Photos of rear draw units in a pre-63?

Post by vwJim » Sat Jun 29, 2019 8:19 am

Morning,

Anyone got any photos of the rear draw units fitted into a pre-63?

I'd like to know what happens in the corners? Are the draws only as wide as the rear hatch and there's nothing in the corners or should there be shaped units or just blanked over to make a flat surface?

Thanks

Hi Jim
Two sorts of narrow hatch rear drawers. One for those without rear cupboard behind rear seat with shallow depth and one for no cupboards full depth.
Both have shaped pieces to cover holes. If you look at your set of drawers you will see there is a ledge on the side onto which sits a veneered plycover with ring pull to lift up.
Will add pictures

Grey painted topped Drawers showing ledge, set of four Grey painted Side pieces and bearers which screw into luggage compartment side metal wall. Small pieces go round OS fuel pipe bump with matching piece on NS. Large pieces have round ring pull to assist with lifting. On the last picture it shows them as veneered. The fragments I got from etiennevert with the silver beige and basalt interior included side bearers and partially veneered tops.
