Thanks to Carl Bilter for this information.

The trunk side panels are black vinyl over cardboard and
include a panel behind the rear seat.
A spare tire cover was not available on the 300J


The original trunk carpeting is a fairly thin gray and black weave
that covers the entire compartment. The current replacement material from
Gary Goers is very similar in appearance but the gray is slightly lighter.

side of the trunk compartment and should be mounted such that the antenna
will extend exactly vertical, not at an angle.
