1969 convertible trunk floor
« on: October 14, 2006, 02:15:13 AM »
there are small round dents located in the back of my trunk floor roughly in the area where the traverse muffler is located. These are randomly located . Are these from the factory or just damage from almost 40 years of use? I thought i saw the same marks on the trunk floor of an e-bay picture. I need to replace the trunk floor and am wondering if i need to duplicate them. thanks

Are they spotweld indentations the full width of the panel, or larger "dents"? Got a photo?

These are larger dents about the size of the pick end of a body hammer. They are located right above the pass.side drain plug. I think you can see the same dents on a post from Buick GS on the restoration of his trunk floor. I saw them right before I wrote this so maybe I answered my own question. Take a look see what you think. I will try to get a picture posted as soon as i can figure out how to do it. Thanks

Just use the "Additional Options" item just below the box you type in, and you can upload photos directly from your hard drive.  :)
