Ribbed floor mats

tips4
I make ribbed floor mats using sheets of Evergreen Scale Models styrene corrugated metal siding. Secure a piece of Evergreen siding inside a large container with a lid. Brush or spray a mold release agent on the siding. Next, mix Micro Kristal Klear (or generic white glue) with acrylic paint matching the color of the floor mat. Paint the mixture onto the siding over the release agent with a paintbrush, cover, and allow it to dry for a couple of days.  When thoroughly dry, peel the mat off the mold, trim to shape, and install in your model.
