Series 2/3 6Cyl footwell Left Hand CAT1048LH


Hand made with templates taken from original footwells, not patterns, they have the re-enforcing ribs rolled in and come with the extra re-enforcing panel welded in place for the 4cyl or separate for the 6 cylinder. These panels are produced for the conscientious restorer that is looking to keep the original features of the panels produced by Land Rover that are not found in other reproduction panels. Please take a good look at the pictures and see the detail that is present. Each panel takes about half a day to make and is formed using traditional craftsman's metal forming techniques.

Left hand side only, please see CAT1048RH for the other side

The footwells are constructed to as near original dimensions that I can achieve (given the fact that every bulkhead I have measured was a slightly different size !), and I would say for concourse purposes about 95% accurate. (4cyl from a 1960 un molested bulkhead and 6cyl from a 1969 un molested (my own) bulkhead) Forming the ribs does create some distortion and pressing marks which can be taken out with the careful use of a hammer and dolly when fitting.

The panels come undrilled, for a number of reasons - it allows you to accurately locate the holes where you want them, so alleviating potential alignment problems and unsightly elongated holes, you only end up with the holes you require - and it keeps the final price down significantly.

The panels are made from zintec coated steel so have a good storage life before fitment, though a quick coating of oil will prolong this.

There are a couple of options available :-

Metal thickness - they are available in either 0.9mm thick which is the original thickness, or as a heavy duty version in 1.2mm. The thinner material gives better definition of the ribs and folded edges, whereas the thicker material is a third thicker, so more strength and longer before the dreaded metal worm can eat its way through again, though the ribs and folds are not as tight. As standard I supply in 0.9mm

Floor screw holes/tags :- if you want the original S2 style with the captive nut, or tags for the floor clips then I can weld these on for you. S3 may have the indentations

Brake cut outs - the servo needs a bigger hole than non servo, please state if this bigger hole is required for the 4 cyl, the 6 cyl comes with the bigger hole

There is no difference in the cost for either of the above options, but please state what your preferences are when ordering - if you do not specify then you will get 0.9mm thick and no floor tags

These are made to order so please alow a couple of weeks for delivery
