Floor question

Postby smudvapor » Tue Dec 02, 2014 6:55 pm

How thick was the original floor in a Mustang? The one in mine is 1/4 inch but I think it may have been replaced at one time. I bought another piece of wood but before I get too far I want to make sure that 1/4 inch is the correct thickness. Thanks.

Gas or electric?
Not sure if they are the same, but I can measure my original floorboard.

Electric. Also should there be a bar or something to support the back of the seat? Mine doesn't have anything.

Yes there should be a rear frame hoop on the electric version. See the first couple photos on this page. http://www.jrcentral.com/1965mustangjrimages.html
The floor should be 1/4" Masonite finished both sides

Are the front hoop and rear hoop the same size? I am going to make one but If they are different I don't really have a template to go from, even with the pictures. Also, how was it attached? It looks like it is mounted on top of the frame. The from hoop attaches on the outside. Are there brackets or something that I am missing? Are there any pictures of those anywhere so I can fabricate them?

Yes mounts on top. Not sure if the same size as the front hoop?
Best photo I can find.
