Default Defuzzing the rear shelf

Here's what you get after almost a week of sanding, a whole can of filler primer, 2 cans of paint and a can of clear coat. That fuzzy stuff on the shelf don't come off to easy. I'll never do another one, to much work. Added a Chrysler wing to finish it off.

How 'bout I tell you how I did mine? Used a drill and a 3" sanding drum. Worked on it off and on for about a week. Used a Dremel around the edges and in the 2 hand grip areas. I should have just made one out of wood, couldn't have been any harder to do.

That looks great! Again, the way Chrysler SHOULD HAVE done it.

Anyone have an idea why DC decided on that God awefull furry crap in the first place? Mine keeps yelling to be replaced by a nice wooden shelf. BTW yours does look outstanding. What is the material under the fur?? Cardboard or??

redhotpt, you did an outstanding job on the shelf--looks great! [8D] Don't think I've ever seen one finished in that manner. Is that a custom-made carpet on the rear floor area? Did you make it or purchase it somewhere? It looks very nice.

My stock rear shelf "yelled long and hard" until I finally got tired of listening to it "scream". I recently replaced it with a custom-made wooden shelf.



However, if redhotpt had posted a few weeks earlier I might have attempted to refinish my stock shelf in a like manner as the final result looks awesome. [^]

Hey Gary, the carpet in the rear came from G.G. Bailey. Your wood shelf looks great!
