That's good Hans at least they won't pull through the floor in the event of a very sudden stop. FWIW I replaced my MKl floors back in 1980 with I assume OEM stock. All that's holding my rear bolts on is a spacer similar to that which Bruce shows except it's threaded and it's held on by a metal strap about 3/4" wide and 3" long which has been welded to the floor pan. IDK if that's all the Factory ever provided.



Convertible: CKD 11/66 first registered 8/5/67. Owned since 3/77. 90% original sheet metal. 18GB +40 balanced with almost all new internals. Peter Burgess big valve fast road head. Piper 285. Fidanza FW. Basil's followers and pushrods. TR7clutch. TT exhaust. ARP everywhere. 123 ign. Needham 4synchro c/r box.. Stock rebuilt/replaced suspension. Superpro bushes. New brakes all round including all pipes in SS flex. Interior redone. CAMS approved roll bar and side bars. Lots more. Hybrid of o/e and show/fast road car. Not for sale - it's my toy!

GT: UK car built/sold December '78. Stripped back to bare shell (with extensive bodywork to come). Powered by 'worked' Rover 5 litre V8 (ex TVR Chimera) with efi. T5 box. FC IFS. CCE rear attached to Salisbury axle with Quaife. And a whole lot more to yet to come. Stealth is the word.

In reply to # 3737677 by Wes 66 MGB Bruce - I was replying to Hans' original question. You must have posted your response just as I was typing mine in. I can understand the confusion if you thought I was saying vice versa to your reply.smiling smiley

No worries, smileys with beer I am easily confused. winking smiley
Perhaps I was being a tad 'overprotective' from erroneous information, it can happen. grinning smiley

New photos. I bought the MOSS side trim for my '65 with some trepidation after following some of the posts on the subject. Lo and behold, it's working out perfect! I have more to go.

I also was able to change out my turn signal switch today. the original still worked, but the wiring was welded into the T/S housing, out it goes, besides, it was a rusty faded out mess.
