MGB MGB floor pan question

Just received my left side floor pan yesterday for the 76 B. It is not threaded for the seat rail screws like the last one I bought. Do I use the same bolts and find a nut for them or do I need a longer bolt after the new floor is installed?
Thanks
Rick

Rick, the pans I got weren't drilled either. I used "nut-zert" type inserts for mounting seat rails. I changed to 1/4-20 tho, so not "official" but I don't think the seats will care. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif


Bolts are the same length, too.

When I use the afternmarket floors without the captive nuts, I weld captive nuts underneath them before installing the floors....I'd rather do a little welding than pay the price for somebody else to do it...

What I do (where possible) is cut the old captive nuts from the old floors, clean them up & weld them to the new floors...after grinding the welds, they look just like original

Judges take note!

I'll take the demerits. As badly bent as this car was, I'd think those 1/4-20 bolts the least of the "botch-jobs" perpetrated on it. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/devilgrin.gif
