    Boot/trunk floor

    So Iím gonna have to replace the center section of the trunk floor/boot in my tr2. The cost of a new repoduction is out of my price range. So has anybody made one? How did you do the ribs in the floor?

    I’ve watched tush, never seen Elin. Both do very nice work, I must have missed it in my skimming of the videos, how did they make the pressing for the ribs?

    Here's a couple of videos that really helped me. Peter is quite the craftsman and is currently restoring a GT6.

    Awesome thank you Tush, that was what I was looking for. The wife is not gonna be happy when I do that, but maybe I can do it while I’m at work. I’ll have to see. I have to make a full pan, so it will be a bit of time I guess, and noise lol

    now I have more YouTube videos to watch
