    I was having a discussion with a fellow rider that also picked up a Shifty. We were talking about ideas for lining the interior of the top box and the only great ideas I could find on here is the guy that did his in cowhide (totally cool):

    and there was a guy that did a nice job with some velcro using M-Tac organizers on the lid. I can't find that post so far.
    Does anyone have some great ideas for lining your box to protect putting a helmet or other goodies inside?

    My HB Exclusive came from the factory with a very nice foam type liner that was removable. Maybe try to find out what they use. Or go to a hobby shop ( Hobby Lobby ) and buy some foam or felt and make it yourself.

    Go to a craft or fabric shop and get some adhesive felt sheets. I did this on my '16 and then again on my '19.

    The drop in liners look like they would do the trick and those zippered led organizers look like a REALLY great idea!

    Nuther idea is to pick up some non-slip tool drawers' bulk liners, cut to size and use that... All depends on what you're trying to achieve with lining ie. why you're doing it - ymmv...:deal

    Get some surf board grip mat. I used it on the top exterior on mine and it keeps items from falling off its quiet and waterproof with adhesive. It’s on amazon and in different sizes and shapes. Simple and cheap

    Just looked at Aliexpress for chinese knockoff farkles and I did see some box liners you may take a look at.

    Double-sided super-sticky tape & car-roof-head-liner (foam backed h/d fabric). Easy peesy.

    I used the HF fatigue mat squares. My box is a Jesse so I cut out all the geometric pieces on card stock that would fit the inside then transferred to the foam mat. Used gorilla tape on the back side to form all the pieces together and then added a few strips of self adhesive Velcro to secure to the box. It came out looking OEM and works perfect. Easily removed in one piece and insulates well too.

    I used a yoga mat purchased from Goodwill ($3.00) and spray adhesive.
