    I just fixed the rear cargo interior panel on my 60...

    Like most interior panels, the panel board had been damaged around the hole, from the panel clips ripping out.
    They had reached the point that the hole in the board would no longer hold the clips....

    I stumbled on a product called ZAP and ZAP Kicker (super glues found in most hobby/model stores) It is used in that industry to glue and reinforce balsa wood.. (turns balsa wood hard as rock!)

    Anyways, bent back all the deformed panel around the hole back to its original shape (or pretty close to it) and put the panel clip in the hole, then I applied ZAP/Zip super glue to the entire area. Once you do that you dont need to wait for it to dry, you can spray this ZAP Kicker a super glue accelerator onto it and it drys instantly.
    The area around the hole and the panel clip have now solidified rock hard and there is no way the panel clip is coming out.

    I also glued some pop-sickle sticks on in this fashion, to re-inforce the area around the speakers.
