Boot Floor repair panel Mk1 Saloon

#1 Post by tomd » Tue Oct 31, 2017 11:51 am

Several small holes have revealed themselves in the front left hand corner of my boot floor. I have tried all the normal searches for a repair panel without any luck. Does anybody have a section of boot floor I could purchase as a repair panel.. or any suggestions for the repair? Many thanks Tom

Hello Tom,

I see you have had little response to your query, which indicates a lack of panel availability.

You can make a good copy of the floor section using hand tools and some hard wood section, or steel strip shaped to replicate the floor section.

I have another question regarding the Mk1 boot floor. I have started making up the repair panels and the boot floor seems not to be flat. It curves up away from the petrol tank towards the back of the car. Is this how the floor is originally or should it be flat.
many thanks, Tom
