Rear panel..

Post by AMD 69 »

Hi Gents, has any one got any pics of a inner rear panel or total length of panel because I have to re make my one.
Many thanks Matt.

Hi Matt

Total length is 54” spot on, overall height is 4” plus an angled flange at the bottom. As you can see the centre section is quite different to accept the outer panel. You’re quite welcome to take measurements from mine if you’re down this way as it is quite complicated. Photo attached.

Regards

Kevin

Very many thanks Kevin , all I have left is the middle part of panel , and this is the only picture I have seen ! There are no pics on Google.

Yes I could buy the panel but for me it's quite a easy panel to make the thick bead is the worst bit.

Just a quick one , at the very end lip just past the triangle,s is this lip spot welded or 2 gas weld blobs to the quarter panels.....

I don’t think this flange is a welded one ( think I’m right in saying that ?!) but the lower horizontal flange at each end of the inner panel welds to the outer panel end lower lips each side and is also welded to the quarter panel bottom flanges so ties it all in.

Matt, I know you can make one but is it worth the effort, Esm sell them at a reasonable price the brackets included. I’ve bought one in the past and it fitted!

Have made the inner rear main chassis bracket,s and now on to the main panel with the hardest panel feature is the 1 inch by 13 inch bead pressing x2.
So will try and post pics of the ways which worked the best.
Cheers Matt.

Well I,ve made the MK1 bead press tooling for bead which is 13 & 7/8" long by 1" wide ....so my need question is how to form the bead as nice as possible so will try Hammer forming with a air hammer or a solid press bar as in the Pics....Will have to Pre- stretch the new panel for the extra metal gained for the bead this will help stop distortion at the ends.
