Hello everyone, I have an 88 ss that got rear ended on the 19th of this month. I am looking to see if anyone on here has replaced the rear trunk panel where the trunk latches. I am also looking for the trunk floor but the one im looking for is the one that is over the rear end sort of say. I know i can get qtr panels and inner and outer rear fenders and 3 piece trunk floor and spare wheel well etc. from Goodmark. But i cant seem to be able to find the rear seat braces and the trunk panel that goes over the rear end etc. Any ideas where i can get those ?

Ask the same question in "SS Parts Wanted" here. Maybe one of the guys that parts out cars will take a recip saw to the back end and ship you it for not cheap. Would think any Monte from 82-88 would be the same part. Ask Mike, Mike's Monte, if he's got one laying around or know where to get one, he's easy to talk to.

The upper trunk floor, and rear seat braces out of any G Body will fit I BELIEVE, except El Camino of course, the tail panel is Monte specific IIRC.

I have replaced the tail panel on my 85 ss as well as the trunk .u cant get new tail panels but good used are hard to find.good luck post some pics of the extent of damage. My first car was an 86ss low mile survivor when i was 18 yrs old. The car got smashed in the rear by a drunk driver.i feel your pain .hopefully its just a bump and didnt turn the back end into an acordian

Thanks guys for the responses. I have been trying to get on here for the past couple of days and every time I try to load the forum i get and error website not found etc.
I am still on the hunt for the repair panels etc. I found some nos parts but at high dollar etc. I am also looking into parting out a donor i have in the back yard but was hoping to find reproduction upper trunk floor etc..

They dont make the upper trunk floor which sucks. U will haave to find a decent one used .they make lots of parts except that. They need to mkae a complete floor with back seat area.lots of cars rot out in the back seat area . Post some pics. Look at my resto thread for my 84 ss.

Here some pictures. It hurts just to post such a nice car before and after pictures. long story short, A teenager driving a tahoe was texting while driving and failed to brake she claims her brakes did not work but in reality i bet she was texting while driving. This 88 Monte Carlo only has 37k original miles on it. Now I am trying to get it back together asap on top of that she did not have insurance. I dont even want to start a discussion on this matter I just want my car fixed asap and move on. I do have full coverage and insured and uninsured policy.

Thanks guys. 84ss355*4spd do you have a link for Keystone ? Do they have an on line website catalog we can browse through ? At this point im not sure if replacing the qtr panel would and trunk floors to be a good idea ? I was think of finding a good donor and cutting the back half of the car before the qtr glass on both sides and have them weld it back to my car on the floor panel etc.. The reason i say this is because i want everything to square out and knowing the trunk floor upper panel and back seat bracing and speaker panel are not available. The trunk floor pan and rear seat braces all buckled up im not sure if speaker panel is buckled yet ?

Does Goodmark make reproduction rear bumper covers for 87-88 ss ? How about reproduction tail light housing extension ?

I'd give Mikes Montes a shot. He has a lot of nos parts and connections too.

How far off are the Goodmark quarter panels ? The body shop that I think will end up repairing my car say the reproduction panels need a lot of work getting them to fit right he didnt specifically say Goodmark G body panels he just said in general etc. He suggest that i find a Donner body to replace my damaged panels , qtr, floor, tail light panel etc. what do you guys think ? He also said that he would cut frame by the door jam area where the factory welds are and weld a new frame from there to bumper from the Donner frame etc. ? Does this sound like a good Idea ? I would prefer installing another frame but since insurance is involved Im not sure if that will be possible with out them considering it totaled ?

Anything aftermarket takes a little messin around. I have the quarters on my 84 and i think they are done well.so your frame is toast i guess?
