I am looking to see if anyone sells the repro of the piece that goes behind the tail panel.....its a thin metal piece that is actually an extension of the trunk pan.....it exists inbetween the tailpanel and the trunk floor to tailpan braces (or the braces that are welded to the trunk floor and you bolt the bumper to these braces.) Ive checked Ricks and Classic Ind but neither selss the piece. I believe if you buy Classics' Full trunk pan repro then this piece is built in.

Its actually the thin piece that goes between those braces (PP-78s) and the tail panel. The thin piece extends the width of the trunk floor (its attached to the trunk floor and sticks up from it) and has holes in it for the bumper bolts. I should really get a picture since its hard to describe and I havent seen it available in the catalogs.

Have you tried these guys, they list a lot of stuff for the rear end trunk area.

The full trunk pans include that piece(all others do not have this section) plus you will need the two pieces I spoke of earlier (also included with full pan) also because they are the actual bumper supports that are welded to floor behind each pair of holes.

Yes....I have a pair of new braces to weld to the floor of the trunk and I just installed one of the semi full trunk pans (not the full that includes everything) and I am also replacing the tail panel. When I removed the tail panel, the thin piece I have been talking about in the picture ended up with alot of holes from drilling the tail panel spot welds. I thought it would be nice to just get a new piece (piece from picture). But if they are not readily available I will just make do with what I have. Thx.
