    How's the yoga mat holding up?

    For those who have used yoga mat for the fender Wells, how's it holding up? Would you do anything different?
    The local Walmart has them on roll back and was wondering if I should pick some up.
    Thanks

    After about 2 years and 4K miles, my yoga mat is still good. This weekend I pulled wheels and checked the suspension for the 400-mile drive to HB, so I looked carefully. See ya at HB11.

    What kind of yoga mat are people using for the wheel wells? There's lots of different materials and thicknesses out there. Also how is it all attached?

    I do quite a bit of forum lurking and searches for solutions to my hang-ups during the build, but it never crossed my mind to do a search for "yoga mat."

    Just when I though I had a handle on the finer points of my build along come yoga mats....excellent idea though - adding it to the list!

    The mat that I'm looking at is a mat that Walmart has at a reduced price for $4.87 a roll. It's pretty thin but I don't think it will need to be any thicker for this purpose since I'm going to be using it in conjunction with bed liner. Plus the thin mat should be easier to fit in the wheel well.

    I agree that thin is okay. All it's doing is cushioning pebbles which don't have much mass. The yoga mat I've used is 1/4" but that's probably overkill. Or, any closed-cell foam will work but I found yoga mats were cheaper and I didn't have to buy a huge roll.

    BTW, I learned this from the other FFR Roadster builders and used yoga mat in my Mk3 and it's still okay after 9 years and now the 4th owner.

    .....and here I thought the yoga mat would only be needed to train getting in and out of my coupe. Added to the list!
