Hi Scott, Restoration Design makes this part.

Your floors look great! Nice to see they fit will and no monkeying around with the dimple location for the pedal cluster like on the orange ones.

Thanks Jim, belated reply I know but we had a bit of a hiatus towards the end of last year. Working on the rear of the car now and getting around to compiling engine parts.

Cheers
Scott

The RD shelf panels are well made and a good fit. However, unless they've added it since 2014 you'll have to fabricate the middle bracket for the underside. I sent photos to Mike back then, but I don't know if he started including the piece or not. I rounded off the forward corner a bit so I don't rip a hole in my forehead some day!

Spencer thanks for that. No one one wants a hole in the forehead. Had a small issue with the engine pan being slightly the wrong size even though the pressings are correct so Mark has reworked it to match the original. Also fabricated a new rear panel to replace the rusted one - you can see side by side in one of the pics.

Thanks Jim. Putting together engine parts as we speak. We have a case from a late '52 build '53 model car with various heads/accessories etc. Engine Number #30797. The engine that came with the car (#30393) has just completed a full (and beautiful) rebuild and is going into a '52 cabriolet restoration in Spain. I couldn't convince the owner to let me have it! At least we have a period correct starting point.
