This post takes us to making the upper end floor panel: a simple panel made with the aid of simple tooling. We made a wood ‘knock over’ jig to create the spot welding flange that joins the panel to the tunnel. With a few more simple folds to join to the floor half, we were in business and ready to move on to making the left-hand floor half.

Decayed and weakened upper rear floor panel removed and ready for patterning.
New sheet metal with the pattern transferred.
