Series 2

Postby vee12jag » Fri Nov 27, 2015 2:14 pm

Hi all,
On my 56 series 2, 2 door, I have just fitted the new carpet which looks great and installed the rear seats and door cards.
Below the seat portion of the rear seat there is a vertical body panel that goes down to the floor, that is the width of the interior and about 8 inches high.
Does anyone know if this vertical section would have been originally carpeted or covered with a 'hardura' type panel, screwed into place. When I got my car it had a tatty panel covering this area but I know it was not original.
Thanks in advance.
Mark

My 52 MM has a body coloured panel which looks and feels like a hard compressed cardboard material screwed to the vertical panel with self tappers.
It has a sort of leather textured outer surface.

Yes it would have had the heel board installed, not carpet
