    Hi all,

    how is the package shelf area supposed to look like? My car has been restored and doesn't exactly look like original anymore in this area.

    As you can see I have the rear corner molding end caps, but if I recall correctly the piece between those items was originally steel? I don't have that part anymore, so I must come up with something else:

    I mean this part:

    And how should the shelf trim look like? I have the "bump" (with the two holes) and that is original, but I don't really see how I should fit a shelf trim on top of that:

    Do you guys have some pictures maybe?

    The tray just slides under the lip...the jute backing helps it fill up the distance....the end caps are plastic

    The piece you're referring too is steel ....and is part of the steel trim goes over it...I've seen a car that had vinyl glued over it but it had the 80s cloth interior deal...not factory

    Ah ok. Thank you, that helps in my understanding.
    That lip is gone in my car, so I have to think about a solution for that, but I'm sure I'll come up with something.
    Or make new end caps and use the current metal.
