Not sure what site I saw these floor pans for sale on, but they're out of a 33 Chevrolet master 3 window. Apparently the guy who owned the 33 car for 40 + years ,  retired and dug out the coupe, took it to a rod shop to have built and they took the stock floor out and replaced it with a new floor.   As you can see this original floor is like new. 

Luckily for me I was going to new York state and these were just 30 minutes away from where I was going Rochester area.   Sent the seller the money and he generously  delivered them to my friends house .

What first caught my attention to it was the part that goes under the bench seat with the two tool storage areas, one shallow and one deep.  On my coupe I put my ron francis wiring panel into it for easy access.  I might do the same for the roadster depending on whether I use the stock bench seat or my  : 91 cutlass articulating power seats or the 96 Pontiac bonnieville power 9 way power seats.  Both barely fit width wise.

I also got the center floor panel that goes from just forward of the rear end up to a frame wood brace.  Previously in this thread I showed the rumble seat floor pan I re did, so I would not use this one.    The last piece runs from the rear end wood divider to the back of the car and has the 2 large water drain hole openings in the corners.  Note all the correct bracing pieces and how they are attached as stiffeners.  These can take a dip at the enviro tech metal stripper and their acid bath electrified system and will come out looking like brand new.  Take the bracing off using a spot welder cutter so it can be cleaned underneath.  Then the braces can be re-attached using button head allen heads.   

Will be 4 pictures in one post and 2 in a follow up

the floor section from rear end towards back of car, note nice bracing on the floor panel.

I also finally got a stewart warner 2 5/8" motor minder vacuum gauge, NOS in the box .  ;D ;D   Nice period piece from the 60--70's era .

Finally got my camera back from Fuji, unfortunately they could not fix the battery drain problem and for $135 shipped me a brand new  14 mega pixel  S-2980 model which is a big up grade on my S1000..

last couple of days finally getting  back to working on shazzbott my roadster.  Spent a day or so making a set of mounting brackets that will position the schroeder nascar type sway bar 7/8" 48 splines for the arms, onto my jaguar rear end.  this is a large .850 bar.  I also procured some used nascar team sway bar arms and those really trick custom milled brackets that hold the sway bar, it has urethane bushings for smooth working of the bar.. Got them as nascar team surplus also.

 I made the loop brackets that attach to the 3/4" round aluminum 6061 T-6 mounting bar that will attach under the frame rails to another pair of aluminum brackets.   

Next will have to get all those parts brackets welded to the 3/4" round bar, the fancy milled brackets have 3/8" holes in the for mounting, either as shown or reversed and mounted on the flat side.

Great work! It will be interesting watching this come together.

Finaly got something accomplished on shazzbott.  I took my $800 used gas tank cover panel for the 35 roadster to a restoration shop along with a fiberglass example of it , so that the guy could see exactly how the correct shape is.
It was determined at FAWCETT MOTORS here in whitby that the lower part of the panel was/is junk. Somebody ground away its strength and the lower part was all bumpy and un-repairable.  So Peter came up with a plan on how to repair it properly but isn't going to be cheap. That turned into 16 hours worth of labour using shrinkers, stretchers, English wheel and another machine that stamped the correct shape of the bottom into brand new metal. These were new dies Peter made to copy the original design struck in the metal.  That part got welded to the old panel after it had undergone some work.   

Everything worked out perfect except for the 2....1/2" holes that were drilled by somebody in the middle of the area where the spare tire carrier would sit.  After cutting out 2 filler pieces and welded them in, the top one is oil canning.  Hopefully Peter will be able to shrink this area so its right.

I took some pictures to show you of the finished part.  Plus also the rear cross member of the frame that the gas tank cover panel sits on.

Now onto pictures of the gas tank cover panel repaired.   I do not have the skills nor the proper equipment to be able to do this.

The picture #4 last one is showing the inside of the panel where the 1/2" holes were repaired and the oil canning is.

Back to their shop in the morning to take pictures of the 1903 Stanley steamer they are building, boy is it small, and to talk about where to go next on the oil canning.

the adventure with SHAZZBOTT continues

Very nice metal work there, Mike. You have to be very happy with that.
Tighten it up til it strips, then back it off a quarter turn

Wow, That is a complicated piece. It sure would be nice to have the original dies and something big enough to smack them together. Good job of knowing what is beyond you and finding someone who can do it. Well done.  8)

yes that's always the trick in deciding whether something can be reproduced.  Is there enough people out there wanting a 1933 standard or a 1934 1935 Chevrolet standard series " gas tank cover panel ".  Too make the tooling would be prohibitive unless those guys that make the rear panel for the 35 master and 36 std and master Chevrolet took it on.

The biggest problem is can you make & sell 1000 of them to lower the cost overall. ???  I figure the panel cost me $800, another $100 to techno strip it of paint and rust.....another 16 hours at $80 per to repair it.  That equals one very expensive "gas tank cover panel ".  But I see it as money well spent to have a good all steel car.

I don't have deep pockets , I do have an excellent line of credit , on which I make monthly payments from my old age pension, to a very low interest rate.

keeps me out of trouble.
