Hilux Bakkie Cover




Accessorising Your Hilux Bakkie Cover

A Hilux bakkie cover is a must have for all you Hilux owners. Why? They keep the bed of your bakkie safe and secure, both on the road and when parked away at the side. They deter potential thieves, and even make your bakkie look good!

Most Hilux bakkie covers look similar, with dark or neutral colours. This is in part to keep them looking cleaner for longer, and in part to appeal to a wider audience. You might find some Hilux bakkie covers in wacky colours down at the market, online, or at specialist stores, but be careful with the quality – a lot of them will be knock-offs.

So, if you want to accessorise your Hilux bakkie cover, how do you go about it?

Design Transfers

You can buy a multitude of designs that can be ironed on to material. You can find pretty much any design that you could dream of, in all shapes, sizes, and colours, and if there is something missing you can design your own!

For small transfers, you can purchase specialist sheets to put in a normal printer. You can then create your design on your computer, and print it off straight away. The only downside with this method is that they don't tend to last too long. If you want a transfer design for your Hilux bakkie cover that lasts a long time, then it would be best to send it off to a professional.

There are many companies online, and probably a few in your local area too, that handle transfer printing. They are used in everyday life, for all sorts of clothes and textiles. Because of this, the company is going to know the best makeup of the design, and use the right materials to make it last. With some of these companies you can design your own, but with others you must choose from a gallery of their own. Always look into this first.

Bleaching and Dying

If you want a different colour for your Hilux bakkie cover, why not dye it? For the darker Hilux bakkie covers, you will probably have to bleach them first, but this is neither difficult nor the bleach hard to come by. You can pick it up at most DIY stores, and stores that provide home maintenance and cleaning items.

When you are dying your Hilux bakkie cover, you will need to make sure that the dye you get is substantial enough. Most dyes will say on the packet which materials they can be used on, and how many times they need to be dyed in order to get specific shades and tones. In some cases you might need to dye your Hilux bakkie cover a number of times before you get the right colour that you want. Keep this in mind when working out a budget, because you don't want it to end up costing you a fortune.

If you are going to bleach and dye your Hilux bakkie cover, it would be wise to check with a professional first. You need to know that these methods won't harm the cover in any way, whether it is from removing a waterproof layer, or making the material brittle. You also need to double check that there aren't any chemicals in the Hilux bakkie cover that are going to mix badly with the bleach and the dye. You don't want a disaster on your hands!
