Plate Under Rear Speaker with Armrest


Recommended Posts

Is the plate under the rear speaker on a ‘65 shorter when you have the optional armrest?  

 

I am not sure if my car originally came with a rear center armrest as I had parts for with and without the armrest. I decided to restore the armrest and install.  I tried to install the plate under the rear speaker and it appears too tall with the armrest in place.  I’m thinking it’s a plate for no armrest and the plate with an armrest is shorter. 

 

Any thoughts?

 

Thanks

Doug

Try cutting something out of a thick piece of plastic or Lexan or ??????. Paint it with some black krinkle paint. Don't tell anyone and chances are no one will know; especially if you leave the armrest up.

Thanks Tom

 

Just when I thought I had every part I would need to complete this restoration.:(

 

Contact the vendors in the back of the Riview. I'm sure one of them can come up with the shorter armrest filler panel.

Anyone happen to have a photo of what the plate looks like on the bottom edge, how it attaches? I see the flanges on the top. I have the arm rest option retrofitted, but I don't have the plate. I'm happy to jerry-rig something (better than a hole...), I have the fabric. But I'm not sure what to aim for.  Photo above doesn't explain how it actually attaches.

Bottom edge just rolls over to the back. I can get you a picture with measurements tomorrow. It doesn’t attach other than the tabs sliding up into the slots. Seat cushions and lower padded filler hold it in

Thanks to Tom and Brian--Brian, if you have the details and can spare the time, it'd be great.

Wedgewood, I should be able to get over to my car today. Didn’t make it yesterday.

Very helpful to see that, thanks Brian--I don't think there were any shots of that on the site. for some reason I thought the piece would be upholstered, but I get it now. I think I'm going to go the upholstered route. I'll post a picture with whatever I rig up. thanks again. Nick
