Hi Bruce,

I'm hoping to add the diff bump to the tool collection which currently consists of the main diff floor and the 2 brackets so at least then it'll be a full setup. Will try and get some pics up soon.

Stan....😀 If only I could. Would love to make loads of bits really but work is just too busy and I have no-where to store everything.

You're welcome Mark. Good to see it in a car. Looks like you're steaming along there.

I'll hopefully be welding in the inner arches this weekend and hopefully the heel board & trans tunnel.

Steve,

 

The steel sheet that you used is that zintec sheet steel?

Hi Bruce,

No it's CR4 1.2mm. I took the old floor to the supplier and this is what he recommended.

What is zintec? Any advantage in using it? Rust protection, better drawing?

Cheers

Steve,

 

Zintec was a pressing/drawing sheet steel originally made by British Steel for automotive panels and rust proofed by a zinc coating which also acts as lub when drawing!

Hmm, interesting. Are there any problems with welding together due to the coating or is it just a question of removing where the weld lines will be?

Always interested in any ideas to improve the panel and this sounds like a winner.

You should be able to weld that without any problem same as the Zinc rich weldthru primer, you just might have to watch for fumes.

You have a good point there Stuart as the EU have their eye on it, as it is a heavy metal!

I know it's probably not the same, but do you need a special primer to paint over it like you do with galvanising?

No but you do need to make sure its well keyed.

Just a quick note for those who are changing their heel board panel. The top return lip on the new panel is 2 or 3 times larger than the original so will need trimming to avoid fouling the mounting bracket recesses.

So as a future evolvement, it would be better to use Zintec then?

Always a good idea rather than not.

Hi Steve.

Do you have the TR6 diff floor panel and brackets still available for sale. Mine beyond repair.

Would be great to hear back from you.

I have sent my pm.

Cheers
