Underside of trunk floor brackets
#1
In review of Scott's underside detailing it came to my attention that the metal shop did not replace a couple of brackets. Now I need to see if I can find a couple of these as I do not believe they are reproduced. If anyone has a parts car with these and could drill out the spot welds let me know? Thank you,

Are the spotwelds visible from inside the trunk by any chance?

"I love my Hookers!" and "Get some Strange" probably have a different connotation to non automotive enthusiasts!

I do not think the spot weld will be visible in the interior of the trunk. I think the spatter paint would be thick enough to cover them up.

Don @ OMS is also looking for me. I will follow-up with others if he is not able to locate any. This really stinks as I just completed painting the interior of the trunk and the heat from welding would most likely bubble the paint. QCode confirmed my thoughts to possibly go with panel bonding adhesive in lieu of welding.

Brian,

With this continuous level of attention to the details, your car is going to be
AMAZING.

I'm jealous!

Ray,
Thanks time will tell if I can maintain my sanity long enough to get it done. I honestly wish I had the skill level as many of the members do in this forum to do it myself. It would be nice to know that everything that was done was by my hand and not having to try and connect the dots of work that was done by others.

I posted up a question asking exactly what those brackets were for almost 2 years ago when I was welding in my trunk pan - and the consensus was that they're 'not necessary' for anything.

So... if that's the case (with the exception of 'coucours' restorations): why bother? Big Grin
