options for battery box cover

Doing a color change paint job on my 1995 D90 soft top. The truck had a rhino lined battery/seat box cover. It doesn't look good for removing the rhino lining. My first Defender was a 1997 and it had the black vinylish cover but over time the glue came out and it got ratty. Do I have any other options? I just don't like rhino lining. It's my personal preference.

I'm going with charcoal. Please advise if I'm going to end up in the land rovers that suck thread.

when you open the door you see that rhino lining which many like but I do not. I don't ever plan to have the truck disassembled like this again. But your reaction is pretty reasonable. I understand that.

Just put one of the OEM rubber seat box covers over the seat box.

Use a Wright rubber mat, it covers everything an deaden the noise.
Exmoor do one as well. They're costy but worth it.

The Exmoor one looks pretty good. I need the transmission tunnel piece anyway as mine is trashed and I need floor mats too. I'd prefer if the floor mats were not attached as they do need to be replaced periodically but this is a good solution. Thanks CDN.
