Having stripped everything out of the rear tub, I was looking around for either a replacement floor, or something suitable to repair/replace it with. The first option was a sheet of thin aluminium chequer plate and, for now, just to cover the mess up. But reading some forum topics about other folks restorations I spotted a post in one that suggested that a company in Scarborough who make reproduction Series panels was after a floor out of a Lightweight to copy.
Having been involved in classic car restoration for many years, I know how difficult and frustrating it can be to source good reproduction parts when originals aren’t available, so I decided this was my oppotunity to get a new floor and help others in the same situation.
So, the floor was stripped out today (how many rivets ?!?!?!) and wrapped up ready to send to them.
