Bootboards etc.

Post  reymondos on Wed Apr 13, 2011 7:59 pm

I am trying to get the trim for my beach car sorted and I would like to see some pictures of original bootboards and generally boot interiors. I am especially interested in the little carpets either side of the bootboard and the material and thickness of the actual board.

Thank you.

My bootboard is original and is 19 mm plywood It would have been 3/4" back in the day (It does not sit as low as it should due to me having a spare radial tyre. You can see a slight difference in height to the carpet on the left. It should sit level with the boot rubber.
It is covered with a carpet shaped for the board (as were the two pieces either side of the boot) The original boot board carpet was stapled underneath. The pieces either side were glued to the metal supports.
Are you sure you had a board in yours. Do you have two brackets welded onto the back of the rear seat to slot the board into to support it? Hope the photo helps.

For some reason, I cannot see the photo.

It says "The image or video has been moved or deleted".

Thanks for the info anyway.
