Fibre glass RHD front pedal belly pans

These are made to order. Seem to have the bulge for the dual mastercylinder as well. I bought one recently as the RHD steel ones are as rare rocking horse s**t. I thought I would post up an advert to help others out. Keep all that road salt out and reduce drafts comming through pedal/steering holes ...

Re: Help needed fitting a rutsy lee rock and roll bed

Just called Rusty Lee himself and he has talked me through fitting even though I didn't buy direct from him. Great customer service and now makes complete sense. He said the same about floor thickness rusty1962. Thanks for the help guys.

Re: Help needed fitting a rutsy lee rock and roll bed

The bracket to the arch seems the wrong shape for the arch (see the pic). How thick is the ply on your cargo floor? Got 10mm ply packers to simulate ...

Help fitting rusty lee full width rock and roll bed

Is there an advisable thickness for the plywood to use on the floor under the bed? Also Sat it in the 59 panel and it wants to bolt in on top of ribs on wheel arch tubs, is this normal? If so should I try panel beat these flat or just squish them with bolts and spreader plate.
