Thanks guys! Rear panel is 54" across the top, 48.5 across the bottom and 21.25" tall in the center at its tallest point. These measurements will not get you to the quarter panels though. My side panels go in first and then the rear wall is sandwhiched between them and the top of the trunk. You will just have to keep marking and trimming the top and bottom until it fits nice and snug.

I got mine at a local pawn shop that does custom stereo installs. The pic makes it look a lot lighter gray than it is. Pretty sure its the same stuff as in this link.

The Impala Logo is cut out of 1/8" hardboard. I glued that to the insert and then covered the whole thing with vinyl. Start in the middle and pull it tight while moving out. Not as bad to do as I thought it was going to be. I got a lot of tips and tricks from my fellow INC members who do this stuff all the time.
Here are the dimensions for the boxs if anyone would want to recreate. Took me 5 hours to get the first one to fit like I wanted. These will fit on both sides of a 26" spare tire and be TIGHT. You will have to reverse the offset on the front of the box for the other side so that they come out and around the spare tire.

Thanks. Wish I knew how to sew so I could get real creative with this stuff.
