The "Das Schild" I have for my Boxster is great! An absolutely essential product for an Porsche owner! Geoff
I just received mine and took a total of five minutes to install, what a great addition. When closing the hood now it sounds solid and not tinny like before and now have that protective layer that Porsche forgot to install. Great product worth every penny! Thanks Eagleday.com!!
I have front/rear trunk liners installed on my 2001 Boxster S and they have saved me HUNDREDS of dollars ! My next car will be a 997 S Carrera and I would like to have Das Schild installed when new.-Thanks, Dave Duarte
”I received your liner and installed it over the weekend. It's GREAT! Installation only too a few moments and the shield looks great on the trunk lid. I can't wait to show it off at our Porsche Breakfast meeting this coming Saturday. Thanks once again for all your help. David Guardia
” “I just received my 996996 AND BOXSTER FRONT SCHILD and it was designed perfectly. A quality product with a great fit. I'm glad I purchased the product - Thanks Carl Marchetto ,Victor, NY
This is my second. What a great product! Ed - Ormond Beach
I had the full liner on my 997 and thought it not only was great protection but it looked great as well. Arnie P
I purchased your product for my '98 993 series and also for my '06 CaymanS 987 series. Those products were great! Joel A, Eau Claire, WI
I have one on my car, it's awesome because I can load the frunk up and not worry about dinging the hood or scratching the paint on the bottom side of the hood. Only heads up is that if your hood shocks are the least but weak you will know it. Only weighs maybe 1-2lbs. I ordered and use your Das Schild on my 2002 Boxster. They are fantastic and I recommend them to all my Boxster friends. Thank you for such a great product. Jack Hsu Alexandria, VA
**I had received and installed it. It was fairly easy to do-2 push pins required a bit more effort to get in. It looks good ( like a factory part).
Thanks for making them. I suppose they were originally omitted as part of Porsche's weight saving plan. In my opinion, given the small frunk and trunk space and the desire to take the vehicle on trips, the lid (and bottom) liners help preserve the vehicle cosmetically.
** Thanks, installed it yesterday.
The easiest install I've ever had.
Wonderful product. Should be OEM standard.
** I just bought my first Porsche, a 2004 986 Boxster. I just joined rennlist and found these! Thanks so much! I'm having dents in the trunk removed tomorrow.... And hope to never have them again after installing these!!

** The trunk liners were the 1st thing I bought for my boxster - Love them both as we go away for weekends with 2 sets of golf clubsin rear(4 longest sit in front seat w/ the Mrs.) and our overnight canvas bags neetly packet in the front - Sometimes it gets a little tight in closing the lids, but the plastic liners protect both lids!!!!
**Got the liner the other day and popped it in - looks and fits great, my 84 porsche
has only 56k miles on it, always been apprehensive about putting anything in the
trunk, now no issues.
Thanks again - great product , oh and thanks for the T shirt, perfect fit

Hi I purchased one of the lid liners in the Group buy on 24th Oct 15, and it arrived in the UK 11 days later. Great product ( I don't know why Porsche don't fit them from the factory ) it finished the frunk compartment. I highly recommend this product from a trusted supplier and at a great price
I am glad i purchased this year. I get why Porsche may have excluded it for weight reasons...every ounce counts on the track...but as others note, it is a perfect fit, looks like it came with the car and is easy to remove if you need to save weight on the track. I was surprised at the quality frankly. Great feel to it.
** This is my second. What a great product!

> but it looked great as well.
** I thought you’d like to know the liner works great. I’ll try to send a photo if I can the lighting right.
** Thank you so much. Yes that is my correct address. I am happy to pay for these, as I think it was “user error” lol. Yes I pried them out with a trim tool, and it took a fair bit of force, so most of them got mangled. After doing so, I remembered that they needed to aligned in a certain way in order to be inserted easily. I think if had twisted them a quarter turn before trying to pry them out, they would have come out much easier. Please feel free to send me an invoice for the replacements. You guys are awesome.
** I have Das Schilds for my 2 996s. In may I am scheduled to take delivery of my new 997TT in May. I am sure you can guess my question – will a 996 Das Schild fit the 997? I think I know the answer but thought it worth checking. This is a great product!
My order just arrived and I wan't to say thanks again.
I installed everything and they look great.
I was shocked at how fast they arrived.
I purchased a part for my daughters Smart Car fortwo in the states from another company and it took a month and a half to arrive.
I will be sure to pass on how great my experience was.
** Just checking: my car is a 2002 Boxster (base), and these appear to be the correct set of Lid Liners. Please correct me if I am mistaken. (No logo option available, right?) Thanks for making these very useful products; the car had a pop-up dent when I acquired it, and I see how easily those occur!

