Trunk Floor Replacement in your Mopar

Do The Groceries Hit The Ground When You Drop Them In The Trunk? Avoid Embarrassment By . . .

There are two reasons to use a factory replacement part from a donor car instead of a reproduction. The first is if you are building a car that has little or no aftermarket support. The second is if you are an owner of a '69 1/2 440 Six Pack Super Bee (code A12) and you want to claim that it contains all factory stuff.

Muscle Car Restorations (MCR) in Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin, certainly had to learn to deal with the dwindling supply of original muscle over the last two decades, and anxious owners worried about their investments. It's actually common now to replace the passenger and trunk floors in most of the cars the company restores.

We're going to show you the correct procedure for a trunk floor replacement and installation on this Mopar B-Body, including having to deal with the annoying overlap you'll find on lesser-quality restorations. The methods used can be adapted to the replacement of just about any piece of sheetmetal on the car. Try it.
