    Anyone know where I can get an inner rear cab cover that isn't cardboard? Chevy Duty has a cardboard one for $60. I'm contemplating making one out of fiberglass, but it will cost me $200 or so to do it the way I want it. Just thought I'd ask before re-inventing the wheel.

    There are some interiors you can look at in the Audio forum where people of used things other that fiberglass and cardboard. That might give you some ideas. You can also do a search on interiors, and it should give you some more insight on the subject.

    Thanks. I've done that and I've given up on buying one. I'm probably just going to make one out of fiberglass.

    It's the cardboard "thing" that fits behind the seat. It's sort of a trim piece so you don't see the rear sheetmetal. I'll try and find a picture.

    So this is in a PU and not a K5?

    My 77 PU didn't have anything there but metal.

    Sorry, I guess I should have specified. My crew cab has a fairly worn cardboard "panel".

    I just moved into a new house, when I find my camera in all these boxes, I'll take a picture and post it.

    I see. I guess I don't know what it would look like.

    What color is the interior? My father in laws buddy has a 1990 V3500 SRW I'm thinking about snaggin... poss. to part out. I believe it's interior is grey.

    Here's a picture of my inner rear cab cover.

    I'm diggin the diamond plate idea, but I think I'm going to do fiberglass and mold some speaker enclosures and shelves into it.

    Ahhh.. now I see.

    Yeah, it just depends on what you want to do with it really. If it was just to "cover" the area, you could do a lot of things. But, since you want to mold some enclosures into it, glass may be better for your needs.
