    Good news though- the same deck lid part (new and unused) is now on e-bay at the same price on a "buy it now" basis. They claim to have three (3) left after mine was ordered last night.

    I think I was one of the three that ordered at the same time as you guys ... I have not received any communication from gmpartsdirect.com. I checked my order and it still says "on order". I'm going to try calling later this afternoon. Their website says its a few weeks to get shipped (I'm guessing because they just take regular stock and send it out to be embroidered, once they get a customer order). I I'll let you know what I find out.

    OK, well, I got the email from gmpartsdirect.com today - saying its on back-order. I might just wait and see - or I might see if my embroiderer friend might be able to just embroider my existing one ... and maybe put the silhouette instead - in the same color as my calipers. I bet that would look sharp.

    I was thinking the same thing... taking mine in to an embroiderer and see what they could do for me. And you're right, the silhouette would look spectacular!!!

    Okay, my lid liner arrived this afternoon and looks pretty darn good! I'm anxious to install it tomorrow, but I don't own any "trim removing tools". Does anyone have any tips as to using "conventional" hand tools (screwdriver blades, et al) to pop these clips without breaking or damaging them? The liner came with eight new clips, but I'd prefer to keep the originals intact... if possible.

    Thanks, as always!

    It's really difficult to get the retainers out without breaking them if you don't have a trim removal tool. You can try it by moving around the retainers prying with a screwdriver very carefully, but they do take some effort to get them out; hence, the reason the liner came with new clips. If you have a Harbor Freight close by, they have trim removal tools at a really good price.

    Thanks for the Harbor Freight tip, mtrocket! There happens to be one here in Pensacola and they had a cheapo plastic kit for $7 that worked like a charm! I only broke one clip and that was on the install where I forced the issue on the first one until mastering the technique. I have 7 new spares as I reused the old clips that remained in usable condition.

    The liner looks great and matches the interior of the trunk perfectly! I'll attempt to post a picture or two when I upload from my iPhone. Good acquisition luck to those of you still actively searching for this accessory!

    OH NO......just had a second deck liner show up; apparently the back ordered item never got canceled when another supplier was located! Now I guess I have to get a second XLR. "RATS"

    Anyone know if there is a low mileage 09 Black Cherry V available out there somewhere? I have a deck lid liner that needs a home....

    Any help appreciated!

    It is this kind of disappointingly practical solution that will limit me to only
    one (1) XLR in my garage and also keep me from quickly becoming unmarried.

    I will have the liner with me in BG and it is yours unless someone can introduce me to my second XLR; which introduction my spouse insists will not happen in my current lifetime

    Can not wait to see everyone in Ky!

    I used a very very small flat head screwdriver to do mine and was very very slow about it. No clips broke and it came out just fine.

    Glad it worked out. I installed Madmac's here in Bowling Green yesterday in a matter of about 5 minutes.

    Anyone interested in purchasing one of these decklid liners.

    I put in a order a few weeks ago and received one last week and installed it.

    Then yesterday I received another one ...they duplicated my order.

    I paid $130 for the liner plus shipping.

    Instead of sending it back i am willing to help a member obtain one for the cost of the liner...i will ship it free.

    will hold for a few days before returning it to the supplier.
