Package trays

Post by RossK73 on Thu Apr 27, 2017 2:27 pm

Has anyone replaced their package tray? I see OPG has various ones - are their any other suppliers for these and how is the fitment?
Thanks, Ross

I went to the local upholstery shop and bought the material and made my own. Used the old one for pattern. Fits great!

Me too. They ship those things as oversize so you end up paying just as much for shipping as the part. I used the old cardboard, some foil backed insulation stuff for floors and covered it in some material from Michaels. Worked great.

My Car came with one from OPG and will be installing it as soon as we get out of this cold weather and rain with the rest of the Interior

My Dad picked one up for mine before I took ownership. I guess it's been about 6 years. Initial fit was good and quality seemed fine, but the board is wrinkled now. I think the cause is not from the quality of the part, but a rain water leak into the trunk. The south Texas heat after a rain steamed it and now it looks like this

Thanks for all the feedback guys! with the cost and exchange on the money, I think I will go with a re-cover on the old cardboard.
Have a great weekend - Cheers!

What do your package trays look like? In my car, it's not flat.....it turns up around the back edge by the rear glass. I'm needing to replace mine but not sure if I can duplicate this shape. I may just save my pennies for the ABS plastic repop.

sorry... its alittle foggy out this morning anyway. yeah. mine was completley rotted away. but the hardest part was drawing the line around the ply wood the speaker holes where super easy. the overall project took me less than.... 20 min using a skill saw. and coming from someone with no fabrication experience

The new package tray from OPGI is not expensive, but painting your original is cheaper and probably easier. Years ago, I painted mine with some Baer paint from Home Depot. It matched and looked good. It has curled now and needs repainting. It's not permanent, but it works. I don't even like Home Depot!

I purchased on from OPGI a little over a year ago when I did my upholstery. If I recall I spent about $30 for it and it was pretty straight forward to install. The biggest obstacle is removing the upper back seat and then speakers or defrost if you have it.

If you go to any Upholstery shop ask if they have some waterproof door board its black in color. The tan stuff is junk. Then you can wrap it in some vinyl if you like. Leave a flap to go down behind back seat in the vinyl.

Or you can use ply wood and custom make any thing you want. Here is mine made out of plywood and" />" /> fiberglass. .
