All,

I have looked through the forum threads for ideas on the Coupe package tray. Unfortunately, it is not completely flat like the fastbacks. We all know that it curves up in the back of the tray.

My current tray has some water damage. I would like to make one. That maybe harder that I expect. I know there are some reproduction out there.

If I go the reproduction route, then, I believe a thin vinyl fabric glued on would help prevent water damage, if the back glass springs a leak.

Any Ideas???

Thanks

I painted my package tray. Its been about 8 years and haven't and any water damage yet. I find water on it every time I wash the car.

vozaday,

What paint brand did you use. Was it a flat or semi finish?

Thanks

All,

I went to the Fabric Outlet and got a yard of Black Marine Vinyl. I have the standard Kicker 6 x 9 speakers. I did find that the speaker covers, being an oval shape, does not sit very well due to the curve of the package tray. I looked into another solution and found these covers.

All,

I got one of the In line Tube 6 x 9 rear package tray cover. It is a really nice part and it fits just right for the coupe package tray.
