How is the trunk divider secured on a 65 Impala? Another member posted a picture in another post of mine and I noticed his 67 had small tabs that poked through his divider board and then were bent over to secure it. I don't see any tabs on mine. Did the factory just use spray glue at the top and bottom and let the bottom rest on the metal shelf?

Here are a couple pictures of mine. The only way it lines up with the seat hooks is with the juke padding facing the seat. The 2 cutouts at the bottom don't line up with anything though. Is it possibly the wrong part? Thanks.

I can't help you other than another photo of my 67. Definitely a big difference in the trunk divider area.

What you show in the 2nd picture is the insulation. The actual divider board is a heavy black coated cardboard material that hangs on the same hooks as the rear seat back. It seems someone put the wrong sticker over the original insulation sticker. Don S

Thanks for the picture. I can see the tabs much better. As you can see by my picture, I don't have those tabs and there is no way for the seat hooks to fit into anything on the divider board to secure it. The investigation continues. :-)

Thanks for the reply Don. It is definitely a divider board. The other side of it is black cardboard and the juke padding/insulation is glued to it. I'm assuming that the black cardboard side faces the inside of the trunk because the 3 cutouts will only line up with the seat hooks that way and it would look better than the insulation showing in the trunk.

Oh, Ok Mike, when I bought mine years ago, there was no insulation on it, just the cardboard.

Same with mine. But looking at your photo, in the top flange there is enough metal to easily with just a hacksaw cut a couple of tabs & bend them up to support the cardboard.

Thanks everyone for the replies. I'm just going to use some spray glue, do a little trimming, and poke a hole for the speaker wires. I wonder what the 2 cutouts on the bottom of the divider board are for though?
