Re: 36' rear tail pan repair

I replaced the pan on my 36 Club Cabriolet.

In between other projects to get to it.

Re: 36' rear tail pan repair

When I installed my inner panel I cut it after the notch where that piece of wood is inserted. I’m not sure what the wood was actually used for. Maybe to finish off the trunk area? The cut was made...

Re: 36' rear tail pan repair

Just thinking, you may have to take the inner pan out section at a time to reach certain welds. I’m not sure it’s been a while.
