  1. Hi again, I'm making a bit of progress but I'm stuck on finding replacements for my rusted out rear fender support brackets. These are part #4 on the attached diagram. I've checked all the suppliers I can find to no availe. If any one has dimensions for the part, I can likely make them. What little I have left of mine are not good enough to make patterns from. As always, any help is appreciated. They're NLA from BMW, W&N, etc.. Thanks
  2. That's a good idea. I may actually have a couple of those stuffed away somewhere. The paper I bought isn't as heavy as I hoped. Thanks
  3. Thanks to everyone who contributed. I can see I have some fitting to do. Picked up some heavy Bristol board stock from the local craft store, tape from the dollar store and a couple sharpies. I'm going to make the paper template from the W&N floor panel and cut the template to fit down in the floor, then once I'm satisfied, I'll start on the metal cutting with 1/2" overlap so I don't short myself. I've had to fill a few gaps on other panels and that's no fun. Once I get it decent looking and buttoned up, I'll post a photo. Despite being retired, time seems to be rushing by little getting done. Thanks again for the great forum. Rod
  4. Hello all, I'm restoring a 73 and am currently working on replacing the front floor pans. I have completed work on the inner fender and A pillar supports and the inner sill. My current dilemma is trying to come up with way to fit the replacement pan (W & N) to mark the existing floor to cut so I don't have 1/4 or 1/2" gaps to weld up. I'm planning to butt weld the perimeter if I can get it to fit. I'm trying to not bugger it up and make my job harder. Any suggestions of measuring or making a pattern are appreciated. As it stands now, I have the floor cut out and the frame rail cleaned up. I can't get the pan in low enough to measure against without cutting more floor out. I'm afraid of cutting too much that I can't uncut! Thanks
  5. Perfect! Thank you. There had been some prior repairs making it tough to figure out how the layers came together. It is as I suspected. Nice work on yours. Cheers
  6. I'm into some major sheet metal work on the inner fender, A pillar support panel, inner sill and floor. A photo or detailed exploded diagram showing how it all ties together would be a great help. Thanks
  7. Hi all I'm in need of the vertical bracket that welds to the A-pillar and provides the mounts for the rear of the front fender. It's shown on the W&N website but it isn't available from them at this time. Does anyone know of an alternate source. They're not all that complex so if I have to, I could take a shot at making them but I'd rather not. Any guidance is appreciated. Thanks Rod
  8. On mine it's the lower forward mount - the one under the rear sear at the front of the rear subframe. I have the pieces from Germany - just a big job to install and get the geometry right. I'm hoping to get at the floors this week if the weather cools a bit.
  9. I've been after him for years but he finally realized he wasn't going to do anything to get it roadworthy again (he's 82 and having health issues). This keeps it in the family at least. I have to do both front floors, the inner A pillars and left rear suspension mount. I'm brushing up on my welding skills to prepare for the tough work. I've done the fuel and cooling system hoses and water pump. Ready to start it again.

  11. Just acquired my '73 from my brother-in-law in Ottawa in June. Too hot to do much over the summer. He bought it new and parked it in his garage in '87. I have it running and am starting some underdog re-furb once the heat dies down. Good to here there a few others in the London area. I may do some reaching out. Unfortunately, it looks better than it is...
