Advice

Good Day all. I’m looking for some suggestions/information on how to make a 67 chevelle trunk look good with carpet or other ideas. Just looking to clean it up.

I sprayed my trunk with 3M Body Schutz and put a factory trunk mat down after. I think it looks pretty clean.

It is a rubberized coating, yes. It's what I used as an undercoat and I did inside my fenderwells also. I thought it would be worth a shot in the trunk and it turned out nice, in my mind anyways. And yes, I went up the sides with it too. I coated everything except the deck lid. You can buy it at any auto paint supplier, but you have to purchase the gun to spray it with as well. Unless you know someone with a gun.

Re: Advice

Carpet and especially a trunk mat will hold a good bit of moisture. Personally I wouldn't want either. Better solution is some kind of paint to spruce it up.

My car always sits in the garage with the hood and trunk open, so moisture isn't really an issue. It can definitely be problem if you can't do that though. The cheap carpet from ebay is kinda thin and breathable too.

Re: Advice

You can also get a gray or black gauzy-like trunk liner material from any auto upholstery supply house that is very stretchy and easy to work with. You use spray adhesive on one surface (if you want easy removal later) and it stretches easily over compound curves to make a nice finished look. I had a friend with a sewing machine make me a spare tire cover from it as well on an old Cadillac I used to own; when I sold it years later the buyer said he knew it was a well cared for car by the immaculate trunk The stuff is cheap, too.

Re: Advice

Not an inexpensive option but you could do something like this after you take care of rust & paint:

I don't know what your build goals are so may/may not fit in the plan. Personally, I think this treatment looks good on a modern street machine/protour type build but is a out of place/ a bit odd on a traditional hot rod. Maybe a simpler design would fit a traditional hot rod better...

Re: Advice

Nothing looks better to me than being clean with the correct spatter paint and a fresh mat. I don’t like putting an enclosure in the trunk because it looks so small. Trunks get wet and I wouldn’t want carpet in the trunk for that reason.

Other opinions will vary!
