1959 floors, Mk 1 & 2 door repair panels - anyone used them?

Post by 63Traveller »

Afternoon all,

I had a quick search of the forum but didn't find any mention of this Ebay supplier I just came across - what-a-steel, based in Gloucester.

They seem to do a few Mini items - mostly external hinged door panel repair pieces, but also an early 1959 floorpan. Just wondered if anyone's used them and what the products are like?

Door repair panels etc. https://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/Vehicle-Part ... _uk&_sac=1

Thanks,
Steve

Never seen those before. But the panel looks good.

Can't imagine there being a fantastic demand though.

Ah, good to know that someone's used them and they're decent.

The guy's write up does seem genuine enough about what they are and how to use them.

Some pictures of how well they fit/how easy to use are always welcome.
Thanks

I have too. I bought an inner ribbed upper door repair panel for my Mk1. The pressing and folds on the panel were a perfect fit.
