View Full Version : Rear Seat Cardboard???

09-25-2008, 10:49 AM
Can anyone tell me who makes or reproduces the cardboard that goes on the rear of the back seat? This is the piece that hides the springs on the rear backseat that you would see when you open the trunk area. I know someone has these but I do not know who. I saw several at Lancaster last week that looked like new. Thanks for any info.

Studebaker International sells them.

Check with an upholstery supply store. Most have this type of cardboard material in stock, some have different thicknesses. Expense will be less than ordering a precut. (CASO Philosophy!).

If you have your old one you can easily trace and cut it out. If you do not have your old one then the Stude Vendors are the way to go and you will have a correct fitting piece.

I just bought a 4'x 8' piece of hardboard at Lowes for about $15.00 and cut it to fit.

It looks fine, unless you want it to look exactly original.

That's a nice, sturdy solution, Leonard.
I was considering that option, with some sound-deadening on the "hidden" side.

Correct material in bulk is available from Windber Specialties in Windber, Pa.

I bought the board from Windber and was very happy with it. They sell different thicknesses and colors.
