New Rear Parcel Shelf For FrankenBenz

on Aug 17, 2012
Finally managed to get a used good condition rear parcel shelf for 'FrankenBenz'!!! I've been looking high and low for this item ever since I decided to start 'Project FrankenBenz'!!! This is the only part that betrays the age of 'FrankenBenz' and I can't wait to get rid of it...


The first aid compartment is in very good condition... Everything is still intact...


This rear parcel shelf is from a newer model and it is slightly different compare to the one on 'FrankenBenz'...


As you can see from this pic, the speaker cover is in dire state... Notice the different in design??? The new one is definitely better looking!!!


Last time, the mechanic relocate the speaker because the original place can only fit in a 5" speaker while the new one is 6" (better sounding and much easier to source!!!)... This time I insist that the speaker must be in the original place but the magnet can't go through it!!! With some brute force and the help of a plier and hammer, we manage to bend the metal surrounding the speaker area and make the hole just big enough for the magnet to go through... Use some extremely sticky tape and tape the speaker in place... Viola very clean and nice looking rear parcel shelf!!!




To be continue...
