    If I know the color and style, I can bring to Indy if I have it available. That is one of the parts you had rather purchase at a show vs shipping as the oversize charges will be more than the part. I do not have the insulation for the particular package tray. All of the reproduction insulation is way too thick and the wrong material. You are better off visiting your local craft store and purchasing a similar material which is more correct and at half the price, although you will have to trim it to fit, but that is not difficult.

    I was pleased with the stainless steel version a local restaurant sink fabricator made for me. Very basic engineering.

    The sheet metal was fine, we replaced the flimsy factory cardboard piece (insert) with the SS version in the foto (same thing with the flimsy cardboard trunk divider).

      Plus it took me 3 times for UPS to not bend it in shipping.

      If you are talking about the insert, not the actual sheet metal, then R.E.M. automotive makes quality replacement. My 73 used the jute pad underneath. Should be in the neighborhood of 20 for pad and 35 for insert.

      Thanks, it may only be a Satellite from birth, but I would like to see it regarded as a "Super Satellite" some day.

      I give him credit for some of his out of the box inexpensive solutions.
      if I wasn't a OE guy,I sure would be swiping some of his ideas..

      I have a similar setup as Dibbons does.
      Mine had a roll cage in it at one time. The previous owner had this setup in it.

      The rear parcel shelf was also covered, but I removed that piece.

      The setup was to isolate the battery as it was trunk mounted.
