HC Floor Pans

Postby mattbs1977 » Tue Sep 25, 2018 9:24 pm

Evening all!

Anyone know if it's currently possible to get replacement / repair floor pans for my '71 HC? The floors generally are pretty good but I've found a patch of holes on the drivers side which needs tackling!

Any guidance would be very well received! Cheers, Matt

We are working on it...... no idea if the outcome will be positive or the timescale yet but working on it all the same.

Who is working on this?
I would potentially be interested in some for Beigey (HC), and maybe for Honey (HB) as well. From memory the floorpans are the same?

Hi,

Some of the Club committee members are actively trying to source a reliable supply of re-manufactured floor pans, either imported from outside the EU, probably at great expense as yet not fully determined but probably in the region of £700 - £800 a set including boot floors, or made individually to order here in the UK. The latter is our preferred option.

It is absolutely no problem to find a manufacturer for panels. The main issue is the market.........it is a dead end if 10 customers over a period buy 10pc if the MOQ is 600pc.........or even 200pc.
