Has anyone sourced replacement floor pans in North America?

Before I go through the arduous task of trying to recreate some from scratch. Going to buy a hood from the scrapyard of some old car.

But already made ones would be so much nicer :-)

Try to find a wreck and cut them out. Next is making your own. Last is fixing yours.

You can try this guy. Not sure if he's still making them or not.

Also after a quick search I found a post with this guys information. The post was old so idk if the contact is still good but worth a try.

 

 

"Try contacting Mark Grimsley (Arlington, VA area). He has been making both front and rear floor pan patch panels of 18ga. steel for 6, 8 or more years.

He also makes rockers.

Mark's email:rediron07@comcast.net

and his number is 703-490-2032 "

VW rabbit pans almost have the same dimensions as our 1200's

 

You can get both sides shipped new for under $200.00

Matt have you done this personally?   I'd like to know before I lash out $200 and give this a try

 

Also which one is it?  There are two different sets of floor pans.  These ones called "half" ??

The coupe will need some trim and dolly work for fitting.

I have to finish taking my car down to just a body.

 

Suspension is still on it and the motor needs to be pulled. Work keeps me really busy :)

 

If any community members want to come help take it down to the shell. Scooter can get on the floor swap when all that is finished.

Plane ticket?   ^_^


It's your car, just don't ruin it.

 

It's also not my money, so i'll suggest the most expensive option.
