should have put this heading as lower quarter and closing panel     so with the new closing panels in situ

  is this gap correct  between the yp[ outer corner edge of the heel board  and where it drops down verticaly to meet the rear lower corners of the quarter panels      should they be up tight against the flat of the outer flat of the heel board  it looks altho they should be bent downwards at more of and angle  to mate up but i dont want to bend anything until i have confirmation     i dont see any reason for that gap and the heelboard is heritage also

the inner folded lip is tight agains the inside of the rear pocket so it wont move inwards any further

Buy them from M Machine, phone them and ask for their own quarter repair panel, not another companies. The M Machine ones are 2 inches higher

Hi both,

 

I am currently doing a floor change, and made some pictures for reference which seem to fit to your needs.

My car has been acid dipped, and I do not think there were repairs made on the car.

Sorry the light is not that good on this one, the weather was too nice ;)

The heelboard and the closing panel seat flush together and are seam welded together on the top of the heelboard and at the vertical seam near the screw holes for the rear frame.

In the cabin the heelboard does not fit flush with the closing panel (sorry, no better quality picture but you can recognize it)

Hope it helps

Gilles

little bit more help please   the measurement from end to end of the solid yellow line  [should be around 93mm] but dont let that influence ,, and the measurement between  the other two lines would be much appreciated    having a right mare with this if it carries on i be taking the gas axe to it

 

i have no lower rear quarter to line it up there   no lower rear arch to speak of it had 4 different plates welded on it so the only  real reference i have is the companion bin remains and the boot floor

Can you do me a favour and take one from further back so I can get a better reference, please? I can't quite make it out.

Hello,

 

@Wreckitralph: I can do these measurements I think. I have only 2 issues:

1) I'm not at home this weekend and will be able to take the measurements onlw next weekend.

2) I think the part between the green and violet lines is the the rear heelboard, which is now out of my car, but I still have the remains of it and I should be able to give you some measurements. I have to check it.

 

@sc-em:

I will do other pictures as well. Do you need an overall view from where the rear bin was?

 

Gilles

Yes please Gilles. With mine I am intending starting with the rear boot repair and corner panels and then moving forward and seeing what the damage is. The actual front mount section on the rear subframe look sound, but all around, seems in need of patching as can be seen in the photos of my link.
