Yes, a lot of very good woodworking advice and my hearty thanks to you all. I shall proceed along those lines when I get my template and am able to continue with this piece.

Thanks, Ken. Now, when you say "rounded", do you mean that the corners are rounded off and not square or is the edge on the top and bottom of the piece rounded to prevent snags somewhere? What I mean by that is if you look at the piece from one of the ends you would see the back edge appearing to be more of less a semi-circle. I hope I've explained this sufficiently.

Hi. Yes, I have looked that there are multiple locations nearby where I can obtain Baltic Birch plywood, but my question now is what is the "correct thickness?" I can get it in either 1/2" or 3/4". The pictures send earlier appear to show something in the 3/4" range. What does your documentation show?
Thanks, again and again.

Thanks and now that I am getting a template from Mike in Tucson, obtaining the rubber mat should be a breeze.
Thanks to everyone for your help.

These pictures are wonderful and I don't think I need anything else. I now have a plan in place to construct my shelf. Thanks to everyone for your help.

I had not thought of that but it would make a lot of sense. Maybe the template Mike is sending to me will show that.

Hey, Mike. Yes, that would be great. I was going to start on it from what I've been able to create here, but if you have an actual template I would love to have it.

I am at the point where I will construct the trunk shelf for my 120 Touring Sedan. I can make it based on the dimensions without much issue but I don't know how these were built initially. Does anyone have the following information:
1) Of what were these shelves made
2) Were they carpeted or not
3) If the materials of which these were built were assembled in multiple pieces instead of a single piece, were these pieces assembled using tongue-in-groove and glued together or were they assembled using some other technique.
I have really appreciated everyone's expertise while I get my Packard on the road.

Hello, all. I am now ready to obtain and install a new headliner in my '37 120C. What company would you recommend from whom I might obtain one? I see a number of companies out on the web but not knowing anything about any of them I would like to get some more information.
Thanks.

Yes, a trunk shelf support. I do now have then installed. Unfortunately, I thought they belonged on the chassis so they were painted black instead of Packard Cream like the body. When I need to touch up body paint, I'll redo these. What was this shelf made of? I can make one out of plywood, but I don't see anywhere online that has this information. I can create a pattern to build one, but the actual construction is still in question. Any ideas??
Again, I do thank everyone who has helped me in this.
