Removed the old inserts and trying 'clean' out the material under the lips. After getting new inserts from one of our sponsors I'm finding they bend or dimple when fitting them under the lip. Also they sure resemble roofing material in look and feel. I think if I force them any more they'll crease permanently.

Should I carefully "trim" them a little bit, or any tips?

I trimed mine just to fit and used black caulking or black RTV on the underside so when put in place there are on ruff edges and seals smooth,:cool:

MP.....Was looking through my East Coast Chevy catalog for another item and spotted their Trunk Insulation Kit.....Noticed that they had two types....Replacement Material and Reproduced Original Material.

I guess I got the 'replacement' material from Danchuk, about $27. Eckler's, for example, has 'replacement' for $31 and 'original' waffle pattern for $39.

When I removed my old stuff I don't recall it being 'waffled', but what do I know...
