\'63 package tray question

I've got a package tray that's a bit faded. I know you can get new ABS trays, but there's nothing wrong with the tray i've got other than looking bad. What's the point of buying a new one if I gotta paint it same as the current one. So, what to do? I see that Dearborn sells acrylic lacquer paint in Rose Beige, but I don't even know if paint will work back there. Carpet? When I told my wife I could put carpet back there she told me I might as well throw some fuzzy dice in and grow an afro. Anyway, got any ideas on how to restore a package tray?

\'63 package tray question

Your wife is funny. I put fake fur and sheer curtains with blue fuzzy dots on it in a 62 Impala. Of course it had the Chevy sticker in the window too but darn, forgot the fuzzy dice.
Is that a cardboard like stuff that's on the rear package tray? If it is, is it rough like scuffs on it and such or just faded?
I would try painting it if it's not really roughed up. If it's roughed up I'm not sure if a person could use like fine sand paper on it or not. I would say build up with primer but that would just create an enviroment for flaking I would imagine.
Or maybe you could cover it with that thin like knit cloth similar to what covers the front of speakers. Stretch it over it and glue it to the back side or around the edges. If you do that, be sure the glue is safe for plastics or it will melt it probably.

That's what I was thinking he could use, that or that upholstery paint stuff. Unless that's what you are talking about already.

You can try getting some vinyl , cover yours and use vinyl paint on that.
I made a package tray out of masonite and covered it with tuck and roll to match my seats. Came out nice.
Oh and whats wrong with a "Fro" and fuzzy dice?

When we were back home in Oregon a couple years ago there was a 70s Olds in front of us with a man driving that had a HUGE fro. I think it was the 70s that I last saw one that big even. Sure was odd looking after so long. A blast from the past. I commented "durn, guess the 70s ARE coming back. In more ways that just the clothes!"

As for the vinyl paint, I used it on my seat backs and console and it has for the most part held up well. Except where my son kept wacking the console lid with the seat belt. It will need redone one of these days.

Ah yes, the days of youth. Well, the problem with the afro is that I actually used to wear a 'fro (a la John Riggins) and have had plenty of fuzzy dice as well. Looks like I'm heading back to the days of my youth (don't know if I have enough hair for a 'fro anymore).

\'63 package tray question

The white 62 Impala reminded me of the one that I owned back in the early 80's.

Bought a white 62 Impala 283 PGlide from my wife's uncle as a bumper/commuter car. From the looks of the interior, this guy must have lived in grease. Interior was beyond repair. (Also had to change one badly dented fender; bought/painted a used fender with the original 62 Chevy white which was available in spray cans).

Bought my friend's very nice, but, motor/trans-wise, was heading for the wrecking yard, 62 Olds 2 dr hardtop. Took the Olds interior (door/side panels, seats, carpet), put them in the Impala, painted the Impala dashboard green (to match the Olds interior), and had a very clean, nice running 62 Chevy bumper car.

Actually sold that car for a profit

This actually was a boyfriends car, i had one a few years later. This one is actually a faded baby blue but the picture is off an old negative I scanned. This is the car he traded my '64 for. I laughed when I saw it also, hadn't seen it in years! I think this was in late 75 or early 76.

\'63 package tray question

The one i had was white and had primer spots here and there. Bought it for $150 from a cousin on Halloween night. The wing window I pushed out on the highway one day trying to open it. Forgot they had put one in that didn't fit after he had put his fist through it one time. It was like glued in but didn't last long when I got done with it. The heater didn't work, had a hole in the heater core and park didn't work. The lever was broke off so I carried a brick with me to drive over. Lean out the door set it down and drive over. E-brake didn't work either. The engine smoked like a frieght train when coasting down a hill. I sold it for what I paid for it and the guy was trying to me into believing it was a strong little engine. He was saying he was going to put a 4bbl on it and I told him to kiss it good bye if he did. 2 weeks later it was dead. Oh and I had gotten a hole from a nail in the side wall near the tread and no money to fix it so I got a bigger nail and covered in glue then hammered it in and put an inner tube patch over it. Was like that for 3 months when I sold it. One day the guy that bought it was cutting off a piece of his windshield wiper so went over to see what he was doing. One of the other tired had a hole in it and he was using the wiper blade as a plug. I miss that car though. It wasn't just a car, it was an adventure!!
I'll have to see if I can find a pic. Think I only have one of it that I know of. Have several of the "blue" one.
