View Full Version : TR2/3/3A What are these holes for? -59 TR3 floorboard

On my 59 TR3, behind each seat, on the floor, roughly centered between the rear fender and the drive shaft tunnel, is a hole, and on the under side of the floor pan of that hole is a caged 1/4-24 nut. What are they for?

Perhaps they are mounting points for the occasional rear seat?

I puzzled over a similar set of caged nuts on the passenger foot well of the front bulkhead until I realized that even though the blanking plates had been removed for the brake/clutch pedal box, the mounting points for the gas pedal of right hand steered cars remained.

That is the holes to mount the rear seat.
