i just had my back glass removed and noticed the two pieces of trim on each corner of the package tray ( inside coner by back glass ) are busted..not sure if anyone can tell me where to get some..

also, the package tray itself is real britle, ive heard where you can get these but should i really get another if its going to be this flimsy again..i was thinking of installing some mdf board so i can put some speakers on there..then having it upholstered..what do you think??

on that note i cant seam to figure out where the factory speakers were mounted, where they under the dash, or did it some how come straight out of the radio..

please: opinions, recomendations, options, suggestions, all welcomed..

What year (although in may not make a dif)? 3RD Gen I assume from the section.

If so, the underside of the package tray (inside the trunk) you can look up and see the cut-out in the metal for speakers. The center cut out is for the optional rear defroster.The front speaker consisted of the single center speaker on the dash top. I believe that the rather rare option STERIO front speakers were mounted in the two kick panels.

Package Trays, page 66. Standard (solid) and "Mesh" (for speakers to play through).:)
and insulation.

For what it's worth, I just talked to a guy who bought those reproduction plastic corner pieces and he said they don't look at all like the originals.

the package tray when viewed from the top is covered in all material, but should come with the holes cut out on the bottom side, tho check with rep on phone..... so you have to cut the material the way you want it from along the holes on bottom side, and if wanted folding some excess carpet to the underside of metal, then attach speakers, don't cut out to close to the carboard or the carboard will be visible thru the rear windshield, just my opinion.

i got mine from a local place had it in stock $21.00..seams to me ive been getting screwed by ordering stuff through mail order..its funny the owner actually buys from places like classic industries, but he doesnt charge the truck frt charge

i have since bought all my door panels through him and have saved at least $100 in shipping

lesson learned

It's all about quantity. You can pack about twenty $10.00 package trays (or like items) in one box and pay the same amount of shipping as you would if you got a single item. ;) It's the dang "Oversize" package dimensions that kills ya'.

70 Nova package tray. Where do the two "ears" on the ends of the tray go? Do they tuck up behind the sail panels?:confused:

Thanks
That's where they go, but mine didn't want to slip in easily. Finally got them thou. I suppose you could pull the sail panels first, but that is another step that can be just as challenging to do without damaging something.

My package tray did not have the insulation pad included, so I pulled off the original pad and glued it to the new tray. Don't know if it really matters, but thought I would use it since I had it.

Good Luck

Somewhere on the floor of my garage are the end pieces you need, but it will take some time to find them(if they didn't get smashed already) I'll take a look in the next few days. Send me an email at the end of the week, and I'll let you know if I found them. Mike Morgan [email protected]