Love it...have bought your lid liners for all of the Cayman and Boxsters I have had...(4 total).
That with my weathertech liners and frunk and trunk liners...the cars look great and protected..
Love your liners and that it takes 5 minutes to install..Thanks,Rich
** I can't help with the cooler, but did want to get a plug in for das schild (the plastic hood liner). Definitely worth it, just for the peace of mind when the trunk is full.
I completely agree. I literally ordered mine on the same day that I put down my deposit and I installed on the day that I took delivery. I've had them in every Porsche that I have owned and would not be without one.
(For those following this thread, Das Schild by LId Lifter is a brilliant protector for the frunk lid that weighs virtually nothing and installs solidly in about a minute without tools.)
** Can't recommend enough the purchase of one of these!! Adds protection and a bit of clean up to the look inside the frunk. I put a Porsche sticker on the shield to make it look cool.
Inexpensive clean mod to add some class to an already classy car!!
** Great product ( I don't know why Porsche don't fit them from the factory ) it finished the frunk compartment. I highly recommend this product from a trusted supplier and at a great price with the Group discount. The shipping cost to the UK was very reasonable.
**The trunk liners were the 1st thing I bought for my boxster - Love them both as we go away for weekends with 2 sets of golf clubsin rear(4 longest sit in front seat w/ the Mrs.) and our overnight canvas bags neetly packet in the front - Sometimes it gets a little tight in closing the lids, but the plastic liners protect both lids!!!!
It is simply amazing what you can pack in this car - I learned my trade of packing from my old 70s MGB
Not feeling additional resistance when pushing down to close is why we damage the lid
Well, my golf bag was already in the rear trunk so she just put the grocery bags on top of the clubs and smushed the trunk closed (she didn't know there was a front trunk). You probably know where I'm going w/ this....When she came back to my house, I could tell that something was wrong. She walked me out to the car and, with tears in her eyes, showed me the dents and dimples in the outer surface of the rear trunk created by the groceries stacked on top of the golf bag.
** I did on my 996. The fit and finish is great, and matches the OEM plastics finish very well. I primarily did it because I have seen damage done on hoods from unsecured flying crap in the luggage compartment, and made more sense to protect the inside of the hood for a mere $150 (I bought it directly from them at a PCA event), than face a potential big repair expense down the line. I'm also not affiliated and highly recommend the product.

Three issues ago I started a new feature that would highlight some of the modifications that I’ve been making to my 2014 Cayman S since I purchased it last October. The modifications that I’m gradually making can be done to most other Porsche models. My hope is that my efforts can inspire you to explore the options that are available to you to further enhance your Porsche by showing you what’s possible.
Additional future modifications that I’m considering include adding a third radiator, new performance muffler from FabSpeed, as well as exploring the 3.8 liter 911 engine swap package that is being offered by BGB Motorsports out of Florida. Before jumping into any of these modifications I need to do quite a bit of research and long term planning. Making significant changes of this type can affect the resale value of the vehicle and Porsche dealership may not be able to certify it for a trade in. So I need to weigh my options and decide how long I will be keeping the car for before embarking on any of these projects.
One of the selling points I made to my wife when I had decided to buy my first Cayman was that it actually a great deal of storage space for a sports car. We had never owned a car without some sort of backseats no matter how minimal they were. So when my wife saw my salesman actually get into and fit in the “frunk” of the Cayman, she was amazed. While I have not put a wheel barrow in mine like Jeff Walton, we have used the Cayman to bring home a large amount of paper goods like paper towels and toilet paper from shopping sprees at Target. We have even used it for several long road trips with plenty of room for luggage and the occasional purchase made along the way.
While the storage areas in the Cayman are generous, they are somewhat unprotected and require some finishing. Luckily this can be accomplished with a few purchases and very little effort. And like many of the modifications I’m doing, they are relatively inexpensive. Again these modifications are available for many Porsche models. Technically speaking these are modifications since I’m not altering the performance of my car, I’m simply enhancing my car. Call them what you will, but here is what I did to my storage compartments.
The first thing I did was to purchase a custom “frunk” lid liner from the Lid Liner Corp. This company did go by the name Das Shild. The company has moved to Florida, but manufacturers the same high quality merchandise as they did before. The parts they make are often referred to as “the missing part”. Once you see what I talking about you instantly ask yourself “why didn’t Porsche just put these on every car?” The front storage compartment known affectionately known as the “frunk” is missing a piece that would prevent luggage and purchases carried there from puncturing the metal hood if this area is filled just past capacity. This is where Lid Liner comes in.
Lid Liner makes lightweight ABS liners that easily attach with clips to the underside of the hood. When I say easily, I mean under 5 minutes with no tools. Not only does this liner protect your hood, its looks great. It looks like it should be there, hence the “missing part” reference. Here is a photo of my 2014 Cayman S before installing the lid liner.
This is the underside of the hood before the lid liner is installed.
Here is the hood with the lid liner installed. I think in the time it took me to write this sentence, I was done installing it. Now I can close my “frunk” without worrying about puncturing the hood and it looks great. This costs about $200. Lid Liner offers this product for the following Porsches:
911 Model Years 1974- 1998
986 Model Years 1997- 2004
996 Model Years 1999- 2004
997 Model Years 2005- 2009
Boxster Model Years 2005- 2009
Cayman Model Years 2005- 2009
981 Cayman Model Years 2014- Present
981 Boxster Model Years 2012- Present
991 Carrera Model Years 2012- Present
Prices vary by model and the in the case of the Boxster there are actually two pieces, one for the front and one for the rear. Both of these pieces cost about $300. You can purchase the lid liner products directly from the Lid Liner Corp. or buy them from SuncoastParts.com.

** Got my Das Schild and installed it (took about 2 minutes). Looks very nice and clean, and leaves me feeling less nervous than I usually do closing the hood when the trunk has too much junk in it (like it does now).
