Don’t wanna be a downer, but cutting the rear parcel shelf is a roadworthy failure. You could try using spacers above the existing holes

So if I buy two 6 x 9 speakers and 1 inch spaces that will do the job

5" x 7" will fit in the factory cutouts. Anything bigger requires cutting into the parcel shelf which as Bryan has mentioned is technically illegal and will de-value the car if you want to sell it in the future.

I'm not planning to sell mine either (for similar sentimental reasons to you) but the main reason I chose not to cut my parcel shelf was that I wanted the option to be able to restore it one day if I ever felt that way.

Did you actually cut the panel? or just pop out the filler panels?

And that’s what I did
Sorry I’m unable to go out to my shed and take a few pics for you all, I’m a fifo worker, I’m in the NT and home is in Cairns
My Dear Old Dad would of skin me alive with a rusty old butter knife if I had cut up the car in front of him
After all he was the won that wired it all up lol
I have a lot of memories of my old Holden and my family and now my wife and kids to
To me there priceless
Just like my car
And I always get asked “how much mate”
And I just say, ya don’t have the key to “fought knocks”

As I always say
Stay safe all

Ask my wife to take a pic for you guys of the rear speakers and the spacers in the back of my HJ Prem
As you can see I got the square type Because if I upgrade my speakers in the future they are a multi fit type and were cheaper lol
Hope this is of some help guys

P.S thanks Annette, now put the keys up lol
