I am needing to replace my rear package tray on my 94 Caprice. Does anyone know if anyone makes a replacement for these? Mine is crumbling and falling apart. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Paul, did you ever find anything out on this about a speaker tray? Please share if you did. Thanks

The only aftermarket tray I've seen made is this "thing".....

CHEVROLET CAPRICE IMPALA 91 92 93 94 95 96 CUSTOM FIBERGLASS REAR DASH PANEL

Personally, I just don't like these kinds of items as I think it is way over the top but for the true audiophile, it may be right up your alley.

Other than this piece, your only option may be a used rear package tray or redo your current one. If the board itself is in good shape, you may be able to remove the old carpet and then recover it with new carpet or even consider something in suede similar to how I've seen some headliners done. Not real difficult or expensive to do this yourself either.

rear speaker deck

Hi guys I am going to have my interior guy just make me one and wrap in leather to match the rest of my interior.
I looked and it was ridiculous to ship something due to size and chances of being damaged.It will actually be cheaper if you just go to a well know custom audio place in your area nd have them do it.

Yeah, that is just ridiculous. Thanks for sharing though at least it's an option. My current package tray is so brittle. The Oklahoma Sun is brutal on it even with tinted windows. How hard are they to remove is there a special process cause I was wondering if I could take it out and maybe lay some fiberglass over it in layers and at least preserver it and then get it recovered. Wondering if that is do able? I am almost afraid to try and remove it because it is so brittle. Thanks

Don't think it's very difficult to do. Pretty sure it just lifts up out of there once you remove the plastics or you may have to pull it forward and then lift it out.

Things like the plastic sail panels on the C pillars (which just have push pins), speaker covers (lift off) and the rear seat back I think also needs removed. Then the package tray comes out and pretty sure the 3rd brake light just stays in place.

The board should be fine as long as it didn't get wet or aged too badly. If it's not usable, you could probably use it as a template and cut a replacement from a thin sheet of Luan. Then cover that with whatever you like.

Edit - never mind, just looked at a pic of it and it's a molded piece.

Best bet may just be a Junk yard for a replacement. I have one I could sell you but shipping would be pita.

This one I just found for $69 and ONLY $8 shipped to my zip.
