Following my earlier question on the boot floor/plate/cover etc, I am now reconstructing the rear valance and lower boot floor. I have a new lower boot floor, reusing the old hinges and have a new outer valance.
Does anyone have good photos of the boot/valance structure during restoration please. The fellow doing the welding is wondering about the hinge reinforcement plates and the brackets that attach the hinges to the lower boot floor etc. I am unable to find an exploded drawing of the components or clear resto photos. any help would be much appreciated
Thank you Patrick, again, you have apparently been through this process. Underneath plating on the vertical from the upper to the lower floor, was the original, which apart from some minor rusting on the bottom edge which was easy to cut away and weld a 25mm strip across the width.
We have a new lower boot floor with reinforcing plates for the boot hinges and outside that we have a new valance. Are we missing anything else do you think? I have not been able to find an exploded parts drawing or any other illustration.
A couple more pictures. I think you have everything. The new floor provides the lid hinge fixing points and then you have the valance panel filling the space between the wing ends (photo2). Photos courtesy of James Geddes who did the work for me.
