66 belair/biscayne package trays?
Permalink  
 


Hey all. I was getting ready to install the package tray for my 66 belair. the one I ordered is WAY to big. I had planned on cutting it down, but now am a bit worried. Has anyone installed one recently or have any advice? Does anyone have then for sale that actually fit? I would love to also see pictures of where the package tray and headliner meet, especially in the rearmost corners. 

 

Thanks!

 

James

Show us some pics.
There may be a seam or what appears to be an embossed curved line towards the back of your replacement package tray. That part gets bent up at an angle to fit under the metal at the base of the backlite/rear window. If there are tabs on the side those will bend up to meet the base of the sail panel. With the bends completed your tray will now fit flat on the steel and Inslation if you are using it. The front edge of your tray probably has some foam with a vinyl cover. Once the tray is installed apply trim glue to the metal below the top edge of where the back seat would be and pull the vinyl down onto the glue. Send us some pics so we can see your configuration and help you out!

I ended up ordering a new package tray. It seems in the four years the part was on my shelf that the aftermarket caught up with sedans a little. New tray fit perfect, looks acceptable and (other than shipping) was quite inexpensive.
