2021 9:20 am

I'm interested in trying to retrofit the factory partition net in my 2020 maxi life. I've had a read of this thread about it but it seems in this case there were already blanked off points to swap for the hanger parts. Mine doesn't have anything there at all currently. Has anyone had a go at this retrofit when there have been no blanked off points to start with?

If the trim is missing the blanked off points, you'd probably need to replace it with the older version that does have them. You'd then need to weld in bolts into the chassis that were at the correct points to line up with the trim.

I guess I'll be going for a third party metal partition then!

Well, the OEM one does have its merits. Someone is going to have to weld something onto the chassis, whatever you use, otherwise it's not going to do much in terms of safety.

I was thinking along the lines of the one Travall make. Looks a pretty solid fit. No modifications required.
